Three District games for Macon

This past week the basketball teams from Macon County had three district games. Two against Station Camp and one against Portland.

On Monday Jan 29 a make-up game at Station Camp had been rescheduled. In District 9-3A the Tigerettes and Lady Bisons sit at 1-2 in the standings. The Tigerettes had a terrible first quarter and fell behind and just couldn’t climb out of the hole.

The Tigerettes suffered their first district loss by a score of 47-44. This would put both in a tie for 1st for the moment.

The boys seem to be playing better ball but just can’t put it all together. They too fell behind early and by a lot. The Bisons are the #1 team in 9-3A and they put it on the Tigers 66-37.

On Tuesday Jan 30 Station Camp would make the return trip to Macon County. This time the Tigerettes would weather the first quarter and stay close till halftime, trailing 17-20.

The Tigerettes would hang close until a series of fouls, including a technical, midway through the third period would break the game open. Macon would build a seven point lead and hold that margin for the rest of the contest. The Tigerettes would go on to win 51-42.

Scoring in this contest was: Laityn Kirby 17, Natalie Green 10, Katie Jo Shockley 8, Kaydence Walrond 7, Kaylee Slayton 6, and Sheridan Ellis 3.

Now from the performance from the previous night everyone thought the boys game would be a blow-out again. The Bisons led 18-6 after eight minutes and 24-15 at the break.

Early in the third period the Bisons would balloon their lead to 15 points. Then the Tigers caught fire. Macon would play inspired ball and come back and tie the game with less than 30 seconds in regulation. However Station Camp would calmly come down the court and hit a three point shot with six seconds left to take the win. Final score Station Camp 47 Macon 44.

Scoring in this game was: Cason Gregory 23, John Krantz 10, Braylon Flowers 4, Brady Driver 4, and Dalton Hudson 3. McKade Mix and Braylon Marshall would both play but not score.

Macon ended the week hosting Portland. The Tigerettes grabbed the lead and held serve for the entire contest. Natalie Green had a big night posting her season high scoring 24 points. The Tigerettes win their fifth district game by a score of 47-28. This put the Tigerettes back on top in 9-3A with a record of 5-1 with two district games left on the schedule.

The boys once again just can’t seem to get over the hump. They kept it close but never could get the lead. They lost by a score of 31-39.

This week Macon will travel to Westmoreland on Feb 6th then come home for Senior Night against Clay County on Feb 8th before closing out the week traveling to White House on Feb 9th. First game tip each night is scheduled for 6 pm.
