Zero Field Goals in First Half Dooms Lady Tigers to 52-37 Loss to Palmyra

Coach Jaryt Hunziker and his Lady Tigers had to be questioning if there was a lid on their basket. Scotland County went 16 minutes without a field goal on Wednesday night in round two of the 37th annual Highland Tournament.

Palmyra was the benefactor of SCR-Iís frigid shooting performance. The Lady Panthers took advantage of the poor shooting by SCR-I to start the game with a 12-4 advantage after one period of play.

The lone points for SCR-I came on free throws by Melissa Cotton and Kaitlin Caldwell.

The second period was even worse for Scotland County. Betsey Kittleís two free throws were the lone scoring as the Lady Tigers went to the locker room down by 14 points.

But the two teams traded ends at halftime, and the new basket proved to be to the Lady Tigers liking.

Scotland County erupted for 23 points in the third period battling back to make a game of it.

Kittle connected on a three pointer and Ashley Tague knocked down a pair of shots from behind the arc to help fuel the onslaught. Cotton was a perfect 4-4 from the charity stripe and Kelsey Frazier added five points during the key run.

The huge rally seemed to sap Scotland County of its energy down the stretch. The Lady Tigers ran out of gas in the fourth period as Palmyra went on to post the 52-37 win.

Danielle Boulware led Palmyra (7-4) with 24 points on the evening.

Scotland County (7-2) was led in scoring by Cotton with 11 points. Tague finished with eight points, all coming in the third period, and Kittle and Frazier each contributed seven points.
