|Two bad quarters spoiled the respective chances for both South Fulton squads on Friday evening. |
The Devilettes were held to five and six points, respectively, in the first and final periods of a 52-33 defeat vs. District 14A foe Greenfield.
Meanwhile, the SF boys fell as they were outscored 38-21 in the second half of a 68-41 loss.
South Fulton’s 14A twinbill that was scheduled for this evening against Bradford has been postponed due to the threat of winter weather and icy roadways. No makeup date has been announced.
The SF teams are now set to return to action (weather permitting) on Tuesday evening at Halls.
Greenfield 52, SF 33 (G)
South Fulton put in 11 points in both the second and third quarters, but the Lady Yellowjackets’ big start and finish ultimately proved to be the deciding factor.
During the middle two periods, Brooke Kane, Maeghan Eaves and Lauren Dowdy pitched in six points each.
‘It’s the same old story,” Devilettes’ coach Curt Lee said. “We’re still not getting the ball to the bucket and we’re allowing our opponents to get in and make their shots.
“We’ve got to find a fix for this.”
Overall, Eaves put in a team-high 11 points, while Kane also reached double digits with 10. Dowdy finished with eight markers.
On the glass, Eaves brought down five rebounds, while Kane was good for five caroms.
South Fulton, which turned the ball over 22 times during the defeat, falls to 1-6 (0-6 14A) on the campaign.
Greenfield 68, SF 41 (B)
The Red Devils (2-5, 1-4 14A) trailed by just a bucket 22-20 heading into the third quarter, but a 13-8 bettering in the stanza and a 25-13 advantage in the fourth ultimately steered G’field into the winner’s circle.
George Garmon totaled a team-high 13 markers and completed a double-double with 11 rebounds.
Jacob Wade added in 12 for the Red Devils.
Freshman guard Montre Lewis pitched in seven points, with Jonathan Avent held to just a half-dozen markers.
Overall, the Redmen shot just 14-of-55 on the evening.
“We didn’t shoot the ball well,” SF boys’ coach Keith Frazier said. “I feel like this was a game we could’ve won, but we instead learned a lesson that we should know by now.”
