HURON — The Huron Tigers rallied back to within four points, but could overcome a 10-point deficit they faced in the opening quarter against the Yankton Gazelles on Tuesday night at Huron Arena.

Yankton, which held a 27-10 scoring advantage in the first and third quarters combined, held on for a 42-38 victory against the Tigers.

After trailing 12-2 at the end of the first quarter, Huron found some offense and was able to outscore the Gazelles 16-8 in the second quarter, thus slicing its deficit to just two points, 20-18, at the half.

Yankton, which had won on just two previous occasions this season, regained control by putting up 15 points in the third quarter. The Tigers managed just eight points during the first eight minutes of the second half.

Just as it had in the final eight minutes of the opening half, Huron put up more points than the Gazelles in the final quarter, but not enough to complete the come-from-behind bid.

Whitlee Larson and Lindsay Hale finished with 12 and 11 points, respectively, to lead Yankton, which is now 3-9 overall and 3-7 in the Eastern South Dakota Conference. Morgan Tessier pulled down five of the team’s 19 rebounds and had five steals.

Sarah Carr was the lone player to reach double figures with 16 points for the Tigers, who are now 4-8 overall and 3-7 in the ESD. Calla Rounds had six points, while Jazmin Newton added five points.

Carr also had a team-high 12 rebounds to help Huron to a 37-19 advantage on the boards and also had a pair of assists.

Hindering the Tigers’ effort to earn the victory were 25 turnovers and a 2-for-12 performance from beyond the 3-point arc.

Huron will now have a week off before hosting Watertown at 7 p.m. on Tuesday at Huron Arena.
