The leading scorer for Long County was Jameka Boyd who put up nine points, while Brittany Hall and Raven Rose each added seven, Mikayla Lovette put in six, and Laura Clary added two. Blake Willoughby led SVA with 17 points.
The loss dropped the Lady Tide’s overall record to 0-13 and their Region 2-AA mark to 0-9.
