The Lady Bulldogs led the opening quarter 12-10, but by the halftime break the Lady Jackets of Trousdale County had slipped ahead of Red Boiling Springs with a 22-20 advantage.

The game was definitely intense from the tip off, staying neck-in-neck throughout the game.

Two free-throws by senior Heather Jenkins tied the game at 24 each, with 4:38 remaining in the period.

MCHS vs Christ Presbyterian Academy, February 28, 2011 - Region 5AA Semi-Final

By Marcus R. Darnell

The Macon County High School Tigerettes advanced in the region semi-finals held at Vol-State on February 28th, 2011 in Gallatin. They defeated the Christ Presbyterian Academy by a score of 52-50 in the Region 5-AA game.

The Tigerettes came out firing to open the game.  A combination of Katie Reid and Kelsey Gregory pushed Macon out to a 5-0 lead to begin the contest.  Early foul trouble by Katelyn Bean led to Calamity Coley entering the game and scoring four points in the period. At the end of the first Macon led 11-5 over CPA.

Scoring in the second period heated up. Early three point shooting by Haley Harris propelled the Tigerettes a score of 21-11 which would mark their largest lead of the contest. However turnovers, a few misses, and some tenacity from the Lady Lions kept the contest close.  CPA sunk a big three pointer at the end of the first half to close the Macon lead. Score at half was Macon 28 CPA 25.

The Lady Lions simply would not quit. Offensive plays by Gregory and Coley combined with great defensive plays from Reid and Brooks kept Macon close. With 2:34 left in the third period Bean picked up her 4th foul. Terra Pryor came off the bench to give the Tigerettes some quality minutes. After three periods the game was tied at 40 with a great deal of physical play being allowed.

The end of the game was exciting. Following a defensive stop, Coley’s bucket and a beautiful assist from Kailyn Brooks to Reid pushed Macon out to a 44-40 lead.  However after some sloppy play, CPA was able to take their first lead of the contest at 45-44 with 4:24 to go in the game. With Bean fouling out with 1:33 to go and down 47-49, Haley Harris made a critical defensive steal. At this turning point of the contest, Macon benefited from scoring by Harris, Brooks and Gregory with another defensive steal by Brooks.  Gregory calmly iced the game with some free throws for a final score of Macon 52 CPA 50.

Scoring were Gregory 11 pts., Coley 13 pts., Harris 11 pts., Brooks 4 pts, Reid 8 pts, and Bean 2 pts. Pryor played but did not score. The Tigerettes were to play David Lipscomb in the Region 5-AA finals on Wednesday at Vol-State.
