CARTHAGE -- Doubling up Carthage in the second quarter came in handy down the stretch in Tyler Grace Community's 46-41 win Tuesday.

The Lady Cougars (6-3) broke free of the Lady Dawgs (6-2) in the final minutes of the first half for a 16-8 win in that period and a 30-20 advantage at the break.

Carthage won the second half by a slim margin, but it never could surmount the full Grace lead.

Jordan Tauscher scored a team-best 15 points for the winning side. Addie Daughtry chipped in 13 pounds to round out players in double digits.

Grace has a long road trip to look forward to this weekend. It will be part of the Geronimo-Navarro Tournament field in Seguin with opening games Thursday against El Paso Americas and Lockhart.

Carthage will try to rebound Friday at the Spring Hill Tournament.

 

Henderson Rolls Marshall

HENDERSON -- Three Lady Lions in double digits were enough to thwart a 19-point effort from LaJaccie Tuck in a 63-45 victory.

Desitny Roquemore and Tomariyah Dixon each scored 19 points in the victory, and Jaclyn Garrett added 10 more points. Resha Hall got close to double digits as well with nine points.

Bullard Downs Lindale

LINDALE -- Bullard got the usual production out of its usual key players, but the Lady Panthers' defense is really what did Lindale in toward a 57-41 decision at the Lady Eagles' gym.

Bullard held Lindale to two points in the second quarter after a tight opening period. That allowed the Lady Panthers to extend a 17-13 edge to double digits at the break.

Sydney Foster scored a game-best 22 points, but Hannah Lloyd had arguably the most impressive night with six made 3-pointers for 18 of her 19 points in the game.

Allie Kirgan reached double digits as well with 10 points.

Alishia Kiser led Lindale in defeat. She scored 12 points.

The Lady Panthers will travel about a half-mile for their next games. They'll face Kerens and Corsicana Mildred on Thursday in Brook Hill's forthcoming tournament.

Lindale also will be in action Thursday to be part of the Winnsboro Tournament field.
