Lady Tigers Light Up LaPlata In 47-33 Win

The Scotland County girls basketball team lit it up on offense in the first quarter to build a huge lead en route to a 47-33 victory over LaPlata in the opening round of the Novinger Tournament on November 29th.

Scotland Countys press took its toll on the Bulldogs. Angue Bulen scored on the fastbreak and followed it up with a three point play on the next possession to make the score 12-3 less than three minutes into the contest. Kirsten Johnston got into the scoring act with a jumper from the wing and a three pointer from the top of the key.

The Lady Tigers forced several LaPlata turnovers and took advantage of the easy scoring opportunities to build a 17-5 first period lead.

The lead grew to 21-5 to open the second period after buckets from Bulen and Johnston.

The offense slowed down a bit to close out the second period but SCR-I still led 30-11 at the break.

SCR-I got off to a slow start in the third period, forcing coach Kelli Swearingen to send all five starters to the bench where she implored them to play like they were behind.

We just dont have that killer instinct right now, she said. The girls dont know when to go and when to stop, but were learning. The third quarter isnt a time when you want to slow down and let the other team back into the game.

LaPlata outscored SCR-I 10-7 in the third period to cut the deficit to 37-21.

The margin went to 20 points in the opening minute of the fourth quarter after a layup by Jamie Fuller and a put back by Bulen off an offensive rebound.

LaPlata scored eight straight points before Bulen responded with two more buckets to put the game away for the Lady Tigers.

The senior center led SCR-I with a game-high 15 points and is averaging double figures in both scoring and rebounds early in the year.

We got another solid game from Angie tonight, Swearingen said. We knew she was going to be our key rebounder, but the points have been a little unexpected. Obviously well take it. Its great to have that scoring threat in the paint.

Johnston finished with 12 points while Ali Fromm pitched in with 10 points despite being under the weather.

SCR-I moves to 2-0 on the season and advances to play the #3-seeded Novinger Wildcats in the semifinals.
