Russell claims middle school girls title

SoVaNow.com / February 04, 2013
Russell has claimed the Southside Middle School girls’ basketball conference title.

Playing at home, Russell defeated the HCMS girls in the tourney final Saturday, 32-14.

Russell gained immediate momentum with an 11-3 run in the first period, holding the Lions to three free throws.

Slow-starting HCMS really struggled in the first half, as Russell had 22 points before halftime.

Ultimately, Brook Stith led the Lion girls, scoring ten points in the win.

Ineria McMillian and Joderia Walker each had eight.

HCMS never got untracked in the finals, as only four Lions scored. Brittany Clark led HCMS with six points.

Halifax did get a 24-13 win Friday over Nottoway in the tournament semifinals, held in Brunswick County. Shadajah Davis had eight and Malasia Boyd six as the Lions got some early balanced scoring and advanced to Saturday’s finals.

Nottoway did not connect on a field goal until the third period, as the Lion defensive pressure made the difference in this game.

HCMS, by contrast, finished with 24 field goals and had the game well in hand by halftime, leading 18-8 at intermission.

The Lady Lions started in first round tournament play with a 34-10 win over Powhatan Wednesday.

HCMS got 14 points from Shadajah Davis and nine from Malasia Boyd. Davis had all but two of her points by the end of the third period.

HCMS limited Powhatan to one field goal in the first period and two in the third period. Powhatan had four points in the final period, without sinking any free throws for the game.
