Slideshow: Fridley Hosts Highland Park in Basketball
Boys varsity was the fourth matchup Tuesday at the Tigers' gym.
Fridley High School was the scene for four basketball matchups with St. Paul's Highland Park Tuesday: varsity and JV, boys and girls. Like the other home squads, Fridley's varsity boys (0-4) lost to the Scots, although they led out of the gate.
The final, 59-50, reflected a hard-fought contest in which Fridley showed improvement over their first home game, a 13-point loss to Minneapolis Southwest Dec. 2. But in the end the Tigers couldn't hold off Highland Park as Columbia Heights' boys did last week.
