Lady Rebs perfect
after Jackson trip

The Obion Central girls are now 7-0 after winning at Liberty 63-34 on Monday night.
Typical of their early-season success, the Lady Rebels jumped on top early vs. the Crusaders, leading 18-6 after one quarter.
A 22-10 OC burst in the third period essentially ended any suspense over the outcome.
Shannon Wiggis led the victors with 18 points, while Brandi Goodman tallied 15 and Brooke Jennings totaled 11.
Central head coach Lyle LaRue also said Goodman had in excess of 20 rebounds.
Both Rebel teams will be in action tonight at Dyersburg for District 13AA play.
