The Konawa Tigers, anxious to prove themselves after a so-so season last year, jumped all over the Stratford Bulldogs here Tuesday night, then cruised to a surprisingly easy 64-35 victory in the season opener for both teams.

The Tigers opened an immediate 11-1 advantage with Trent Davis, a lightning quick senior guard, and Zach Snow scoring all 16 of the Tigers’ first quarter points. David scored nine of his 15 points for the game in that opening period.

Snow just kept getting hotter as the game progressed, eventually winding up with a game-high 28 points, including 10 in the final eight minutes.

Justin Little added nine more in a game that was really never close.

Stratford did climb back into it in the second period, pulling to within five, but only briefly. By halftime, Konawa had built a 10-point lead, and it only got worse for the Bulldogs from there.
