Rebels Dominate Tigers

Timbo hosts Rural Special in basketball


Timbo hosted Rural Special for the second meeting of the in-county rivals this season, and the Rebels dominated the Tigers in all three games.

The Rural Special junior girls won 34-11, the senior girls posted a 56-21 win and the senior boys took a 62-29 victory.
In the junior game, Aubrey Linville tossed in 14 points and Bellah Kirby added 8 for Rural Special. Mallory Mosley scored 9 for Timbo.

Rural Special’s Braylen Morgan hit three from long-range as part of her 15 points to lead the Lady Rebels in scoring. Brinley Morgan and Rayleigh Turner each added 10, Emily Morris 8 and Emma Goins 7.

The Lady Tigers got 7 points from Gracie Reny and 5 each from Madison Looney and Aubree Freeman.

The Rebels got 9 points from Kasen Stevens in the first quarter, including a trey for the first points of the game. Cole Linville and Jacob Morris also hit 3’s to help the team to an 18-6 first quarter advantage.

Gage Massey drove inside for the first points of the second quarter. He later made a trey but otherwise Timbo got just two freethrows on trips to the line by Dakoda McConniel and Kagen Morgan until late in the quarter when Rink notched the Timbo tally up to 15 points.

The Rebels, meanwhile, added another 18 points with treys from Alex Gracia and Brayden Jelks, two baskets and a freethrow from Stevens, and a freethrow from Morris. Linville contributed three buckets, the last of which was set up by him picking up a loose ball and passing it to Buddy Morgan, who tossed the ball up off the backboard for a Linville alley-oop.

The Rebels went on to lead 53-21 after three periods and the short-handed Tigers hung in with only five players dressed out.

Stevens and Linville each tallied 20 for Rural Special, while Brayden Jelks added 9 and Morris 6.

Hayden Rink hit 14 to lead Timbo in scoring.
