Milan No Match For Lady Tigers in 59-12 Domination
Sports fans are not going to find much more of a dominating performance in 2008 than the one the Scotland County girls turned in February 7th at the expense of league rival Milan.
The Lady Tigers got it done on the offensive end, hitting double digits in points in each of the first three periods before calling the dogs off.
But even more impressive was the defensive effort. SCR-I held Milan to five points or less in each quarter, including a big goose egg in the second period.
The home team thrilled the crowd with a 21-point outburst in the first eight minutes of play.
Valerie Oldham did the early damage, with five points to open play. Kelsey Frazier then hit a pair of field goals midway through the opening frame to make it 13-2 and force a timeout.
The stoppage didnít slow down SCR-I. The Lady Tigers put up eight more points in the final three minutes capped off by a fast break bucket from Melissa Cotton to make it 21-5.
Kaitlin Caldwell had a big second period, scoring three field goals early on to help boost the advantage to 38-5.
The Lady Tigers slowed down a bit in the second half, scoring just 14 points in the third quarter. That total shrank to seven in the gameís final eight minutes but did feature buckets from freshman Anna Duley, Skyler Alderton and Jamie Shaw.
Oldham led all scorers on the night with 13 points. Caldwell and Kirsten Johnson each finished with eight and Melissa Cotton added seven. Kelsey Frazier pitched in with six points to go along with a team-high seven rebounds.
SCR-I improves to 8-11 on the year and has a 3-2 conference mark.
