A solid first half performance wasn't enough to propel the DeKalb County High School Lady Tiger basketball team into the next round of the District 7-AA Tournament. The Lady Tigers had a seven-point lead at halftime in Thursday's play-in round game at Macon County, but a poor second half sent the DeKalb County girls packing, as the host Tigerettes rallied for a 62-46 victory.
Cynthia Woodward scored 16 first half points for the Lady Tigers, who held a 14-13 lead at the end of the first period, and opened up the advantage to seven points - at 31-24 - at the half. A 14-2 Macon County run to open the third period gave the host Tigerettes the lead for good. Macon out-scored DeKalb, 22-6, in the third period to go up, 46-37, at the end of the third period, and the Tigerettes closed out the game with a 16-9 edge in the fourth.
