Published 12:01 am Saturday, January 18, 2014

Red Level outscored W.S. Neal 20-4 in the fourth period as the Lady Tigers beat the Lady Eagles 43-33 in regular-season action Friday night.

Throughout last night’s game, RLS trailed to WSN by single digits.

WSN led 12-8 after the first period, 20-15 at halftime and 29-23 after the third period.

RLS coach Allen Catrett said his team’s fourth period effort is what he wants to see from them for the entire game.

“We had a good fourth quarter,” Catrett said. “I’m proud of the girls for their effort.”

Shelby Holley led RLS with 16 points and 10 rebounds for a double-double. Kayla Hanson had 21 points.

The exact opposite took place in varsity boys action for Red Level.

The Tigers led 18-4 after the first period and 34-20 at halftime. They held a 45-43 advantage going into the fourth, but the Eagles outscored RLS 12-6 in the fourth to win 55-51.

RLS started the game on a 16-0 run.

“We got in foul trouble,” Catrett said was one of the reasons why the Eagles scored 26 points in the second period. “Our nemesis all year long has been the fourth quarter.”

Jeffrey Purdue led RLS with 13 points. William Crawford had 10.

In B-team action, the Eagles won 29-20.

WSN led 7-3 after the first period, 19-5 at halftime and 22-8 after the third period.

Red Level will be back in action on Tuesday at home against Brantley in Class 1A, Area 3 action.

Kinston boys 59, Pleasant Home boys 55

Pleasant Home got off to a great start in the first period, but started slipping defensively, Eagles coach Bradley Stephens said.

“They ended up making a run in the second quarter,” Stephens said. “They went up at the half, and we made a run back on them in the foruth quarter, but it wasn’t enough.”

PHS didn’t do so well from the free throw line, going 3-for-17.

Troy Fantroy led PHS with 24 points and 10 rebounds.

PHS visits Florala in area action on Tuesday.

Pleasant Home girls 41, Kinston girls 24

Pleasant Home’s Ashley Williamson scored 19 points to help lead the Lady Eagles to a 41-24 area win over Kinston last night.

Cassidy Godwin had 7 rebounds; Brianna Dozier paced PHS with 7 rebounds and 7 steals.

PHS coach Jerry Davis said the girls got in foul trouble, and it wasn’t pretty at times.

“We got to do some things we haven’t done in a while,” Davis said about running certain schemes. “We got to play some girls in major time who hadn’t been there.”

With the win, the Lady Eagles improve to 13-6 on the season and are guaranteed a better seed than No. 4 going into Class 1A, Area 2 tournament play.
