The MTCS Lady Cougars had a shot to win it at the buzzer, but it was not to be as they lost to Battle Ground Academy 46-44 in their first district contest of the season. BGA led 25-22 at halftime.
The Lady Cougars were down 40-31 at the end of the third quarter but mounted a great comeback in the fourth quarter that came up just short.
We were led in scoring by Ellie Shirley with 19 points (four 3’s). Sydney Cooper had 10, Amaria Gillispie had 7 (one 3), Niya Hardison had 4, Sarah Wisniowski had 2, and Reagan Atkinson had 2.
The Lady Cougars will return to action this Saturday, Dec. 8 as they travel to Franklin Road Academy for a 3:00 pm start.
