The Rutherford Lady Rams visited “The Dome” on Tuesday and came away with a 43-32 win over the Port St. Joe Jr./Sr. High varsity girls.
The young Lady Tiger Sharks never led but played very hard through out the game, said Coach Kenny Parker.
Port St. Joe was led in scoring by two seventh-graders Teiyahna Hutchinson with 16 and Brooklyn Quinn with 10. Ninth-grader Callie Fleshiner chipped in five points and had 12 rebounds. Maya Robbins had two points and three boards with four assists. Sophomore Shannon Pridgeon had five rebounds.
Rutherford’s leading scorer was Marsheba Addison with 20 points and five rebounds.
Port St. Joe travels to Quincy on Friday to play East Gadsden; the Junior High will also play at East Gadsden before the Varsity game. The Lady Tiger Sharks return home on Tuesday to open district play against Bozeman.
