RANDOM LAKE – A strong defense and transition game ignited the Howards Grove Tigers to a 55-35 rout over Random Lake in Central Lakeshore Conference boys basketball action here Tuesday night.

The Tigers remained atop the CLC with Ozaukee at 6-1 and improved to 9-3 overall. HGHS, a winner of three in a row, will host Ozaukee in a showdown for the sole lead Friday night.

The Tigers trailed 11-8 after one quarter before kicking it into gear – outscoring the Rams 47-24 the rest of the way.

“I thought our guys did a great job of competing from start to finish. We played very good team defense and we did a nice job finishing plays,” said Tiger head coach Eric Worth.
