CLYDE -- For somebody to end Frenship’s season, it was going to take a solid, relentless effort from opening tip to final horn.

That was exactly what Keller Timber Creek turned in Tuesday in a 54-48 victory against the Tigers in a Class 6A area-round matchup.

The Lady Falcons (17-7) stood toe-to-toe with Frenship and never let the Tigers grab control in a game that was always up for grabs.

Airron Gaydon cranked in 5 3-pointers, three in the final period, to keep Frenship (21-6) in range, despite a deficit that grew to nine points down the stretch. But the Tigers never quite got over the hump in the season-ending setback.

Gaydon’s 15 points led Frenship, while Addison McClure notched 9. Freshmen Abbi Holder and Abby Boyce chimed in with 8 apiece.
