Cold Shooting Night Ends Lady Tigers' Title Hopes

Teams can generally overcome a low scoring quarter, but on Wednesday night in Shelbyville, the Lady Tigers appeared to need a pry bar to try to remove the lid on their basket.

Scotland County was held to a lone point in the opening period of the semifinals game versus Knox County. Megan Creek's free throw was all that went on the score board in the first eight minutes. SCR-I standard stout defensive performance kept the team close, trailing 8-1.

Jessica Morrow had six points in the second period and Creek added a bucket but the Eagles added to the lead, going to the locker room on top 20-9.

Creek had six points in the third period and Randi Slaughter hit a three pointer but it wasn't enough. That was thanks to the hot shooting of Knox County sub Taylor Lincoln. She came off the bench to drill three, three-pointers as Knox County poured in 19 points to blow the game open.

That proved to be plenty of cushion, as both teams scored just five points in the final eight minutes.

Scotland County's tough shooting night spilled over the free throw. The Lady Tigers made just seven of 17 free throws in scoring a season-low 24 points.

Creek led SCR-I (11-3) in scoring with 11 points. Lincoln topped Knox County with 13 points.
