Lakers pound Warriors, Lady Lakers fall

In Jan. 24-30, 2008 issue

Times Journal Reporter


The Russell County Laker and Lady Laker basketball teams split games as they traveled to Albany last Friday to take the rival Clinton County Bulldogs.


The Lady Lakers (7-11) were victorious in the first game, winning by a score of 43-38.

“This was a big win for obvious reasons. Any time you can go on the road and score a victory against a district opponent, it's big,” Coach Craig Pippen said. “Especially considering they are what I believe are the most improved team in our area,” he said.

“They shot the ball well in the first half. Parrish got hot early so we made some adjustments at half time and switched to a triangle and two to try and limit Parrish and Flowers open looks at the basket.” “I think Ashly Franklin did an outstanding job defending Flowers. She ended up only scoring two points against us.

“Kim Pierce scored three straight trips down the floor for us that started a run that changed the momentum of the game.”

“Kim has the ability to cause a lot of defenses problems with her quickness and shooting range. I hope she continues to improve in this area,” Pippen said.

“What impressed me the most about this game was our team's ability to go into a hostile environment and battle back from a deficit to win a close game.

“Our team has improved to the point were they are gaining a lot of confidence and urgency,” he said.

Russell County was led in scoring by Kim Pierce with 11 points.
Ashly Franklin had 10 points for Russell County while Michelle Copley tallied eight.

Lindsay Ramage score seven points for the Lakers while Rachael Miller had five points.

Freshman LeeAnn Grider had two points in the victory.

The Lady Lakers, despite not scoring in the second quarter would rally in the final two frames to take the victory and sent the Lady Bulldogs to the doghouse.

The victory gave Coach Craig Pippen’s program their seventh win of the season and a boost of confidence going down the stretch run of the season.

In the boy’s game, the Lakers (6-9) played the Bulldogs close the entire game, losing by four points, 70-66.

Junior Bryon Ellis had another solid showing with 20 points while Robbie Bell and Timmy Coffey both had 16 each in the loss.

Also scoring for Russell County was Adam Justice with six points, Josh Popplewell with four points and Zach Carney and Kyle Burchett with two points apiece.

The Lakers took an early lead but the Bulldogs, behind some hot shooting, made a comeback in the second quarter.

The Lakers would never recover from their eight-point second quarter.
