Lady Tigers Knock Off North Shelby 46-34 in Semifinals

Valerie Oldham scored 10 of Scotland Countys first 15 points and the Lady Tigers used a big second half to outlast the host in the consolation semifinals of the North Shelby Tournament on January 16th.

Oldham scored the games first four points and Melissa Cotton made a three pointer to put the Lady Tigers on top 7-2. The Lady Raiders rallied to regain the lead before a bucket by Oldham made it 9-8 in favor of SCR-I to close the first period.

The junior forward continued her strong performance in the second period. Her back-to-back buckets kept the score knotted at 15 midway through the quarter. Oldhams two free throws closed out the first half with the Lady Tigers on top 20-19.

Scotland County gained some breathing room in the third period. Kirsten Johnston made one of two free throws on three straight possessions before Melissa Cotton drilled a three pointer to close the third period with SCR-I leading 30-24.

The lead grew to double digits early in the fourth quarter after two free throws by Kelsey Frazier. But struggles at the charity stripe allowed North Shelby to trim the deficit to 35-32 before Johnston hit a jumper from the wing.

Melissa Cotton made three of four free throws as the clock dropped below one minute with Scotland County ahead 40-32. Oldham and Cheyenne Ward added late buckets and Betsy Kittle nailed a pair of free throws to secure the 46-34 victory.

Oldham finished with 16 points and 12 rebounds to lead Scotland County (5-8). Cotton pitched in with 11 points and Johnston added eight.
