The Mansfield Sr High Lady Tigers are never one to shy away from a top of the line high-pressure shooting spree but when it came to preparing for their match against the Waldron Lady Bulldogs, the Lady Tigers knew this would be no walk in the park. The game was intense from the starting tip-off to the final buzzer with both teams commanding only the best from one another in the “Battle for Scott County”.
With each step that Mansfield made, Waldron was always there to greet them. Not easily discouraged, the Lady Tigers held their own until the final push when they slowly began to lose their steam from the Tiger train causing them to take a 56-41 loss. Offensively, it was sophomore Sadie Roberts that commandeered the court netting 11 points. Hot on her heels was Mikayla Harrison with 10 points and Chloe Creekmore with nine. Also delivering to the Lady Tigers greatness was Makayla Strutton with four, Danielle Lillie with three, and Amber Elmore and Kiara Thomas each with two. This game puts Mansfield at 3-5 on the season and 0-2 in conference play.
Ready to make a big splash as they jump off into the Bill Frye Classic on Friday, December 27, the Sr Lady Tigers will go toe to toe against Arkoma at 6 p.m.
