Prattville could never regroup as the Tigers then ended the first period with an 26-8 lead, and never looked back in swatting away the Lions, 68-54.
The cold shooting Lions could never get into any rhyme and for most of the first half, Calhoun raced up and down the court building a large lead. By half time the Tigers led, 37-21.
Midway of the third quarter Calhoun’s lead increased to 22 points at, 52-30, with 5:26 left in the period.
