“We played a good game. This same Lawrence County team beat us 40 points last year.”
Ashley Dunstan led the scoring for the Lady Golden Tigers, netting 16 points in the first half and finishing the game with 22 points.
Other players on the scoreboard for the Tigers included Megan Brockway with five points, Jakari Suggs and Victoria Jackson with four points each, and Peyton Hester with two points.
