Season-ending skid for Bearden girls

Bearden Lady Bulldogs head coach Nathan Hodges is finding out exactly how competitive District 4-AAA is. The Lady Bulldogs lost their fourth straight game Friday, Feb. 10, at home against South-Doyle 57-50.

“It’s tough every night in this district if you don’t make a couple free-throws or get some rebounds,” Hodges said. “[South Doyle] is great on the boards.”

Bearden, whose record fell to 12-14 overall entering the week while finishing 6-8 in the district, couldn’t find an answer for South-Doyle’s Galyon sisters.

Kinsey Galyon scored 24 points while her twin sister, Kelsey, added 15 to lead SDHS.

The Lady Bulldogs were led by Allysia Bailey’s 23 points. Kristen Osterman, Sarah Himmelreich, Sarah Canter and Mary Hirst had six apiece, and Rikki Sanders added three.

With 50 seconds remaining in the game, Bearden trailed 51-50.

After a missed opportunity on the offensive end, Bearden was forced to foul, sending South Doyle’s Kerri Nash to the line. After connecting on both free throws, Nash and the Lady Cherokees had a 53-50 lead with 26 seconds remaining.

Bearden ran the clock down to 9.6 seconds before calling two consecutive timeouts. After in-bounding the ball, another timeout was called at 8.9 seconds, giving Bearden ample time to design a play for the tie.

But the inbounds pass slipped through freshman post Hirst’s hands and Kinsey Galyon grabbed it and was fouled. She hit both free-throws to give SDHS a 55-50 lead with 7.1 seconds left.

WBHS 59 BHS 52

Bearden couldn’t rebound from an early 20-5 deficit to William Blount Tuesday, Feb. 7, and lost 59-52. Bailey led the Lady Bulldogs with 20. Himmelreich had 13, Hirst and Osterman had eight each, Canter two and Tymier Williams one.
