On Friday, Jan. 20 the Tigers fell to the Avon Orioles 72-64 at home.

Senior Joe Counts scored the first points for the Tigers with a three making it 3-1 FHS. Not too much later junior Jeremy Szilagyi also scored a big three for FHS making it a three-point game with Avon up 15-12. To finish off the first quarter sophomore Armaan Franklin scored, tying the game off at 17.

Szilagyi was the main scorer for the second quarter with over seven points. At the end of the third half Avon lead 37-35.

“Once I get the feeling for three-point shots that game, it is pretty easy for me continue. It almost comes routine for me,” Szilagyi said.

Counts scored the first points game of the second half for the Tigers making it 42-37 Orioles. Senior Connor Washburn had a dunk quickly after making it 44-39. Fishers then got possession of the ball after Avon turned it over. At the end of the third, Avon had the lead 56-47.

Washburn had a second dunk of the night making it only a five point game at 60-55 Avon. With less then a minute to go Avon lead 67-59. FHS was not able to top the Orioles and they lost 72-64. The tigers are now 6-7 for their season and 1-2 for conference.

“We played a good game but we weren’t able to finish it the way we wanted to. In the end this will help us learn and prepare us to be stronger for the next game,” Szilagyi said.
