Varsity Loss/JV win for South Girls Basketball 11/11/21

From Coach Tyler Johnson

The Lady Cougars traveled to conference foe Morristown on Thursday night falling 53-48.

After a slow start in the 1st quarter trailing 19-6, the Cougar offense came alive in the 2nd. Mary Gasper knocked in two huge threes to cut the lead to 4 going into the break. 

In the second half, South continued to play well in their zone defense. Loryn Pate dropped in 2 three pointers as the teams traded baskets before South took the lead. 

Ultimately, Morristown’s ability to knock in clutch free throws down the stretch assured the Lady Jackets of the win 53-48. 

The loss drops South to 1-2 (0-2) on the season. They look to rebound against Rising Sun on Friday night at home.

The JV Lady Cougars were tested for the first time this season and squeaked out a 38-34 win to improve to 3-0 (2-0). Makayla Puckett and Molly Eden led the JV Lady Cougars with 8 points each.
