SOUTH PLAINFIELD, NJ – A fast start is great, but most coaches will tell you, it is how a team finishes and improves that is the key. After a slow start the South Plainfield Lady Tigers have hit their groove. The Tigers were riding a three game winning streak entering Tuesday night’s White Division matchup against the Woodbridge Barrons. The Tigers hoped they could avenge their season opening 65-48 loss to Woodbridge and extend their winning streak to four. The Lady Tigers got a quick start, bent in the middle and finished strong to go on and beat Woodbridge 55-52.

In a seesaw game of momentum and runs, the South Plainfield Lady Tigers bolted out to a 34-21 lead early in the third quarter. Woodbridge countered by going on a 24-4 run which put the Barrons up 45-38 in the fourth quarter. The Tigers, however, have grown since their early season woes. The Tigers snapped back tossing in 19 fourth quarter points to edge the Barrons 55-52. The Tigers’ Caity Hughes’ scored on a layup to put the Tigers up for good 46-45. Syleen Reyes iced the game for South Plainfield sinking four of six free throws in the final two minutes of play.

The Tigers defense played a huge part in South Plainfield’s win. Brooke Timinski who scored 19 points on opening night for Woodbridge was held to five points.
