West Point Girls Thanksgiving Classic
At Jim Boyd Gymnasium:
West Morgan 19 12 3 13 - 47 (2-2)
Cold Springs 23 6 6 8 - 43 (3-3)
FLASH NOTES: Shooting the three has been a trademark for the Lady Eagles for a very long time.
It started well Wednesday evening with seven made treys in the opening quarter and a slim 23-19 lead on West Morgan.
Then the shooting started to fade, with only two in the second period and none in the second half.
Cold Springs' offense could not click through each quarter, which prevented them of a 3-1 finish in the tournament. The Lady Eagles did not have center Elizabeth Hill for the game due to a prior commitment.
The first two-point field goal for the Lady Eagles came early in the third on a drive to the hoop by PG Toni West.
Cold Springs led 35-34 entering the final stanza and was not able to maintain the lead. Tamriya Young scored back to back treys for West Morgan, putting them up 43-36 with 4:14 to play.
It looked a little bleak for the Lady Eagles when they were down 45-38 at the 1:03 mark on a basket by West Morgan's Bree Evans.
However, Tammy West's squad had some fight left in them, narrowing it to 45-43 on a Camryn Crider field goal with 0:12 left.
But the chance for victory was put away with four seconds when Lindsay Goodwin scored twice from the line to make it a four-point lead as time ran out.
Goodwin got 15 points in the victory, with Young scoring 14 and Bailey Parrish 11.
Crider stood out shooting well in the loss, scoring 21 points, West added 14 with Neely Ellison netting six and Aubrey Negron two.
