Not only did Cedartown lose both of their games, but they also lost one of their key players.
Kayci McGee, a senior, went down hurt Friday night and did not play Saturday. She had been Cedartown’s leading scorer in each of the first two games.
“It was bad,” Head Coach Shereitha Allison said. “I don’t know how bad yet, but we struggled after her injury.”
Cedartown lost Friday’s game to Ringgold 60-47 and on Saturday they dropped a 64-48 decision to LaFayette.
Against Ringgold, Cedartown jumped out to a 20-7 lead after the first quarter. Unfortunately, the Lady Tigers outscored the Lady Bulldogs 15-8 in the second quarter to trim Cedartown’s halftime lead to 28-22.
In the third quarter, McGee went down with an injury and Ringgold took full advantage as they outscored the Lady Bulldogs 38-19 in the second half to win going away.
“The free throws made the determining factor,” Allison said, noting that Cedartown went to the free throw line 15 times while the Lady Tigers went 29.
Despite missing half of the third quarter and all of the fourth, McGee scored 12 points to lead Cedartown’s offense. Kristen Little and Daidrea Careathers both chipped in with nine each and Maddie Woodhouse added eight.
