McKENZIE (October 29) — McKenzie played host to Paris Inman Middle School and came away with a split. The Lady Rebels won while the Rebels suffered their second loss on the season.
Lady Rebels 45, Lady Bulldogs 40
The girls contest wasn’t quite as close as the score indicates. McKenzie jumped out to an 8-2 lead in the first quarter before Inman got some points and made it a 9-6 contest at the end of the first in favor of MMS. The two teams battled in the second quarter with Inman outscoring McKenzie and tying up the game 19-19 by halftime.
MMS came out hot in the third quarter scoring nine unanswered points before Inman scored then added eight more unanswered points to lead 36-21 at the end of three quarters. Despite both teams subbing in a lot of players in the fourth period, Inman’s ladies decided they weren’t going away quietly and made a game out of it outscoring McKenzie to close the score to the final 45-40 at the end.
Briley Auvenshine led MMS with 19 points including a pair of three-pointers. Savannah Davis was also in double digits with 11 points including one three-pointer. Katie Prather added 9 points including a pair of three-pointers. Kylie Reynolds and Mikaela Reynolds had 4 and 2 points respectively for the Lady Rebels.
Inman was led in scoring by Harlee Veazey with 13 points followed by Mara Kate Coley with 9 points. Leilana Taylor and Heaven Bowen added 8 points and 6 points respectively while Taya Russell chipped in 4 points for Inman.
Bulldogs 58, Rebels 21
The Rebels ran into a hot-shooting Inman team who also played full court defense which caused a bad night for MMS. Inman doubled up the Rebels in the opening period leading 12-6 after one period. The second period was nothing short of a disaster for MMS as they were outscored 28-4 including giving up four back-to-back three pointers to trail 40-10 at the half.
Both teams played everyone on their benches in the third and fourth periods. McKenzie continued to struggle offensively managing only 11 points in the second half to eventually fall 58-21.
The Lady Rebels remain unbeaten with a 7-0 record while the Rebels fall to 5-2 on the season.
