CORBIN — By Chris Parsons / Staff Writer

BARBOURVILLE — The Barbourville Lady Tigers improved to 17-9 on the season and 11-7 against 13th Region foes Thursday with a 78-62 win over Middlesboro.

Kelsey and Kara Erslan led the way for the Lady Tigers with 24 and 20 points, respectively, while Amber Mills added 19 in the win.

Barbourville took control early and was never threatened en route to the win. Lady Tigers’ head coach Andrea Hillard said she was pleased with here team’s play and called it the best “team game” the squad has played in some time.

“The game was a great step in the right direction,” Hillard said. “We played the best team ball that we have played in a while.”

After leading 24-16 at the end of the first quarter, Barbourville extended the gap to 43-29 at halftime. A 16-12 third quarter effort put the Lady Tigers on top 59-41 with one quarter to play in the game.

Middlesboro was able to outscore the Lady Tigers 21-19 in the fourth period, but Barbourville’s lead proved too big to overcome as they came away with the win.
