The Dade County Lady Wolverines traveled to Model last week to face the Lady Blue Devils for the second time this season. In the first meeting the Lady Blue Devils dominated the game and came away with an easy victory on the Lady Wolverines’ home court.

This time the Lady Wolverines came to play and took an early lead. At the end of the first quarter Dade was on top 11-6.

While Model rallied back in the second quarter the Lady Wolverines held a one point lead, 19-18 at the end of the first half.

The third quarter saw the Lady Wolverines continue to play hard and add to their lead, heading into the final eight minutes Dade was up 30-26.

The fourth quarter turned a hard fought game into a disaster for the Lady Wolverines. The four point lead was quickly gone and the Lady Wolverines couldn’t find the basket as the Lady Blue Devils rallied for a 43-33 win.

The Lady Blue Devils outscored the Lady Wolverines 17-3 in the fourth quarter to claim the win.

Leading scorers for the Lady Wolverines were Sarah Reid, Erika Woodfin and Hailey Gass with six points each.  Abby Bradford and Lindsey Tinker scored five points each.

The loss left the struggling Lady Wolverines with a 4-4 region mark and a 13-5 record overall.

The Lady Wolverines hosted the Armuchee Lady Indians on Friday night looking to turn things around after struggling in the last few games.

They came out playing hard, especially on the defensive end of the court, but still found themselves trailing by a point at the end of the first quarter, 8-7.

In the second quarter the Lady Wolverines began to find their shooting range and outscored Model 14-11 to take the lead at the end of the first half 21-19.

Whatever Coach Randy Watson said at halftime worked as the Lady Wolverines came out and played one of the best second halves of the season.

In the third quarter Dade racked up 20 points to only 11 by the Lady Indians to take the lead heading into the fourth quarter, 41-30.

The Lady Wolverine kept the pressure on the Model ladies and outscored them 11-8 in the fourth quarter to claim a 52-38 region win.

Woodfin led the Lady Wolverine’s with 20 points followed by Chilton with 16.

This week the Lady Wolverines will be on the road at Murray County and at Chattooga before hosting the Coosa Eagles on Saturday Game time is set for 3 p.m.
