Things got interesting in the final quarter. Hannah Brown's layup gave CCHS a 47-33 advantage, but Brittany Brun converted one of two free throws to trigger a 9-0 run to slice the lead to 47-42 midway through the period.  Brown converted two free throws to stop CCHS' bleeding to make the score 49-42.

A trey by by Sammie Jo Wyatt started a 7-0 run which knotted the game at 49-49, but Capps' trey with 25 seconds left gave the Lady Jets the lead. SMHS got the ball back and worked the clock for a game-tying shot, but turned the ball over to the Lady Jets with seconds left in the game, allowing CCHS to run out the clock for the victory.

Sexton scored five points in a 10-0 Panther run to start the second half to give SMHS a 50-17 advantage, but a basket by Partridge sparked a 7-0 Jet run to slice the gap to 50-24.

Two free throws by Norman with 3:41 left in the third quarter keyed a 7-4 Panther spurt to raise the lead to 57-28 by quarter's end. SMHS was six of nine from the charity stripe.

Austin Helton opened the final quarter with a basket to give the Panthers a 59-28 lead, but the Jets converted some Panther turnovers into a 13-2 run to slice the lead to 61-41. Patridge had seven of the Jets' points.

    Most golfers would like to hit the ball further off the tee with the driver.  Distance may not be as important as accuracy off the tee, but it is very valuable. Longer, straighter drives make the game easier.
