Lady Tigers take down Yellville-Summit at home

Tuesday, January 9, 2018

The Green Forest Lady Tigers started the second semester on a positive note Tuesday evening, as they defeated the Yellville-Summit Lady Panthers, 42-31.

"Both teams were playing decent defense and both teams missed some open shots that may or may not go normally," Green Forest coach Kyle Farrar said. "But we played pretty good in the second half and played pretty good defense throughout."

Kelsey Phillips scored the first six points of the game for Green Forest and the Lady Tigers led 8-4 at the end of the first quarter. Daisy Padilla and Kendall DeMeyer added baskets for Green Forest in the second quarter as the Lady Tigers led 13-9 at halftime.

Taylor McFarland scored all nine points for the Lady Panthers in the first half and she finished with 17.

"Taylor was on the same summer team as my daughter Ashley," Farrar said. "She can shoot and most of the time she scored, it came off of the same set. When she got a good look, she made it."

The Lady Tigers jumped out to a 29-17 lead at the end of the third quarter, as Ashley Farrar scored six points and Phillips added five. Green Forest led by as much as 18 points in the fourth quarter.

Farrar finished the game with 16 points, while Phillips had 12 and Daisy Padilla had five.

"Overall, that was a really good win for us and it puts us in a good position moving forward," Farrar said.
