The Class 3A Lady Tigers (6-4) blanked Anna, 11-0, in the second quarter and led, 19-6, at the halftime break. The Lady Coyotes (1-5) bounced back to take the fourth stanza, 11-5, but it was too late.


“We got better today,” Anna head coach Grant Bergman said. “I was encouraged by our offensive aggression. We were outstanding on first-shot defense, but we were exposed a bit on the boards.”


Sophomore Angel Dube, with 5 points, was tops among Lady Coyote scorers, as senior Savannah Kendall and junior JaShell Evans each collected 4.


On Friday, Anna rebounded with 47-10 defeat of Class 3A Quitman. In a game that was never close, the Lady Coyotes rolled to a 27-8 halftime lead and shut out the one-win Lady Bulldogs in the fourth quarter.
