LE ROY — Southern Coffey County High’s girls found themselves down big early Friday night.
But the Lady Titans managed to pick themselves up from the canvas after falling behind visiting Madison High 9-0.
An 8-2 run sparked a Southern Coffey County comeback in what wound up a 40-37 win.
“It was another very physical ball game,” Lady Titan head coach Jeff True said. “Both teams played a lot of intensity.”
Southern Coffey County trailed 9-0 before embarking on a 19-6 run to lead 19-15 at the break.
The game was nip-and-tuck from there. The Lady Titans led 30-25 after three periods.
Kaitlin Meyer led the Lady Titans with 16 points. Shelby Birk added seven.
True said a big key for Southern Coffey County was limiting Madison’s two leading scorers Shelby Buster and Morgan Stout, to eight six points, respectively. Other statistics from the game were unavailable.
“I was very proud of the way the girls battled in this game,” True said. “They did a good job of mixing up their defenses.”
Brittany Shaklee led Madison with nine points.
The next two games promise to be just as tough for Southern Coffey County.
The Lady Titans travel to Uniontown Saturday for a makeup game. They travel to St. Paul, the state’s fourth ranked Class 1A team, on Tuesday.
