After hammering out a 55-44 victory Tuesday over the Savannah High Lady Blue Jackets, the Bradwell Lady Tigers improved their overall record to 11-1 and their Region 3-AAAAA record to 3-0.
The squad is ready to play region opponent Windsor Forest tonight in Savannah, but coach Faye Baker said the girls still have plenty to work on.
She said the Tuesday game’s score wasn’t indicative of just how tough the Blue Jackets were on her squad.
“Savannah High led the whole game until four minutes left in the fourth quarter,” she said. “We struggled in the game. They had us on the ropes … We finally went up by one and then we were able to pull them out of the zone they were in and that is how we were able to extend our lead.”
Baker said she wants her girls to focus on consistency and not anticipate their next opponent’s abilities.
“The girls have to realize everybody is going to come at us hard because everyone wants to beat us now,” she said. “We are still nowhere near where we need to be.”
Tonight’s tip-off against the Lady Knights is set for 6:30. The Lady Knights come into the game with a 2-4 overall record and a region record of 1-1, according to the Georgia High School Association’s sports Web site.
