Injuries Not Slowing Down Scotland County

Lady Tigers Win Third Straight With 51-36 Victory Over Rams

Heading into the season, Scotland County's senior dominated lineup led to high expectations for the current version of the Lady Tigers. But recent injuries have forced coach Jaryt Hunziker to insert some new faces into the starting lineup, and that has let SCR-I fans see there is more talent coming.

While the Lady Tigers got solid performances from its three remaining starters on Tuesday night in Queen City, some new faces also stepped up in the 51-36 win over Schuyler County.

Courtney Jackson and Aimee Dale have moved into the starting line-up and freshman Hailey Dial has joined the varsity roster. The trio combined for 15 points on Tuesday night to help secure the Tri-Rivers Conference game.

"Right now we are getting a lot of production from our bench," Hunziker said. "Megan Creek and Hailee Dial are giving us a welcomed boost on the offensive end while Courtney and Aimee have stepped into the starting lineup and helped us maintain our focus on the defensive end."

Early on it was Ashley Tague and Jamie Shaw doing the bulk of the scoring. The duo combined for eight points in the opening period to put Scotland County on top by one.

Skyler Alderton connected twice from behind the arc and Dale converted a three-point play in the second period as SCR-I built a 23-17 lead at the break.

The Rams trimmed the lead to 33-28 in the third period and made a push early in the fourth before Scotland County put the game away at the free throw line. The Lady Tigers made 10 of 12 free throws in the final eight minutes of the game to secure the 51-36 victory.

Tague scored eight of her game-high 14 points in the final period to help SCR-I improve to 11-4 on the year and 4-1 in conference play. Shaw finished with 12 points and Alderton had 10 points while Dial pitched in with eight points off the bench.
