It took the toughest team in the north to snap the Tigers’ four-game winning streak they had put together over the holiday break.

Douglas fell behind by a couple possessions early, but stuck with the Cougars until the midway point in the second quarter.

It was at that point last year’s state semifinalists went on a 30-4 run that ended at the end of the third quarter as Spanish Springs left with a 65-36 win.
