Lady Tigers break even with Lead Hill

Tuesday, November 16, 2021

A scheduling quirk had the Green Forest Lady Tigers hosting Lead Hill on back-to-back nights last week, with each team winning once.

Green Forest beat Lead Hill 43-33 on Thursday, Nov. 11, in the fifth-place game of the Lady Tigers’ Queens of the Court tournament. On Friday night, Lead Hill returned the favor by defeating Green Forest 41-27.

Virginia Gonzalez scored 15 points in Green Forest’s win on Thursday, with Mercedes Rivera adding 12 points and Leah Evans scoring 11.

In Friday’s loss, Allie Snow was Green Forest’s only double-digit scorer with 11 points.

“We didn’t play well,” Green Forest coach Ben West said of Friday’s game. Green Forest hosted Berryville on Monday. The Lady Tigers will be at home against Cotter on Thursday before taking a 10-day break from game action.
