Station Camp snapped the DCHS Lady Tigers’ nine game winning streak today (Friday) during the semi-finals of the Smokey Mountain Classic at Gatlinburg.
Undersized and shooting woes plagued DeKalb County in the 43-36 loss.
The first half was mostly back and forth with both teams putting up a strong defensive effort. The Lady Tigers were outscored 12-9 in the 1st quarter and found themselves down 21-17 at the half.
In the 3rd quarter the Lady Tigers’ offense came to life resulting in a 13-8 run to pull ahead 30-29 going into the 4th quarter. In the final period the DC offense hit the skids scoring only 6 points and the Lady Tigers lost 43-36.
Lydia Brown led the Lady Tigers in scoring with 13 followed by Mya Ruch, Maddison Parsley, and Kadee Ferrell each with 6, Emme Colwell 3, and Joni Robinson 2 .
With the loss, DeKalb County will compete for 3rd place in the consolation game Saturday at 10:00 a.m. (Eastern time) against the loser of the Gatlinburg Pittman- Casey County, Kentucky game.
The Lady Tigers are 11-3 on the year.
