No team led by more than 7 in the contest as it was back and forth at a frantic pace. Alexis Welch had a key rebound on a missed free throw by the Lady Trojans to take the lead from one to three with under 30 seconds to play. She spun on her girl and got position for the put back which really sealed the potential upset from actually happening. Brianna Beamer had a solid return to the floor with 8 pts and 4 assists, followed by some long threes vs their zone from Emma Angel.

After a knock down drag out with North Shelby on Friday Night the team turned around and played Harrisburg on Saturday in another very physical contest that was close at the end. The Lady Trojans came out on fire taking a ten point lead early in the first quarter. Harrisburg fought back into the game getting it to a one possession lead several times in the second half even taking the lead late. Both the team’s last two wins are over solid programs that are going to win a lot of games this season.
