WARREN, Pa. – Warren fell behind early in its Region 5 showdown with Fairview and couldn’t quite recover, falling to the unbeaten Tigers, 62-46.

Both teams came into the game with identical 3-0 region records, and with the win, Fairview remains District 10’s lone unbeaten boys’ team at 11-0 overall.

The Tigers’ opening 20-3 spurt was punctuated by a steal and one-handed jam from Logan Frazao.

Frazao scored 13 of his 16 points in the first half and was named Icyy Ink Player of the Game.

After jumping out to the early lead, Fairview never led by fewer than nine until a Brady Berdine bucket for Warren cut the lead to six, 44-38 with five minutes to play.

The Tigers responded, going on an 18-8 run to close the game.

James Sitter scored a game-high 22 points for Fairview, including 11 in the fourth quarter to help the Tigers pull away. Jeremy Frazao also scored seven of his 13 points in the fourth, while Tyler Shultz finished with eight. The Tigers also drained eight threes in the game, including four from Sitter.

The Tigers held Warren’s starting backcourt of Tommy Nyquist and Parks Ordiway without a point in the first half. The duo heated up in the second half, finishing with 10 and eight points, respectively.

Owen Becker added nine points for the Dragons (6-4, 3-1), while J.T. Blum and Kody Vega had seven apiece.
