Rallying from a 4-point deficit in the fourth quarter, the Bryant White Lady Hornets eighth grade team of Bryant Middle School rallied for a 20-16 win over the Russellville Lady Whirlwinds Monday night.
The victory concluded the team’s season. The Lady Hornets finished 9-7 with three wins in their last four games.
Meagan Chism hit a 3-pointer to put Bryant White ahead with about two minutes left in the game.
“From that point forward, we controlled the game,” said Lady Hornets coach Caleb Harper. “With under a minute to go, we hit three free throws to seal the game.
“The whole game was pretty much back and forth,” he added.
Chism led Bryant White with 13 points. Allison Steen scored 4 and Kalia Walker 3.
“I am very proud of the way our team battled to win,” Harper stated. “We played pretty good defense in the fourth quarter and finally got enough offensive production to get momentum to seal the game.”
