LYNCHBURG, Tenn. — Still seeking their first win of the season, the Moore County Middle School girls basketball team dropped a 51-33 decision to Cascade here in Lynchburg on Monday night. The loss dropped the MCMS Raiderettes to 0-8 on the year as the season’s halfway point nears.
MCMS was slated to play at Fayetteville City on Thursday, but that game has been rescheduled due to a conflict with Fayetteville High School’s home football playoff game on Thursday night. A make-up date was not announced by press time.
The Raiderettes return home next week for a game Monday night against Liberty before contesting their next four games on the road.
Cascade 51, MCMS 33
A 16-point effort by the visitors in both the first period and the fourth period helped carry the Lady Champions to victory on a night when free throw shooting and attrition became an issue.
There were 53 fouls called in the game. Thirty-two of the fouls were whistled against MCMS as four Moore County players fouled out of the contest. As a result, Cascade went to the free throw line 44 times, making 18 of their attempts (41 percent). Moore County attempted 20 free throws, connecting on only seven (35 percent).
Haley Roberts led Moore County with eight points; Carolyna Driver and Harlee Deaton added six apiece. Kerrigan Fanning scored four, while Allison Vaughn had three. Laney Cashion, who left early in the game with a gash on her forehead and did not return, scored two points, as did Jordan Lund and Molly Raby.
Kailey Snell scored 21 to lead the visitors.
