Lady Jackets fall

CORBIN — By Chris Parsons / Staff Writer

LYNN CAMP — Monday’s border rivalry between Williamsburg and Jellico in the Bowman Invitational Classic went down to the wire as the Lady Devils held on for the 42-40 win.

Williamsburg’s Tarrah Davis led all scorers with 24 points, but it wasn’t enough to give Andrea Ellis’ team the win. Afterward, she said her team’s shooting was the difference in the long run.

Williamsburg only managed one field goal in the second quarter as they went one-for-10 in the period and six-of-22 in the first half to trail 19-18 at the break.

“They came out in the second half and outhustled us for a while,” Ellis said. “We didn’t play too well in the second quarter and only scored one basket and a couple free throws.

“Jellico played a good game, but we really beat ourselves that game,” she added. “When you play like that on offense, you really aren’t going to beat many teams.”

After leading at halftime, Jellico managed to stretch the lead to 33-28 as the fourth quarter got underway.

Williamsburg opened the final period with a 8-0 run, which put the Lady Jackets on top 36-33 with just over four minutes to play, but the lead didn’t last.

Jellico countered the run with a 9-2 spurt of their own, regaining the lead at 42-38 with one minute to play in the contest.

Williamsburg’s Brown cut the gap to 42-40 with 17 seconds to play, but that’s as close as the Lady Jackets got as they fell, 42-40.

Williamsburg falls to 1-7 on the season with the loss. They will be back in action today as they face Pineville in the Bowman Invitational Classic at 7 p.m.

Jellico 42, Williamsburg 40

Jellico                  7  12  14   9   42
