Clinton Lady Arrows Shoot Down Gulfport Lady Admirals At 5A State Tournament

The Gulfport Lady Admirals sailed out to a 7 point lead in the first half and things were looking up. The Clinton Lady Arrows battled back behind the play of Sophomore Maranda Anderson. In the closing second of the first half she drove to the hoop and her bucket gave Clinton a 28-27 lead.

Gulfport regained momentum in the third quarter behind the play of Latoya Branch and Brittney Reece. The duo helped the Lady Admirals of coach Walter Walker grab a 6 point advantage.

The Clinton Lady Arrows didn't quit. Maranda Anderson led the charge with 29 points giving Clinton a 69-59 win ending the Lady Admirals season at 21 and 11.

Coach Walker said, "We turned the ball over too many times and Clinton capitalized. Not taking anything away from Clinton, we played hard and enjoyed a great season. In our minds we're winners. This was only the fourth team in Gulfport Lady Admirals basketball to make their way to the State Tournament I'm proud of this team."

Clinton advances to the 5A semi-finals facing the Hancock Lady Hawks 6:30 Wednesday night in Jackson.
