The Mansfield Tygers won their fourth ball game in a row Saturday evening at Lexington, downing the Minutemen 53-41. The Tygers did so without the services of their All-Ohio point guard Keon Johnson, who missed the game with a right ankle injury. 

Without Johnson, the Tygers used a balanced scoring attack with CJ Simmons knocking down a team-high 17 points, while Donovyn Benson added nine, Mario Davison had eight, Robert Jones six, all in the fourth quarter and Malon Samuel scored five, Jalen Reese four, Jameel Butts three.

Lexington kept the game close for nearly the entire game with Mason Willeke scoring a game high 22 points, but the Minutemen would get little scoring from anyone else. Lex's Matt Barkett was the squads second leading scorer with six, Bryan Truax had five, Trent Richwine four, and Dan Rinehart and Michael Boals each chipped in with jus two.  

The loss wraps up a tough weekend for the Minutemen which saw them fall at Wooster Friday 81-51, before coming up short on Saturday to Senior High. Lex now stands at 8-5 in all games and 3-3 in the Ohio Cardinal Conference. 

The win by the Tygers keeps Mansfield in the drivers seat in conference play at 9-2 overall and 6-0 in the OCC.  Senior High will host the red hot Wooster Generals at Pete Henry Gym next Friday in the WMFD Game of the Week. The Generals, who have won six out of their last seven will travel to Massillon on Tuesday before heading to Mansfield Senior on Friday. It is not known at this time if the Tygers will have the services of injured 1,000 point scorer Johnson by Friday's game.
