Lady Rockets blast MTCS in 5-A final
The Forrest Lady Rockets had no trouble at all in their Region 5-A Championship game versus MTCS Wednesday night in Eagleville as they dominated from start to finish for an easy 58-23 victory. The Lady Rockets will host longtime rival Moore County on Saturday night at 7:00pm.
The Lady Rockets swarmed all over the Lady Cougars, jumping out to an insurmountable 17-1 first quarter lead and a 32-10 halftime margin. FHS head coach Robby Reasonover played reserves for much of the second half as ten players hit the scoring column.
The sub-state game will be an interesting battle because the two teams split during the regular season with each team gaining a road victory. Moore County standout Vanessa Pincheon guaranteed a victory over Forrest earlier this month in Cornersville after the regular season finale game when she said "when we get all of our players back, my sister included, we will beat Forrest."
