The Tigers answered with a 16-4 tear which gave them a 21-17 lead at the 6:05 mark in the first half. Gallenberger and Grimm led the charge with seven and five points, respectively.

Gallenberger erupted for 15 points in the second half to help keep the Tigers in control. Junior guard Bryce Pedrin chipped in with 11 of his 12 points in the second half.

“Overall I thought our performance was pretty good on Saturday. We came out a little sluggish but we finished strong,” said Tiger head coach Eric Worth.

“We were able to attack on a consistent basis and get to the free-throw line. We shot 40 free throws for the game which is great.”

Grimm contributed 14 points and a team-high six assists. Gallenberger and Jordan Miller led HGHS in rebounds with six each.

“Derrick Grimm was an absolutely beast throughout the game. He really did a great job of providing energy and setting the tone for the rest of the guys,” said Worth.

“I just can’t say enough about his toughness. Devin Gallenberger was also big for us in the scoring department. Devin is a tremendous player that was able to get to the rim on a consistent basis.

“Overall, it was a great team effort and everyone contributed in one way or the other. It’s another steppingstone on our journey,” added the coach.

Stangel led a balanced Algoma attack with 15 points. The Wolves buried nine treys, led by Stangel’s five.
