The speed and quickness of the Straughn Lady Tigers was too much for the Red Level Lady Tigers to overcome last night, as Straughn came away with a 27-9 victory.

Straughn jumped out front 7-0 in the first period thanks in part to a clutch 3-pointer from Chelsi Brooks. Straughn’s defense was ferocious in the first period, not allowing Red Level any easy opportunities.

In the second period it was more of the same from Straughn. Straughn kept making shots, and limited any chance that Red Level had of getting off an open look. After two periods Straughn was out front 17-2.

Defense continued to be the difference maker for Straughn, and they only allowed 2 points from Red Level in the third period. Straughn pulled away further 21-4.

Red Level managed their best period in the fourth, scoring 5 points, but it wasn’t enough to overcome the hot shooting Straughn Lady Tigers. Straughn held on for a 27-9 win.

Brooks led the Straughn Lady Tigers in with 8 points, and Sadie Crum added 6 points.

“We played OK,” Straughn head coach Scott Kinsaul said. “It’s all about learning at this age, and trying to build a program for the future. I was proud of the way they played.”

Natalie Feagin paced the Red Level Lady Tigers with 6 points.

“The biggest thing is we’ve got to get in and learn basketball,” Red Level head coach Allen Catrett said. “A lot of the girls have improved from where they were at last year, but we have to learn the fundamentals of basketball if we are going to win.”
