SCR-I Gives State Ranked South Shelby a Scare

State ranked South Shelby got a scare in front of the home fans as Scotland County led for three quarters of play before the Lady Birds rallied late to prevail 41-39 on January 13th.

That would have been a big win for this program, said coach Jaryt Hunziker. We nearly knocked off a state ranked team in Class 3 on their court.

Scotland County looked poised to do just that. The Lady Tigers got off to a fast start. Three pointers by Deidra Dochterman and Melissa Cotton allowed SCR-I to take a 12-11 lead at the end of the first period.

Cotton nailed another three pointer and Ashley Tague had six second quarter points as Scotland County maintained a 27-25 advantage at the break.

South Shelby stayed close courtesy of a huge free throw advantage. The Lady Birds attempted 18 free throws on the night compared to just five by SCR-I.

The third period was dead even as both squads scored eight points. SCR-I spread the ball around offense, getting buckets from Tague, Kaitlin Caldwell, Betsey Kittle and Kelsey Frazier.

But the offense dried up in the fourth period. The Lady Tigers managed just four points in the games final eight minutes. South Shelby turned to 61 center Jenna Mueller down the stretch. The junior scored six of her game-high 17 points in the games final minutes as South Shelby rallied for the 41-39 win.

Mueller finished with 19 points and 18 rebounds to lead South Shelby (6-1). Cotton topped Scotland County (8-4) with 12 points on the night. Tague finished with eight points.
