It was a good nice for the junior varsity Lady Cougar squad, as they were able to put together another solid effort to earn a 49-31 win over Hidden Valley Friday.

The entire first half was about as tight as a game could get, with the lead changing hands several times in each quarter.  Pulaski County held a slim 10-9 lead at the end of the first quarter, and then outscored Hidden Valley 9-8 in the second quarter to hold a 19-17 lead at the halftime break.

Hidden Valley worked hard in the third quarter, and some tough defense allowed them to outscore the Lady Cougars 10-5 and lead 27-24 at the end of the third quarter.

That was about the time the Lady Cougars decided that enough was enough.

The fourth quarter was a blur, as Pulaski County put on a defensive show that held Hidden Valley to just 4 points.  In the meantime, the offense fed off of the defensive pressure and scored points in transition off of multiple turnovers.  By the end, the Lady Cougars had outscored Hidden Valley 25-4 to earn the 49-31 win.  The win improved their record to 7-7 on the season.

Savannah Coffey led the Lady Cougars with a game high 26 points.  Dublin Middle School eighth grader Alexis Phillips, one of four Lady Dukes moved up to the JV squad, finished with 7 points.  Helen Counts added 4 points, and eighth graders Taylor Dickerson and Amiah Stables added 3 points each.  Emily Lane and Laney Cox added 2 points each, and Allison Caudill and Lexy Hurst added 1 point each.

Hidden Valley was led by R. Phillips with 11 points.

The Lady Cougars committed 17 turnovers, but stole the ball 19 times from Hidden Valley.  Helen Counts recorded 3 blocks, Alexis Phillips blocked 2 shots, and Laney Cox and Savannah Coffey had 1 block each.
