Central girls top Bainbridge

THOMASVILLE — An early start to day two of the Holiday Hoopfest at Thomasville High resulted in a “sluggish” game between the Thomas County Central Lady Jackets and Bainbridge Lady Bearcats.

Blown layups, missed free throws and constant turnovers were the story of Central’s 38-24 win Friday over its Region 1-AAAAA rival.

“It was real sluggish,” Central coach Deatrice Hose said. “Both teams were very sluggish. It was hard to get anything going. We barely had anything in the third quarter.

“I think early in the morning, both teams were still asleep.”

The Lady Jackets were held to just eight points in the third period. Bainbridge, though, mustered just four points. That followed a scoreless second quarter for the Lady Bearcats, who were outscored 14-0, en route to a 20-7 halftime deficit.

Central converted just 4-of-11 free throws, while Bainbridge made only 2-of-10 from the charity stripe.

Kaeci Guyton and Kamaria Lewis each paced Central with  10 points. Guyton scored eight in the second quarter.
