Schuyler County Spoils Senior Night For Lady Tigers

It was senior night at Scotland County R-I High School on Friday night, but it was a sophomore that got things rolling for the Lady Tigers in the teamís conference finale.

Scotland County fell behind 6-0 with all five seniors on the court to start the contest (the teamís sixth senior Betsey Kittle was on the bench in street clothes after fracturing a bone in her hand in Tuesdayís game). After Kelsey Frazier was forced to the bench with two quick fouls, Ashley Tague came off the bench and immediately sparked the offense.

The sophomore forward followed her own shot and scored on an offensive rebound to break the ice. She then stole the inbounds pass, and again cleaned up her own miss with an offensive rebound and a bucket. Tague knocked down a jumper to tie the game at 6-6 and again connected from the perimeter to keep the score even at 8-8.

Deidra Dochterman tied the game with a three pointer with 2:14 to play in the first period. But Schuyler County went on a 7-1 run closing out the quarter.

Valerie Oldham gave SCR-I a huge boost when she connected on her first three pointer of the season as the buzzer sounded with Scotland County trailing 18-15.

Kaitlin Caldwell opened the second period with a basket in the paint. She connected on one of two free throws to make the score 19-18.

But SCR-I was saddled with foul trouble for much of the first half, playing without Frazier, Oldham and Dochterman.

Melissa Cotton kept her squad close. She connected on a pair of three pointers. Her second shot from behind the arc tied the game at 26-26. The senior guard scored Scotland Countyís final eight points of the first half.

Stephanie March nailed a three pointer at the buzzer for Schuyler County to push the Rams ahead 32-28 at the intermission.

Dochterman and Cotton connected on three pointers for SCR-I in the third period but Schuyler County still maintained a 43-36 lead with just eight minutes to play.

Schuyler County scored the first 11 points of the fourth period to quickly put the game out of reach. The Lady Rams saw the bulge grow as large as 20 points before a late surge by SCR-I made the final score 62-28.

Scotland County fell to 13-10 on the year and 2-5 in the Tri-Rivers Conference. Melissa Cotton led SCR-I with 14 points.

Schuyler County improved to 13-10 behind 21 points from Lesa Ford. Kaitlin Stump added 16 points.
