Tigerettes seize home opener
Too many times, already this season, the MCHS Tigerettes have led early, and led late, only to see victory disappear from their hands in a 0-5 start to the year.
But not this time, not at Dottie Kelso Memorial Gymnasium and not in front of a big home crowd in their home opener as the Tigerettes led from midway through the first quarter, to the end in 48-34 win over the Giles County Lady Bobcats.
"I'm happy, because it was at home and it was our first district game," said Tigerette sophomore point guard Mecia Reed. "We were on a five-game losing, so it was great to get this one at home."
Lady Bulldogs edge Eagleville
The Cornersville Lady Bulldogs ran their record to 4-0 on Monday night by defeating the Eagleville Lady Eagles 41-38 on the road despite being without the services of starting center Ashley Umbles, who was sidelined by a shoulder injury.
Cornersville coach Micah Landers appeared he might have a relatively stress free night early on, as CHS led by as many as 19 points in the first half and held a 25-8 advantage early in the third quarter.
LMS Tigers keep on rolling
The LMS Tigers faced their sternest test of the season Monday night in Lewisburg, coming away with a hard-earned 41-36 win over an equally athletic Meridianville squad.
LMS (4-0) jumped out to an early 4-0 lead behind D'Andre Brown, who scored the game's first basket and moments later, stole the ball and fed Tre Crutcher for a score.
Christian Cleveland finally got the Eagles from Alabama in the scoring column before Brown scored on one of two from the charity stripe and on another steal and score, making it 7-2 Lewisburg.
Huntland completes sweep of CMS Lady Bulldogs
Huntland got the better of the Cornersville Lady Bulldogs (4-6) for the second time this season, as CMS dropped a 35-27 decision to the Lady Hornets at home on Monday night.
After defeating Cornersville 27-17 in their previous encounter on Oct. 25, Huntland built a 22-12 lead in the first half of Monday's contest before opening up a 31-14 advantage at the end of the third quarter en route to claiming the eight-point victory.
Tigers bow to Bobcats in home opener
After a close first half, the Giles County Bobcats turned on the Tigers, outscoring Marshall County 39-23 in the second half of their home opener, en route to an easy 61-42 win.
"I thought we started the game strong both offensively and defensively, Giles was playing us man early on and they had a hard time guarding us,"said MCHS head coach Adrian Wilson. "They made the adjustments and went zone and our offense stalled. We became stagnant versus the zone and did not move well against it, thus, limiting our point production and increased turnovers."
Bulldogs come up short against Eagleville
The Cornersville Bulldogs (0-4) are still searching for their first win of the season after dropping a 41-29 decision on the road to the Eagleville Eagles (4-3) on Monday night.
Although the Bulldogs nipped at Eagleville's heels for much of the night, the Eagles held a 22-17 lead at the end of the first half prior to opening up a 34-21 advantage late in the third quarter.
Hornets swarm CMS Bulldogs
On Monday night, the Cornersville Middle School Bulldogs (1-7) suffered their second straight loss when they dropped a 44-28 decision to the Huntland Hornets at home.
After building an 18-8 lead in the first half, Huntland broke the game open by using a 23-8 run to forge a 41-16 advantage early in the fourth quarter before coasting to their second win of the season over CMS.
