It may not have been their best performance of the season, but the Madison Southern Lady Eagles (4-2) found a way to win 68-62 in double overtime versus Tates Creek Saturday night.
“We played hard, but we were sloppy in our execution for most of the night,” Coach Allie Turley said. “One of the things I love about this team is that they do not ever stop fighting, and it was that factor that allowed us to gut out a double-overtime win against a scrappy Tates Creek team.”
Samantha Cornelison finished with a team-high 27 points, while Sunni Walters added 14 points and eight rebounds against Tates Creek. Skylar Sparks added 11 points, while Macie Daniels finished with 11 rebounds.
Earlier in the week, the Lady Eagles dusted Danville, 66-50.
“We played the whole 32 minutes,” Turley said. “Our bench stepped up. We got great contributions from Macie Daniels and Caylen Conrad at key moments in the game. It was truly a team win.”
Cornelison finished with 20 points, while Daniels added 14 points and nine rebounds. Walters and Sparks each added 10 points in the win.
Southern travels to Rowan County for a 7:30 p.m. game Thursday night.
