The game was tightly contested for most of the night. The Beavers held a one-point advantage, 18-17, after the opening quarter of play.

Going into the half, however, the Red Dragons opened up a 38-33 lead.

The third quarter belonged to the Beavers.

Beaver?Local came out of the locker room fired up and outscored Niles, 22-9, to take a 55-47 advantage into the final frame.

In that last quarter, however, the Red Dragons exploded for 31 points to come away with the road victory.

"Both teams tried to put some pressure on each other early,"?Beaver?Local coach Jake Walgate said. "We came out fresh after the half, but in the last quarter we were just unable to finish our plays. We started to play too fast."

Troy Hudson had a big night for the Beavers finishing with a game-high 23 points to go along with five assists and 10 rebounds.

Jared Lyder wasn't far behind with 21 points and nine boards on the night.

Chase Hilliard netted seven points, while Josh Underwood finished with three points, seven rebounds and two assists.

The Beavers won't have much time to worry about Friday's loss.

Beaver?Local will play at Oak Glen today.

"It should be a really good game,"?Walgate said. "I got a chance to watch Oak Glen play and they're tough and big. A lot of our game comes on the inside so it's going to be a big task, literally.

"I think the short turnaround will be good for us. We've got to get things back on track."
