Lady Tigers remain perfect with win over Midlo Heritage
MIDLOTHIAN — The No. 8 Glen Rose Lady Tigers couldn’t have asked for a better way to enter the Thanksgiving break after posting a 39-37 road victory over No. 18 Midlothian Heritage.
With the win, the Lady Tigers improve to 7-0 overall after picking up their third win in five days after beating Joshua on Friday night and Springtown early Saturday morning.
Glen Rose senior Jeana Douglas paced the Lady Tigers with 17 points and Hannah Cantwell added nine for the short-handed Lady Tigers.
Douglas had eight of the Lady Tigers’ 10 first-quarter points, but they trailed the Lady Jags by two at the end of the first stanza.
Defensively, the Lady Tigers held the Lady Jags to just two buckets in the second quarter to lead 18-16 at the break.
Glen Rose increased the lead — although just slightly — and led by three points heading into the final quarter.
Behind Cantwell’s five points in the final quarter, including a foul shot to push the lead to two points, the Lady Tigers held on for the victory.
Behind Douglas and Cantwell, Abby Stephenson added six points and Zaidey Mills added five.
