The Graceville Tigers dropped a second straight close game at home Saturday night, as a second-half rally fell short in a 52-48 defeat at the hands of the Rutherford Rams.

But Graceville regrouped after the break, settled down its defense, and controlled the third period by limiting the Rams to just six points anl cutting the deficit to 12 going into the fourth.
