Shooting Woes Can't Keep Lady Tigers From Beating Marceline

A slow start to the season on offense has not prevented Scotland County from opening the year with a 2-1 record after the Lady Tigers defeated Marceline 48-43 to bring home the team's first road win.

SCR-I had its worst shooting performance of the year, hitting just 28 percent of its shots but improvement on defense and especially in rebounding helped the Lady Tigers bring home the win.

"We improved dramatically on the glass," said Coach Andrea Dabney. "In the first two games we struggled rebounding but we limited Marceline on the offensive glass and ended the game even in rebounds with them. That's really good considering we missed a lot of shots that turned into defensive rebounds for them."

SCR-I opened the game with a 13-10 lead in the first period. Jessie Cotton and Meagan Fromm each hit three pointers while Brandi Mallett had a pair of scores in the paint.

Fromm took over in the second period, scoring 11 points to help offset a run by Marceline, which tied the game at 28-28 at halftime.

Neither team got much going on offense in quarter number three. Ali Fromm had four of the Lady Tigers seven points in the period. However the defense did the job as well, allowing the Lady Tigers to pull ahead 35-34.

She nailed a three pointer to start the fourth quarter and get things rolling for Scotland County. Valerie Crawford did the rest. The sophomore came off the bench and put up seven points down the stretch as the Lady Tigers pulled away to the 48-43 victory.

Meagan Fromm led the way for Scotland County with 17 points. Ali Fromm finished with 11 points while Crawford had a season-high nine points. The team improved to 2-1 with the win heading into the Putnam County Tournament this week.
