|Tuesday, January 3, 2012|
On Coach Larry Inman's birthday, Lebanon High's Devilettes rallied from 13 down at intermission to defeat Wilson Central 42-40 Tuesday night in Gladeville.
Mackenzie Lamberson's putback of a Julia Fox miss just beat the final buzzer for the game winner.
"I told the girls, we just needed to get some stops there in the second half and they responded. Bottom line, we just needed to play a little better. To come here tonight and come away with a win against a team like Wilson Centtral is a great honor for our kids," Inman said.
Soph Kristen Dedman helped key the comeback with four second half 3-pointers and finished with 12 points. Fox led LHS with 15 points. Lebanon improved to 8-7 overall and 2-1 in District 9AAA play.
Central's Sydney Vanlandingham led all scorers with 20 points while Taylor Peterson chipped in with 10. WCHS finished 7-of-8 from the line, but a mere 1-of-13 from beyond the arc.
The Lady Wildcats slipped to 9-4 overall / 2-1 in 9AAA play with the loss.
The boys game was all Wilson Central from the jump as the Wildcats took a commanding lead at intermission and went on to down Lebanon 71-37.
Three Wildcats reached double figures, led by 19 from Jacob Williams, Dee Oldham with 17 and Tyler Soffiantino with 13. Central improved to 11-2 overall and 3-0 in District 9AAA play with the victory.
Lebanon (5-10 / 0-3) was led by Cameron High with 19 and Case Sloan had eight points.
LHS will visit Station Camp on Friday, Jan. 6 while Wilson Central travels to Gallatin High.
