The Brewton Middle School boys started their season with a loss to Escambia County and ended their season with a three game losing streak that concluded with a 61-35 loss to Escambia County Middle School to end their season 6-5.
After jumping out to a 2-0 lead with 4:43 in the first quarter, Escambia County went on an 8-0 run to take an 8-2 lead with 3:31 left.
Brewton went on an 5-0 run to cut the Escambia County lead to 8-7 with 1:59 to go in the first as Tyler Dehoff scored two of his leading 11 points and Darrion Salter scored for the Tigers.
That was the closest Brewton got as Escambia County put together a 7-0 run to close out the quarter leading 15-7.

Brewton again cut the Escambia County to 10 points at 33-23 with 3:01 left in the third quarter, but Escambia County went on an 8-0 run over a 58 second span to go back up 41-23 and hang for a 43-26 lead heading into the last quarter of play.
The fourth quarter was much of the same as Escambia County doubled Brewton's points scored in the quarter and closed out the game on a 8-0 run in the final 51 seconds to take a 61-35 win.

The Tigers fell to 9-2 as they closed out their season.
After falling behind early 6-0 with 5:01 left in the first quarter courtesy of Brewton turnovers, the Tigers finally got on the board at the 3:14 mark as Ashley Autrey scored for the Lady Tigers.
Escambia County continued to frustrate the Tigers as turnovers led to a 10-2 lead with 2:39 left in the first before Tikedra Taylor scored and got the Tigers within 10-2.
