Lady Blue Devils on fire
By Andrew Alexander
The Lady Blue Devils' hot streak continued in Adamsville last Thursday when Michie's girls picked up their 12th straight win with a 21-point victory over the Junior Lady Cardinals.
“The girls played hard. Everyone got to play, and that’s always a good experience for younger players,” said Michie Head Coach Andrea Whitten. “Proud of the players and the season so far, but want to continue working hard til the end.”
Michie began the game on a 9-0 run before Adamsville hit a 3-pointer late in the first quarter. The Lady Blue Devils' stingy defense did not relent in the second quarter, and they went into halftime with a 15-3 lead.
The Lady Cardinals' scoring drought ended in the third quarter, but they still struggled to get shots off against the pesky Michie defenders.
Down 21-5, Adamsville opened the final quarter with a couple quick baskets, but the Lady Blue Devils ended the game on a 9-0 run and moved to 12-0 overall and 6-0 in the county.
“We had too many turnovers to play with one of the best teams in the county,” said AJHS Head Coach Rebecca Ashe. “We must work hard and play our very best over last three games. Hopefully we can make a run during the county tournament.”
Next up on the schedule for the 2-6 Lady Cards is a road trip to Hardin County Thursday night.
The undefeated Lady Blue Devils looked to get their second win over Jackson St. Mary's at home last Monday.
