The Jacksboro Tigers fell to 1-3 in district play as they fell to the City View Mustangs Tuesday night.
The Tigers fell behind early as the Mustangs raced out to a 18-6 lead at the end of the first quarter. The Tigers were able to play City View even in the second quarter and sent the Mustangs into halftime leading 26-13.
The third quarter was the best quarter of the evening for the Tigers as they outscored the Mustangs 17-12 to enter the fourth quarter within range as they trailed City View 38-30. However, the Tigers were not able to complete a comeback as they fell to City View 53-40.
