DEL CITY —
Playing without the injured Jay Finley for just their second game, the Tigers were sharper than on Thursday but still suffered several long offensive droughts that made keeping up with the athletic Eagles more difficult.
Blodgett was a bright spot for NHS. Playing with a dozen stitches after hitting the ground hard on Thursday, he dominated the paint for NHS.
“He’s a tough kid,” Thornton said. “He’s such a big part of what we do, and he just keeps battling and battling inside.”
Blodgett led NHS with 19 and Daniel Harper added 15 and five assists. Cannon led Del City with 20 and Breiman Alexander added 15.
NHS will round out the tournament at 10:30 a.m. today at Midwest City.
