Lady Tigers ‘Put All the Pieces Together’ in 49-24 Victory
A winning basketball performance is a lot like putting a puzzle together. On Tuesday night at Green City, the Scotland County girls appeared to put all of the pieces together for a 49-24 victory over the Gophers.
“We played a pretty good game tonight in all phases” said coach T.J. Young. “We shared the ball well, played good defense, communicated and got up and down the court like we wanted to.”
The results were apparent early as Scotland County built a 17-4 lead in the first period as Kirsten Johnston and Melissa Cotton nailed three pointers.
Freshman Ashley Tague scored eight points and grabbed four rebounds in her first career varsity start.
The scoring slowed down a bit in the second quarter but the Lady Tigers kept up the pressure on defense, holding the Gophers to only four points.
Jessica Bair and Johnston each had four points in the third period as the Lady Tigers pushed the cushion to 42-14.
Jamie Shaw scored four points down the stretch as SCR-I turned the contest over to its youngsters who iced the 49-24 victory.
Johnston led Scotland County with 13 points. Tague and Bair each added eight points in the win. Kelsey Frazier scored three points and grabbed a team-high eight rebounds. The Lady Tigers improved to 3-4 with the victory.
