The Morgan County High School (MCHS) Varsity Lady Dogs brought home the win in their game against East Jackson last week with a final score of 61-31.
The Lady Dogs played a solid game where they found their groove in the second half.
“We played excellent in the second half of the game,” said Head Coach Josh Reeves.
The Morgan County Lady Dogs had been preparing for East Jackson’s reputation as a solid team.
“East Jackson has a solid team and they are very well coached, but we really dominated on the defensive end in the second half,” said Reeves.
Top scorers for the game were Pumpkin Brown with 21 points and Tatyana Davis with 10.
Their combined 31 points were all scored in the second half. “Jatariea Bryant and Salina Fortunè played great at center for us again as well,” said Reeves.
The Lady Dogs are pleased with the win but know there is still work to be done.
They will focus on defense as they travel to Jackson County on Friday, Jan. 23 immediately followed by Buford on Saturday, Jan 24.
“To be more successful, we have to get after it harder on defense and take care of the ball and handle pressure when it comes. That is what gets you deep into the playoffs whether it is region or state,” said Reeves.
