After knocking some of the rust off, Sequoyah rallied to score 20 points in the second quarter to take a commanding lead at half 32-20. In the second half it was more of the same for the Indians.

Angel Goodrich and Shanna Singletary were leading the way on the offensive end however, Lauren Hammer, Brea Brewer, and the rest of the Indians played stellar defense on the bulldogs. With the game mostly in hand Sequoyah finished off the Lady Bulldogs when they went on a 16-5 run throughout the fourth quarter to put the game away, going on to a 58-36 win.

Head Coach Bill Noble was very satisfied with his teams performance after the big win.

“I thought we played some really good defense throughout the game holding them to only 36 points,” he said. “Our offensive execution was a little off tonight but we were able to overcome that and get outta here with a win.”
