Tigers, Panthers stand on top of Tah-Neva League
Very little separated the Carson Valley and Pau-Wa-Lu middle school seventh grade boys basketball teams this fall.
Not only did the rivals finish first and second during the Tah-Neva League regular season. They met again in the league tournament finals on Saturday at Incline High School, where the CVMS Tigers won, 31-29.
CVMS finished 11-2 overall for the season, with both losses coming at the hands of the Panthers. The Tigers won three straight tournament games on Saturday.
Pau-Wa-Lu finished 12-1 overall, including a 37-36 win at CVMS last week and an earlier five-point win.
“It was a close game, unfortunately, somebody had to win and somebody had to lose,” Panthers coach Mike Downs said. “The neat part of it was that between games, you’d see them and they were all being friends.”
