JMA girls get nipped in two overtimes

(Continued)

MILLEDGEVILLE —

The Gators inched within two points the final minute. Council muffed an inbound play letting Bulloch tie at 44.

Bulloch continued the momentum in overtime taking a quick four point advantage.

McCoy made two freebies to get back within one possession and a lay up for the tie creating a second extra session.

Gainous was pleased her squad didn’t roll over against the undefeated region opponent.

“We defended the basket when we needed to,” the Trojan coach said.

The basketball fight continued. Ritchie lipped out several attempts.

Bulloch prevailed in a heartbreaker for the home team. JMA never quit, but some late turnovers and poor luck cost them.

“I told them to forget about the bad. It wasn’t one little thing,” Gainous said. “We took a team with no region losses to two overtimes. We could have been defeated but came back and got stops. It just wasn’t our game.”

Ritchie and McCoy each scored 17 points and grabbed nine rebounds, The pair also combined for nine assists. Chambers added 14 points.

Next up for the Trojans is a state match up with Mount de Sales this Wednesday.
