For the fourth time this basketball season the Cannon County Lionettes held an opponent to under 30 total points during a game.  Wednesday night the Lionettes began play in the Trousdale County Holiday tournament in Hartsville against St. Cecilia.  The Lionettes got off to a slow start but led at half 44-9.  Cannon would only allow 2 3rd quarter points controlling the game and winning 67-17.  Lionettes defense only allowed 6 St. Cecilia field goals all night long.  Lindsey Reed’s 17 and Abbey Sissom’s 14 led the way for the Lionettes scoring.  Also Pauliana Tarawa had a career night with 9 points. The Cannon County Lions were taught another lesson in playing all four quarters as the Lions let another game slip from their grasp.  This time the opponent was Pickett County.  Cannon County led by as many as 13 points and had the lead going into the fourth quarter.  Once again turnovers led to Pickett County Points as Pickett County came back from behind with under a minute left to lead by four.  After hitting clutch free throws, Pickett County completed the win 61-57.  Cannon had three players in double figures led by Cory Henley who tossed in 15 points, Justin Tobin netted 13 and Jarrett Melton had 11.  Cannon County will resume play today with the boys game scheduled at 2:30 and the Lionettes will play at 7:00 tonight at Trousdale County High School.
