Basketball Teams Sweep District Contests In Lafayette

The Cannon County Lionettes seem to be getting a rhythm to their three point shot attempts.  Tuesday night on the road they hit 9 three point shots and opened up a 19 point lead on Macon County by the end of the third quarter.  Kendra Maynard connected on 4 of the 9 made shots while Kristen Hale added 2 and Kelli Davis had 3.  Cannon improves to 8-1 with a 70-44 win over Macon County in Lafayette.  They also even out their district record at 1-1.  Davis led all Lionettes with 18 Maynard had 17 while Hale netted 10.  Autumn King and Erin McReynolds both scored 8 in the win. The Cannon County Lions saw the box score of Friday’s Macon County surprise win in Livingston Friday night and they weren’t impressed.  The Lions went out on the floor and made sure the Tigers weren’t going to claim them as another upset victim as Garrett McReynolds scored 10 first half points in the paint and Cannon beat their district opponent 59-48.  The Lions led by 20 plus points at one point in the second half.  Josh Ruehlan rebounded form a slow scoring first half to finish with 15.  McReynolds led the team with 20 and Jacob Nave added 12.  The Lions also had 29 free throw attempts through the game.  Cannon will move to 7-2 and 2-0 in district play. Friday night it’s the second of three district games in a row as the Lions and Lionettes host the Smith County Owls and Lady Owls.  Game time at 6:00
