Staying hot, BHS girls whip LC; boys win


The Bearden girls (18-4, 11-1) took two overtimes to knock off the Lenoir City (9-12, 5-7) 56-52 in a tense and tight District 4-AAA game that had enough drama for two games, while the Bulldogs (19-7, 9-3) jumped to a 37-21 halftime lead over the Panthers (12-9, 7-5) and never took a backwards glance en route to a 72-46 victory.

Erin Walsh scored 20 points and Jai-Jai McLaughlin added 19 as the Bearden girls struggled to get past Lenoir City’s girls aggregation.

The Lady Bulldogs trailed by nine in the second quarter by eight in the third, before turning up the defensive heat and rallying to take the lead on a Walsh three.

Walsh had three three-point goals to give the Lady Bulldogs a spark down the stretch.


Walsh had a three in the second overtime to break a 50-50 tie and added two free throws to set the final margin at 56-52.

“I went to the line with confidence,” Walsh said of her two key free throws. “My team encouraged me. We had been shooting a lot of free throws. Twenty points was a high mark for me.”

Kiki Dwight added 10 points to give the Lady Bulldogs a potent scoring trifecta.

Drew Standifer scored 22 points (including 12-of-12 free throws) to pace the Bulldogs boys’ effort. “I think that’s the first time I hit 100 percent. ... We moved the ball, and our defense was better on the threes,” Standifer said.

Robert Moon added 13 points in an exceptional performance.

“This was probably my best game offensively,” Moon said. “I’ve had a couple of better defensive games. I shouldn’t have had as many turnovers.”
