Early start, run key Lady ‘Dores

Lafayette’s youth and inexperience, concerns of coach Amy Sutton heading into the season, looked more like a well seasoned unit Monday night in the opener of the MHSAA Class 4A playoffs.

Lady ‘Dores come up short for 2-4A title

ECRU — The Lafayette girls basketball team’s gameplan against North Pontotoc’s 6-foot-3 center Chelsea Mabry worked well in Friday’s District 2-4A Division Tournament championship game at North Pontotoc gym.

Amongst double teams most of the game, Mabry managed to put up 11 points on the night, but it was her teammates who ultimately secured a 56-49 win for the No. 1 seed Lady Vikings over the No. 3 seed Lady ‘Dores.

The victory not only improved the Lady Commodores to 12-10 overall, but advanced them to tonight’s 2-4A title game against host North Pontotoc and earned them a home game in the first round of the MHSAA Class 4A playoffs Monday night.

Lafayette’s matchup with the Coffeeville Lady Pirates Saturday afternoon in the “O” Town Showdown came down to defense and the play of junior guard Janae Westbrook. With Coffeeville heating up from deep late in the contest, some late-game heroics from Westbrook on offense and a couple of key stops on defense led to a 62-53 win for the Lady Commodores. (December 31, 2012, Page 7)
