BHS girls drop two

The Bearden Lady Bulldogs dropped its second game of the week after being defeated on their home court by Sevier County 46-43 Friday, Feb. 3.

The loss gives Bearden a 12-12 overall record entering the week and drops its District 4-AAA record to 6-6.

After BHS junior point guard Allysia Bailey pulled the Lady Bulldogs within one point, 44-43 with 26.6 second remaining in the game, Sevier County was sent to the free throw line immediately after the inbounds pass. After Sevier County missed both free throws, Bailey had one last chance to win the game for Bearden, but her layout attempt rimmed out with seven seconds left.

“I thought we played well,” BHS head coach Nathan Hodges said. “Sevier County has gotten a lot better ... both teams played well and they did exactly what I asked them to do in end-of-game situations. We got the shot, it just didn’t go in. But that’s basketball.”

Kristen Osterman finished with seven points. Her clutch three-point basket with just under two minutes remaining gave BHS the temporary 41-40 lead.

“Kristen Osterman is always a really good shooter in practice ... but she is finally starting to get the big shot in big games,” the coach said. “She has really stepped up for us lately.”

Bailey and Jenna Maynard paced the BHS offense with nine points each. Sarah Himmelreich had eight, Rikki Sanders and Mary Hirst four apiece, and Sarah Canter two.

Austin East 62 - Bearden 46

The speed and intensity of the Austin East Lady Roadrunners was too much for BHS to handle as they were defeated 62-46 Tuesday, Jan. 31 at AEHS.

Bailey led the BHS scoring with 14, Sanders had 13, Hirst and Osterman six each, Himmelreich four, Amity Mulvey two, and Canter one.
