Douglas coach Werner Christen said he was pleased with his team's play against Cimarron. The Tigers led 28-24 at halftime and extended their lead to 45-28 after three quarters.

We were a little sluggish in the fourth quarter. We didn't play well in the fourth quarter. We were pretty happy with the results."
