Lady Pioneers lose close game
Placeholder Image
Coach Erick Baird called a time-out with five seconds left hoping to devise a potential game-tying play in the girls freshman game against the Coffee County Lady Raiders Monday night. What coach Baird drew up during the break and what the Lady Pioneers executed on the court were two very different things.Warren County had the ball at halfcourt trailing 46-44, but threw away the inbounds pass and allowed Coffee County to escape Charlie Dalton Gym with a two-point win.Coach Baird was looking to get the ball in the hands of Bri Melton, who had scored 16 points. The inbounds pass was just short of the freshman’s reach though and Warren County was forced to foul after the Lady Raiders stole the ball.The Lady Pioneers had one last chance with 1.5 seconds to play and a Lady Raider at the free-throw line attempting a one-and-one.
