TAWAS CITY – It was kind of expected. Winning their Division 3 district championship on their home court still felt pretty good for the Tawas Area boys basketball team however. The Braves, hosting Alcona in the district title game Friday, were able to avoid the upset minded Tigers, pulling away from them as the night went on, pulling off a 65-41 victory and their second straight district championship.

“It was good and you never know, it is March and crazy things happen in March and we hope some crazy things happen for us,” head coach Todd Kaems said. “I thought we were solid defensively and that was the big difference maker. I thought everything that Alcona got in the first half, they really earned and we only gave up six points in the third quarter, so that was big moving forward. Defensively I thought we were solid and offensively we were on and off, we played solid at times and struggled a bit at other times, but overall, it was a good night.”
