Somrthing’s a buzz... in Lion Country

“The Franklin Lady Lions came into Tuesday’s match up with the Academy Lady Bumble Bees tied for first place but they could not find an answer for the Lady Bees early on and as a result fell 69-58 in a big district game.

The Lady Lions spotted the Lady Bees a 12 point lead in the first quarter as they missed shots, gave up second chance points and turned the ball over enough to trail 23-11 at the end of the quarter. They would rally in the second quarter as the defense tightened up and some baskets started to fall and fittingly they closed the deficit to 7 points by the half, at 39-32. However, a sluggish start after halftime erased the progress they made in the 2nd quarter as Academy would win the quarter 18-15 to build the lead back to 10 points at 57-47 and would never look back again.
