When MCHS head coach Jason Tigert scheduled the cross-region regular season rivalry game at David Lipscomb he knew it was going be a tough match-up.
After winning at home versus Giles County on Friday, Tigert's Tigers took a Saturday night bus trip to Nashville to take on the Broncos in a re-match of last year's Region 5-AA quarterfinal, and the outcome was the same.
Lipscomb prevailed last year 75-59, ending the Tigers season and came back to win in a low scoring affair 49-32 Saturday.
Marshall County's high scoring offense only managed to break double digits in one of the four quarters.
Hunter Osborne was the only Tiger in double figures with 10 points. Kedren Johnson scored 9 points, Dominic Matthews had 7, and Cameron McCullough and Brandon Burns had 2 points apiece.
The Tigers (16-5, 8-1), who remain one game behind Spring Hill (13-5, 9-0) in the District 10-AA standings travel to Lewis County (6-11, 4-5) on Tuesday before returning home for a Friday night match-up with Hickman County (5-10, 2-6).
First place Spring Hill has all home cooking this week versus Giles County and East Hickman.
