The Breaux Bridge Tigers traveled to Northside Friday night, where they lost to the Vikings by a score of 62-54.

Breaux Bridge (4-14, 2-4) jumped out to a commanding early 12-2 lead, but with just two minutes left in the first quarter, Jasper Turner (10) helped Northside (20-3, 4-1) climb back into the game. Breaux Bridge’s Aaron Lastrape (23), however, converted a tear drop in the paint as time expired, boosting the Tigers to a 14-11 advantage entering the second quarter.

Lastrape (23) gathered back his scoring ways seconds into the new quarter — he made a well-contested three from long range to put Breaux Bridge five points ahead. It appeared Northside find the rhythm it lost, but Kevin Lewis (20) missed his potentially posterizing dunk. In return, Tiger Randall Menard (3) missed his dunk, but Travin Dural (2) followed in his tracks and slammed home the rebound.

Despite the theatrics, the score was locked at 19 for minute before the Tigers took a two-point lead with fewer than two minutes left in the half. Breaux Bridge’s Kavahra Holmes (5) gave the Tigers a seven-point lead with three fast break lay-ups, but Northside battled back and drained a buzzer-beater three for a 28-27 halftime lead.

For a vast majority of the third quarter, the scored was stuck at 34. Once Lewis (20) and Turner (10) broke loose and scored, Dural (3) got the memo and scored Breaux Bridge’s first points in over four minutes. But once Turner (10) missed the jumper and Lewis (20) slam-dunked the ball for a buzzer-beater jam, the Tigers seemed to collectively hang their heads.The Vikings cruised, with plenty of momentum, into the fourth quarter.

Viking Dion Broussard (2) twisted the dagger late in the fourth, giving Northside its largest lead at nine and all but sealing the game.

The Vikings will ride their current two-game winning streak to Tuesday when they host Cecilia. Breaux Bridge will look to snap its three-game losing skid at St. Martinville.
