It didn’t take long for the heat to be turned up inside John Treadway Gym when the Unicoi County Lady Blue Devils paid a visit to the Lady Cyclones of Elizabethton for an Upper Lakes showdown.
Elizabethton was the one stoking the flames in this one as they built a 19-4 lead at the first stop and never looked back as they put the Lady Devils on ice with a 74-36 victory.
Three Lady Cyclones reached double figures while 11 of the 13 players that saw action recorded at least a deuce.
Lina Lyon set the pace in the first half for Elizabethton tallying 10 points to help expand the halftime advantage to 36-10. Renna Lane dumped in nine points in the first half while post Marlee Mathena added six.
The second half was a mirror reflection of the first as Elizabethton head coach Lucas Andrews was able to get several players on the court to close out the contest.
Lyon finished as the game’s high scorer with 14 points followed closely by Reilly Whitson who finished with 12. Mathena also reached double figures with 10.
Other scorers for the Lady Cyclones included: Lane (9), Michelle Shields (6), Maddie Fowler (6), Jamira Smalls (5), Katie Lee (4), Peyton McGee (3), Kalli Shepard (3), and Sadie Williams (2).
Unicoi Co. was led in scoring by Olivia Bailey with ten points while Faith Bennett and Allie Lingerfelt added nine points apiece.
