The Tyrone Bobcats stayed alive to play again with a fourth quarter come-from-behind win over the Shattuck Indians, 35-32.

Tyrone trailed 26-22 at the end of the third quarter, but had their best offensive output of the game in the fourth quarter by outscoring the Indians, 13-6.

Shattuck had a last attempt to tie the game at the buzzer, but could not connect.

Willie Slater and Nerlin Rivera each scored 11 for the Bobcats, and Ethan Reece added 9.

The game was nip and tuck early with the first quarter ending with the two teams knotted at 10.

Shattuck grabbed a 10-4 advantage in the second to go up 20-14 at half.

Tyrone cut the lead back to six in the third, before their big comeback in the fourth.

Tyrone will take on Balko today at 3 pm in Shattuck in an elimination game. The three teams played three times during the regular season with Balko winning all three.
