BHS girls streaking

After beating Sevier County 61-52 Friday, Feb. 2, the Bearden Lady Bulldogs are enjoying a seven-game winning streak.

Led by Allysia Bailey’s game-high 23 points, Bearden (17-7 overall and 9-3 in 4-AAA entering the week) bounced back after a rough third quarter that saw homestanding SCHS outscore them 17-6 to force a 45-45 tie heading into the final quarter.

“I just challenged them in the break inbetween quarters we needed all five players on the floor playing defense at a high level every single possession,” Bearden head coach Nathan Hodges said. “We had to keep up our intensity every possession and they stepped up to the challenge and did that. And we were able to pull it out in the end.”

Mary Hirst added 14 points for BHS while Sarah Canter and Rikki Sanders had eight apiece. Tiffany Johnson had five and Jenna Maynard rounded out the scoring with three.

Heading into the closing weeks of the season, Hodges is pleased with how his team is playing but he wants to see his team become more consistent defensively.

“We played alright on the offensive end but I thought defensively at times we weren’t as focused as we needed to be,” Hodges said. “We are trying to build and get better and better to peak during tournament time. I’m just looking for us to play consistent and have that intensity consistently on defense, so when it comes tournament time we can really shut people down as well as score.”

BHS 64 WEST 55

The Lady Bulldogs continued its hot streak against West with a 64-55 win Tuesday, Jan. 30, on the road.

Hirst led Bearden with 23 points. Others scoring for the Lady Bulldogs were Sanders with 13, Bailey eight, Johnson six, Maynard five, Canter four, Mercedes Cotner three and Ellen Smith two.
