Winston County’s Abby West drilled a 3-pointer on the Lady Jackets’ first possession of the second period to take an 8-7 lead, but two free throws by Addison’s Callie Brewer gave the lead back to the Lady Bulldogs. The back-and-forth scoring kept up until the end of the half, but a deep 3-pointer from Maison Evans right before the buzzer gave the Lady Bulldogs a 16-15 lead heading into halftime.
