Last Second Shot Sinks Lady Tigers

Scotland County was seconds away from bringing home the third place trophy in the North Shelby Tournament Saturday night. But those few ticks left on the clock were all it took for LaPlata to take the ball nearly the length of the court to score at the buzzer and sneak away with a 41-39 victory over the Lady Tigers.

SCR-I jumped out to a 9-5 lead in the first period as Ali Fromm put up seven points during an early spurt.

Scotland County put the clamps on LaPlataís leading scorer, Ashley Baker. The Bulldogsí forward was scoreless in the first period and held to just 13 points on the night. She had to work for those points, making seven of eight free throws on the night.

Coach Kelli Swearingen was pleased with her teamís defensive performance. ďI think we did a good job containing Baker,Ē she said.

Miranda Travis finished off a solid second period for LaPlata with six points to cut the SCR-I lead to 20-19.

SCR-I clung to a 31-29 advantage after three periods and had the game tied down the stretch before LaPlata hit the buzzer beater.

Fromm continued her solid play in the tournament, topping off the week with a 22-point performance.

ďAli played well all week for us, so I was glad that she made the all-tournament team,Ē Swearingen said.

Rebecca Consbrock scored a season-high 10 points.

ďShe stepped up tonight and shot the ball the way I thought she could,Ē Swearingen said. ďHopefully this will be a confidence builder for her.Ē

But the team missed senior point guard Jessie Cotton, the teamís second leading scorer.

The rest of the team combined for just seven points to go with Fromm and Consbrockís 32.

Baker led LaPlata with 13 points and Travis finished with 12 points.

The defeat sends SCR-I back to the .500 mark at 8-8 on the year.

In the championship game it was Brashear besting North Shelby 58-36.
