    Henry County opened with full-court pressure defense and forced the Warriors to turn the ball over on their first seven possessions of the game. But the Lady Cats squandered extra chances and led only 4-0 with less than 5 minutes to go in the period.

    The score was tied at 52.

    Four of the game’s taller players fouled out: Henry County’s Derek Jeffries and Austin Young; and Eminence’s Brandon Mitchell and Daishon Moore.
