Southern Fulton was led by Jessie Covalt with 17 points, followed by Kierstyn Morton with 8. Jessie Covalt also has 10 rebounds, earning her first double-double of the season. Drew Gordon grabbed 9 boards. Lindsey Hollenshead led in assists with 4. Southern Fulton Coach Meagan Mellott said, ” Tussey played a great game and really fought back. We unfortunately lost momentum and just struggled to get it back. A poor shooting night from the foul line hurt us late in the game (10/21). We’ve got to be able to hit those foul shots and focus to stay in tight games against good teams. We didn’t do that tonight.” The Lady Indians will compete in the Hancock Christmas Tournament next Friday and Saturday opening on Friday evening with North Hagerstown High School.

Southern Huntingdon 45 Forbes Road 25

Quincy McMath had 8 points and Mara Broadwater had 5 points and 14 rebounds. Forbes Coach Jamie Gelvin commented, “Southern played a good game and shot the ball well.  The three ball killed us tonight. We both hit ten two point baskets, but when they make six threes and we don’t make any, it’s impossible to win.” The Lady Cardinals will next host East Juniata on December 29.
