Trojans basketball teams split against Tattnall



The JMA girls’ team looked impressive out of the gate as Kelsey Chambers accounted for all of her team’s first quarter points in building a 10-3 lead. The Lady Trojans would take a five-point lead into the intermission at 16-11.

Tattnall Academy outscored JMA 30-18 in the second half to earn the 41-34 win.

Chambers’ final bucket of the game gave the Lady Trojans their last lead at 23-20 with less than four minutes left in the third quarter. From there, the defending Georgia Independent School Association (GISA) Class AAA champs would score 12 of the next 13 points to take over the game at 32-24. Both teams would trade points down the stretch with Hannah Miller registering all nine of her points in the game’s last eight minutes that included two 3-pointers. She would finish second in team scoring to Chambers’ 13.

“Our D was great in the first half,” said head coach Natasha Gainous. “The majority of their points were second chances. The first half we did a great job on their top player, but we just ran out of gas. Kelsey Chambers wants to play just as hard offensively as defensively. She is constantly going but she just ran out of steam tonight.”

Both JMA teams also played Brentwood at home Saturday.

The Trojan girls used 19 points from Olivia Clements in a 42-38 victory, while the boys defeated the Eagles as well.

Chris Williams scored 15 points, Panfil netted 17 and Andrew Prestood finished the Brentwood win with 16 points.

JMA hosts rival Gatewood Tuesday night with varsity action beginning at 6 p.m.
