Lady Cards down rivals
By BARRY BURLESON
The Potts Camp Lady Cardinals knocked off a rival and improved to 2-0 in Region 2-2A last week.
The Lady Cardinals, playing at home, got 26 points from Tenesha Woods in a 62-52 win over Hickory Flat Tuesday night, Jan. 3.
“We were rolling and then we got complacent,” coach Tana Miller said. “A win is a win, and we’re playing as a team. We just have to continue to improve.”
Potts Camp led 13-6 after one quarter and 30-20 at the half. But Hickory Flat sliced into the margin in the second half before the Lady Cards regained the momentum for the 10-point victory.
Jessica Peterson and Brittany Pitts added 13 and 12 points, respectively, for Potts Camp.
Coach Miller said Woods and Peterson also did a “good job on the boards.”
For Hickory Flat, Kadejar Moore had 22 and Amber Thompson 12.
In the nightcap, the Potts Camp boys fell 64-40 to the Rebels.
Hickory Flat took command from the tip. The visiting team was up 26-8 at halftime.
Top scorer for the Cardinals was Jarvis Jones with 12.
Leading the Rebels in the win were Trey Reed with 22 and Anthony Tucker with 13.
The Lady Cards picked up another big win over another neighboring rival Friday, this one on the road. They beat the Ashland Lady Blue Devils 67-63 in overtime.
Woods was on fire again. She scored 31. Plus, she grabbed 11 rebounds.
“She had a huge night,” said Miller, whose squad improved to 10-9 overall. “She really came through for us.”
The Potts Camp girls were up 32-27 at the half. Ashland outscored them 17-9 in the fourth to knot the game at 56 and send it to overtime. The Lady Cards won the extra period, 11-6.
“We had a rebounding lapse in the fourth quarter, Miller said. “They (the Lady Devils) were able to convert rebounds into points.”
Zana Davis added 10 points for Potts Camp.
“We played hard,” Miller said. “To go to Ashland and win, that’s big for us. It was a good contest between two teams who would not give up.”
For Ashland, Dametris Anderson had 15 points and Alontra Tucker 11.
The Potts Camp boys dropped a 75-43 decision to the Blue Devils.
They trailed 19-10 after one quarter, 40-23 at the half and 49-35 following three periods.
Lajohn Curry’s 13 points were tops for the Cards.
Ashland was led by Darius Dukes with 25.
