Lady Bulldogs finish fourth

Friday, February 8, 2008

The Cornersville Lady Bulldogs traveled to Lynchburg Tuesday night, hoping to beat the Moore County Raiderettes and wrap up third place in District 11A, but played poorly for the third-straight game and lost 62-47.

The loss left both teams with identical 7-5 district records, forcing a coin toss after the game to determine seeding in the district tournament next week. Cornersville lost the flip, leaving them in the fourth spot. The Lady Dawgs will still host a first-round game.

Cornersville head coach Micah Landers was not happy with the way his team played and said after the game, "We are playing bad at the worst possible time. They brought their game and we didn't. They physically beat us on both ends of the floor tonight."

Sara Nelms opened up the scoring for the Lady Bulldogs when she took a pass from Sara Barnett and drove in for a lay-up to make it 2-0. Kaitlyn Hunter tied the game at four apiece and then the bottom dropped out on the Lady Bulldogs.
