The Moore County Raiderettes bounced back from a loss at Lincoln County last week to win a pair of games at the Kings Academy Classic in Seymour on Friday and Saturday.

Moore County (4-2) beat Central Park Christian School, of Birmingham, Ala., 61-45 on Friday afternoon and topped Greenback 41-35 on Saturday.

Eighth-grader Sloan Mann averaged 16.5 points per game and was named the MVP of the Classic. She poured in 21 points against Central Park and netted a dozen against Greenback.

The Raiderettes were coming off of a 68-39 loss to Lincoln County in Fayetteville last Thursday night.

Moore County led the Lady Falcons early, but turnovers in the third period proved costly. After racing out to a 21-15 lead in the first quarter and hanging on to a 31-28 lead at halftime, MCHS committed 10 turnovers in the third frame to allow the hosts to seize control of the game.

Lincoln County outscored the visitors 39-11 in the second half.
