SportsUnique Lady Blue Devils subdue pesky Longhorns 73-44

ERWIN—Johnson County’s performance against Unicoi County was a vast improvement from their two previous games but it still wasn’t enough for them to pull  out a win. They fell to the Lady Blue Devils 73-44 on Friday in a game that was interesting for better than three quarters.

Unicoi County outscored them 24-9 in the final period with 13 points coming from the foul line. They shot 16-of-18 in the second half. Johnson County managed only 6-of-18.

“This was a game we were in for most of the way,” said Johnson County head coach Thomas Wampler. “It was a 12 or 13 point game in the fourth quarter but they started knocking down their free throws and we didn’t get to the line enough. This allowed them to stretch their lead out quite a bit. But this was the best game that we’ve played as a team. Everybody was doing what they were supposed to do. Haley Brown got some tough rebounds and Margaret Morrow gave us some good passing from the interior. I would much rather lose this type of game than the way we lost at Happy Valley or to Sullivan East last week. I’m pleased with their effort. “ More...
