The Jacksboro Tigerettes took to the road for their last regular season out of town game of the year to take on the Nocona Lady Indians Friday night.

The Tigerettes got off to a fast start but were unable to hold off Nocona's second half rally and fell to the Lady Indians 44-37.

The loss left the Tigerettes in a tie with the Holliday Lady Eagles for the last playoff spot in District 8-2A.

That issue will be decided Tuesday night, when the Tigerettes host the Lady Eagles in the final regular season game of the year.

The Tigerettes continued to play aggressive defense and efficient offense in the second quarter.

In other District 8-2A action, City View defeated Holliday and Bowie defeated Henrietta.

Tuesday night the Tigerettes will take on Holliday with the winner grabbing the final playoff spot in the district.
