Lady Tigers Overcome Early Struggles To Blast Bevier 55-40

The Scotland County Lady Tigers overcame a slow start to rally to defeat Bevier 55-40 in the opening round of the Novinger Tournament on November 28th.

The number seven seed Wildcats had visions of upsetting the second-seeded Lady Tigers after jumping out to a 18-10 lead in the first period.

Kirsten Johnston gave SCR-I the 2-0 lead when she knocked down a jumper from the wing to open the contest. After a put-back by Trisha Harvey made the score 4-3, Bevier went on an 11-3 run to build a 14-7 bulge and force a time out by Scotland County.

The stoppage didnít slow down the Wildcats who led 18-10 to close the first period.

The advantage was 21-12 with 4:51 left in the first half when SCR-I started to rally. Jessica Bair scored in the paint and Deidra Dochterman followed that up with a three pointer from the wing after Valerie Oldham forced a Bevier turnover on the press. Dochterman hit another from behind the arc and suddenly SCR-I was back in business, down just 3-20.

Scotland County finally got over the hump and regained the lead with 4:23 left to play in the third period. Scotland County trailed 25-24 at the intermission. But Dochterman hit a three pointer to put Scotland County ahead 29-28. Johnston then drilled back-to-back three pointers to expand the advantage to 35-28. SCR-I completed a 15-0 run to build a commanding 39-28 bulge closing out the period.

Bevier pulled within seven to open the final period but Johnston scored six straight to end any hope of a rally as Scotland County rolled to the 55-40 win.

Johnston finished with 23 points to lead all scorers. Dochterman and Bair each pitched in with nine points as SCR-I (1-1) advanced to the semifinals to take on #3 seed Novinger.
