After two attempts to play the doubleheader were called due to weather conditions, the Scotland County Tigers and Milan Wildcats finally met on the basketball hardwood on Thursday night.
The girls game saw the Lady 'Cats do well in getting to the free throw line, and converting, but struggle with its half-court offense, as the Lady Tigers took a 43-31 win. Milan had only five made field goals in the game, with 21 points scored from the charity line.
Chelsea Wood had 12 points (10 in the second half) to pace Scotland County, with Calesse Bair scoring nine points. Milan had seven points from Kaylee Michael and five points each from Kyley Doak and Cheyanne Long.
The Milan boys saw an 11-7 lead after one quarter slowly disappear, with the Tigers taking a 25-19 halftime lead, a 42-30 lead after three quarters, and blowing out the Wildcats in the fourth, in a 66-37 road win.
Bailey Johnston led Scotland County with 15 points, with Cordie Kigar scoring 12, and Lucas Howard nine. Milan had 16 points from Holden Stallbaumer and nine from Wyatt Bohle.
The doubleheader was played despite air temperatures outside "The Den" in single digits. Scotland County was given the option on whether or not to travel for the games, and chose to play. The teams will rematch on Wednesday, February 19th in Memphis.
Thursday night's doubleheader was broadcast on Hot Country Z 101.7 and on the worldwide web at www.kgozfm.com.
