BHS girls beat D-B, lose two

Despite losing two of its first three games this season during the Jefferson County Invitational last week, Bearden girls basketball head coach Jennifer Allen was pleased with her team’s performance.

“They played pretty well,” Allen said. “They’re still young and real inexperienced. We played some really good teams. Overall we didn’t do too bad.”

Allen said fast break opportunities, many finished off by senior guard Joy Spaulding, helped the Lady Bulldogs pull off a close 40-37 opening season win versus Kingsport Dobyns-Bennett.

“We pushed the ball down the court pretty well,” she said. “Joy Spaulding had ten points that game. Several of those were due to fast breaks ... several times she went to the free throw line and made free throws for us.”

The BHS girls dropped the next two games to Sevier County (67-36) and South Doyle (54-44).

Against South-Doyle, junior guard Nicole Austin led BHS with 14 points. For her solid play during the opening week, Austin was named TnBank Player of the Week by Allen.

“She shot the ball real well pretty much most of the week,” Allen said. “She’s one of our best scorers and one of our best shooters. She was a sophomore last year and doesn’t have a whole lot of varsity experience. She’s a starter this year and we look for her to score some points for us.”

After a District 4-AAA home game versus William Blount Tuesday (after press deadline), BHS travels to arch-rival Farragut Friday (6:30 tip-off).
