Highland Edges Lady Tigers 30-29 In Defensive Battle

Marika Abbey scored just three points in the December 12th varsity girls basketball game, but she hit the biggest bucket of the contest with just 16 seconds left in the game to put Highland ahead for good. The Cougars escaped Memphis with a 30-29 victory in a defensive struggle.

After Melissa Cotton and Deidra Dochterman hit early jumpers, the lid closed on the basket for Scotland County. Highland had little better luck, as the tie remained knotted at 4-4 until Cotton made a free throw to make the score 5-4 after eight minutes of play.

Both teams continued to have trouble putting points on the board in the second period. SCR-I looked poised to take charge of the game after early scores by Kaela Cook and Trisha Harvey but the well ran dry allowing Highland to pull within 13-9 at halftime.

Kirsten Johnston and Jessica Bair hit back-to-back jumpers to start the third period as the Lady Tigers extended the lead to 17-9.

But Highland responded with a 6-0 run that was finally halted by a bucket in the paint from Cotton.

The Cougars took their first lead of the contest late in the third period but Bair scored late to make it 21-20 in favor of SCR-I heading into the final period.

Highland scored four quick points to start the fourth quarter forcing an SCR-I time-out at 6:43 to play.

Free throws by Valerie Oldham and Harvey kept Scotland County close. A three point play by Bair cut the deficit to 28-27 with 1:43 left in the game.

But Highland ran out much of the remaining clock before Abbey scored on a drive to the basket to make it 30-27 with just 16 ticks remaining on the clock.

Harvey hit a jumper with 5.6 seconds to play, trimming the lead to just one. SCR-I had two fouls to give, but got the clock stopped and actually had a final shot at a win after Highland missed a free throw, but Bair was forced to try a half-court heave as time expired in the 30-29 loss.

Bair led Scotland County with seven points. Harvey finished with six and Cotton added five points.
