Although Cornersville had beaten Fayetteville twice already this season, the Lady Tigers (1-11) gave CHS fits early on in Friday's contest and held a 28-20 lead at halftime.
The Lady Bulldogs, however, straightened things out after the break and outscored Fayetteville 42-21 over the final two periods to take home the 13-point win.
Cornersville shot just 25 percent (11-of-44) through the first three quarters of play before hitting all seven field goal attempts in the fourth period to finish 18-of-51 from the floor overall, highlighted by a 6-of-16 effort from three-point range.
The Lady Bulldogs also outrebounded the Lady Tigers 37-33 and knocked down 20-of-29 free throws, while Fayetteville attempted only 13 foul shots, hitting nine.
"I thought we actually executed well offensively in the first half, but we missed a bunch of easy shots," said CHS coach Micah Landers. "We played really well in the fourth quarter. We used a bigger lineup and it helped. The girls did a good job of seeing each other on the court and finding the open man."
Despite hitting 7-of-12 field goal attempts in the first quarter, the Lady Tigers shot just 30 percent (17-of-57) from the floor, which included a 6-of-26 performance from beyond the arc.
Tamia Baker buried six treys and paced Fayetteville with 20 points, while Trevah Thompson notched 12 points.

The Lady Bulldogs tallied five straight points on a Brittany Umbles foul shot and a pair of baskets from Holt and Rogers to narrow the gap to 17-13 early in the second period before the Lady Tigers outscored CHS 8-2 over the next three and a half minutes to push their lead to 25-15.
