Lionettes Drop Second District Game Of The Year

The Smith County Lady Owls contained the Cannon County Lionette tandem of Kelli Davis and Autumn King in Carthage Friday night and the Lionettes lost their second district game of the season 61-40.  King got into foul trouble early in the game collecting two fouls in the first quarter.  The Lionettes fell behind by only 7 at half but Smith came out and expanded the lead by 20 to end the third quarter before closing out the game by 21.  Kelli Davis was the only Lionette in double figures with 20.  King only scored 2 and Maleah Scott ended up with 6.  The Lionettes fall to 2-7 overall and 1-2 in District 8-AA play Neither Cannon County nor Smith County were shooting lights out ball but the lights in the Smith County gym decided to go out anyway.  With 4:54 left to go in the first quarter, Smith County went on a little run to lead by five when half the lights went off in the gym.  After a 20 minute delay, the Lions were able to catch up and tie the game but Smith kept a cushion of a lead and ended up winning 62-50.  Freshman Charlie Parrish led the team with 13 points while Austin Martin added 11.  Cannon County has a 3-6 record and are 0-3 in district play.
