In another tight scoring game the Lady Warriors of Jenkins did something that Beach, Groves and Camden County could not. They upset the number one ranked Lady Tigers by defeating them 57-58.
The Lady Tigers (15-5, 8-2) are once again tied for first with Groves. Beach is steadily on their tail at second.
Lady Tiger coach Faye Baker said turnovers were a factor. They had 18, but missed free throws also factored in as they went 8 for 20 at the line.
"We are still trying to focus on reducing turnovers and again on executing and being able to execute in the game," Baker said. "You know when you are playing a team and it is tight you got to be able to convert from the line and we didn't. If we had shot well from the free-throw line we could have very well been on the winning end."
Baker did credit the Jenkins squad for playing a good game.
"We really didn't play bad but Jenkins just played really good," she said. "They were clicking on all cylinders. We won quite a few close ones and sometimes the odds are against you in that aspect. But we will continue working and sometimes a loss like this is good because it will wake you up and cause you to play harder."
Baker said despite her recent victories she has not been completely satisfied in her team's play.
"Hopefully by dropping this game it will wakes us up and we can go out and play better," she said.
The Lady Tigers were scheduled to travel to Wayne County Saturday. They return to regional action on Tuesday, hosting Savannah High.
