Ladies lose to Brantley County
The Long County High School girls basketball team lost to the Brantley County Herons Tuesday 34-54.
In the game, Caela LaRochester and Brie Page each had 4 points, Angel Wilson and Rhea Rose each had 5, Brittany Mills added 7, and the leading shooter for the Lady Blue Tide was India Gamble with 12.
In the loss, the ladies completed their 2-AA Region schedule and finished with a 4-10 mark, while their overall record stands at 6-15.
The ladies will play their final game of the year Saturday, when they get a rematch with 4-AAAA Brunswick High School.
In the first contest between the Pirates and the Lady Tide, Brunswick won 30-47.
The game Saturday will be in Ludowici, and it tips off at 6:30 PM.

Men beat Brantley
The Long County High School Boys Basketball Team wrapped up their region schedule Tuesday, beating the Brantley County Herons in Nahunta, 66-46.
"My reserves came into the game in the third and played through the first half of the fourth period, providing a huge spark in the game," head coach Deshon Brock said.
"Deandre (McCall), Britt (Horne) and Eli (Guest), along with Robert (Gamble) and Jimmy (Bacon) stepped up and made a few things happen in the second half of the game," the coach said.
Brock also said that in the second half, the defense had a much better effort and he was pleased with their performance.
With the win, the boys finished the 2-AA Region schedule with an 11-3 record, and an overall record of 18-5.  The Blue Tide's record is even more impressive, when you consider that all of their non-region games were against either 4-A or 5-A schools.
The team wraps up the season Saturday, when they take on Brunswick High School. Next week the region tournament begins.
"We finally have everyone healthy in our ten-man rotation. We had a few players out, and hopefully we can gel like we were before the injuries and illnesses hit us," Brock said.
The coach said he wants to "shore a few things up on defense" prior to the tournament, and will be doing that in the game against Brunswick.
Saturday's game against the Pirates will be in Ludowici.  The Blue played the Pirates just last Friday, and won a hard fought game 74-64. Tip off is at 7:30 p.m.
For week 12, the Blue Tide boys are ranked number 8 in the state, by the GACA Coaches Poll.
