Devilettes finally put Blaze away
Jan 22, 2007 12:00 am
Lebanon's Devilettes scored a 46-39 victory of District 7-AAA rival Blackman Friday at Campbell Brandon Gymnasium/Hester Gibbs Court.
The final period was almost the downfall for Lebanon as the Lady Blaze cut a 16-point deficit in half with 1:57 remaining in the contest to come to within a 43-35 score.
"We made some mistakes in the fourth quarter," Devilette coach Darian Brown said after his team improved to 8-14 overall and 4-4 in District 7-AAA play. "The girls aren't used to being in a position to put a game away. It's a role they haven't experienced much."
The Devilettes held a five-point lead heading into the locker room at the half up 17-12. Lebanon came out strong in the third and opened up a 10-point advantage.
"We came out strong in the beginning of the second half," Brown said. "We made a couple of changes defensively and took away their game plan."
Icelyn Elie fired in 16 points for Lebanon. Ebony Marshall and Jasmin Brooks each put in eight, Kim Ha had six, Crystal Howse and Kelsey Blackburn three apiece and London Elie two.
Blake Brown had 12 to lead the Lady Blaze.
The Devilettes travel to White County at 6:30 p.m. Tuesday.
