In their first game back since the holiday break, the St. Matthew Tigers looked in mid-season form on Monday as they easily beat the previously unbeaten Immaculata Saints to keep their undefeated record intact.

After a lacklustre first quarter in which the two teams combined for just 15 points, the Tigers outscored the Saints 20-9 in the second quarter to take a 26-18 lead at the half.

The Tigers would extend their lead to 13 in the third quarter and wound u winning by 15 by the time the final buzzer sounded.

The difference in the game was preparation while the diffference in the score game down to foul shoots, especially in the second half when the Tigers put on a clinic, going a perfect 7-for-7 from the free throw line compared to the Saints who were a dismal 1-for-13.

Brothers Shandon and Quinton Ashitei did most of the danage for the Tigers, combining for 33 of the team's 52 points. Shandon led all scorers with 20 points, while Quinton added 13, including a pair of three-point shots.

Caleb Dagenais added nine points for the Tigers and Josh McGrath contributed eight

With the win, the Tigers improved their record to 4-0 and are within striking distance of the Ashbury Colts who are undefeated in six games. St. Matt's will make one of those games up when they play the Notre Dame Eagles on Thursday.
