ERIN, Tenn. — Moore County’s basketball season came to a close on Monday night as the Raiderettes fell to No. 2 Houston County 43-34. The Raiderettes got a solid performance from senior Makayla Ray, who knocked down four three-pointers in her final appearance in an MCHS uniform.

Despite falling behind early in the game — they trailed 15-8 after one period and 21-14 at the half — the Raiderettes rallied to make a game of it. Moore County knotted the score briefly at 21-all and kept it tight the rest of the way.

Houston County managed to put the game away at the free throw line. Moore County finished the season 19-13 and were stopped in the Region 5-A quarterfinals for the second straight year. The Raiderettes lose two seniors, Savannah Williams and Ray.

Houston County (31-1) moves on to face Middle Tennessee Christian School. In the other region games, Huntland beat McEwen and Community topped Nashville Christian School.
