WHITE HOUSE -- The Macon County Junior High girls basketball team dominated play last Saturday afternoon, rolling to a 40-21 victory at White House Heritage.

Tigerette forward Dallas Caldwell provided a pair of first-quarter baskets as her squad took a 10-3 lead into the second stanza and extended it to 16-7 by halftime.

The margin was 10 points (24-14) entering the fourth quarter, and Karly Ramsey made two 3-pointers in the final period as Macon County pulled away.

Caldwell finished with a game-high 10 points, and Ramsey and center Natalie Green scored nine points each. Teammate Laityn Kirby provided eight points, and Alexis Bandy and Grace Deckart contributed two points each.

Claire King and Macie McFarlin led the Lady Patriots with 10 and eight points, respectively.

Both teams struggled offensively as the Tigerettes emerged from Monday evening's home game with visiting Westmoreland with a 19-15 victory.

Macon County avenged a 38-32 loss at Westmoreland on Nov. 21.

In the rematch, the Tigerettes (13-1) led most of the way, though it remained close.

Macon County led 4-2 after one period of play, 11-8 at halftime and 13-12 entering the fourth quarter.

Baskets from Green and Kyra N. Gregory early in the fourth quarter extended the lead to five points, but Payton Crump's 3-pointer pulled the Lady Eagles to within two points.

Westmoreland missed two shots that would have tied the contest and then had possession with less than 20 seconds remaining with another opportunity to either tie the game or take the lead.

However, Kirby stole the baseline inbounds pass and was fouled as she drove coast to coast. Kirby made both free throws with 14.5 seconds showing to seal the win.

Gregory and Kirby led the Tigerettes offensively with six and five points, respectively, backed by Green (4 points), Deckart (2) and Ramsey (2).

Westmoreland center Baye Dobbs scored a team-best six points.
