It may be called the charity stripe, but the foul line wasn’t in a very giving mood for the WCMS varsity girls team Monday night in Coffee County.The Lady Pioneers only made 1-of-10 free throws in the fourth quarter as Coffee County stormed from behind for a 43-37 victory.Poor foul shooting down the stretch limited WCMS to three points in the fourth quarter. That allowed Coffee County to snatch the lead with 3:15 to play after trailing the entire game. Late turnovers plagued the Lady Pioneers as they attempted to mount a comeback.Marah Wanawaker and Tyra Wright led WCMS with 12 points each.The Lady Pioneers pounded the glass and used their inside might to build a commanding 14-6 first quarter lead.
