The Monroe County Lady Falcons fought off a late charge by the Metcalfe County Lady Hornets Wednesday night to claim a 43-33 victory in the first round of the All ‘A’ Region 4 Girls Basketball Classic.
The Lady Hornets cut away at a double-digit Monroe County lead late in the fourth quarter to pull within six before the Lady Falcons extended their advantage to the final 10-point margin.
“We rely on our press to create an up-tempo game and I think we bothered them a little bit tonight,” said Monroe County coach Dwayne Murray. “We were able to force them to turn the ball over or to not get good shots, which helped us a lot. They handled the press pretty well, but when they beat it, we played pretty good half-court defense.”
