The everlasting rivalry between the Portola Tigers and the Quincy Trojans is alive and well — and it gave birth to a “W” in the win-loss column for the Tigers as they squeaked past Quincy, 65-62, in the headline match of the 2014 Tiger Classic on Saturday night.

Both teams came into the game at 2-0, with Quincy defeating Biggs, 71-31, and Modoc, 73-53, while Portola bested the same two teams on 68-37 and 50-36 final scores, respectively.

From the outset the game was Portola’s to lose as it ran up as high as an eight-point lead in the opening eight minutes. Quincy was able to recover just a bit and pulled to within five by the end of the first period.

When rivals clash, great basketball tends to happen.

The clash between the Quincy Lady Trojans and the Lady Volcanoes of Chester proved that point last week as the two met in Quincy — and the Trojans fought back hard to win the game, 42-41, on a buzzer-beating three-point shot by Brooke Potter.

The Trojans led by as many as 12 points in the first half of the game, thanks mostly to the stout offensive and defensive output of Kaylin Henderson, who alone put up 10 of Quincy’s 22 points in the half. Fellow senior Jasmin Sherman scored five points on two buckets and a free throw as well in the first 30 minutes.

Crowe Herbertson-Deemer added 10 points on the night and seven rebounds, two assists and two steals. Jake Rick, D.J. Davis and Erik Schwartz each scored eight points in the game, with Mike Fowler putting up a pair of buckets.
