Seward takes 3rd at Cougar Tip-Off

Posted: Sunday, December 21, 2008

Robert Perea scored 18 points, Peter Fleming added 13 and Dylan Beck netted 11 in sending the Seward boys to a 52-37 win over Colony and a third-place finish in the 29th Annual Alaska/Cougar Tip-Off tournament on Saturday at Service High School in Anchorage.

Perea, named to the all-tournament team, drained three of Seward's four 3-pointers and was 3-of-4 from the foul line in helping the Seahawks avenge a semifinal setback to East, which lost in the championship game to defending Class 4A state runner-up Bartlett, 67-45.

Trailing 19-15 after the first, the Seahawks knotted the game at 25 at halftime before limiting the Knights to just two points in the third quarter in taking command.

Seward then capped the game with a 16-10 fourth quarter in taking third place.
