After a close loss earlier in the week to the top team in the region, the Cass High girls basketball team bounced back nicely with an 86-51 win over Paulding County Friday.
The Colonels cruised the whole way against the bottom team in the Region 7-AAAAA standings. As per usual, Cass was led by Claire Davis (21 points) and Londaisha Smith (20).
With the win, Cass is now 13-6 overall and 4-6 in region play with another game coming Saturday at East Paulding.
North Murray 52, Adairsville girls 38
The Adairsville High girls basketball team hung around for awhile at home Friday night, but North Murray eventually held on to hand the Tigers a 52-38 loss.
North Murray sprinted out to a 15-6 lead after the first quarter before Adairsville cut into the lead a bit in the second quarter, taking the score to 25-19 at halftime.
North Murray again came out strong to start the third quarter, though, outscoring Adairsville 16-10 in the period, handing the Tigers too big of a deficit to overcome.
With the loss, Adairsville falls to 5-13 overall and 2-8 in Region 6-AAA with another home game Saturday, this time in non-region play against Pickens.
Rome 43, Woodland girls 25
The Woodland High girls went up against a strong Rome team Friday night at home. The Wolves entered the game 7-1 in Region 7-AAAAA and 14-3 overall.
Meanwhile, the Wildcats have almost the opposite record, and it showed in Friday’s game in a 43-25 loss.
Rome got out to a 10-2 lead after the first quarter and a 32-12 halftime lead. From there, the two teams played out the string for the rest of the game.
While the loss is Woodland’s fifth in a row, the Wildcats can see some improvement. The 18-point loss is less than half of the 37 Woodland lost by the last time the team played Rome.
Woodland will now have a few days off before hosting Paulding County Tuesday.
