PHS Basketball, Team FYN Sports

This past Friday night, the PHS Dragonettes varsity basketball team hosted the Lady Ramblers of LaFayette in another key 6-AAAA meeting. Coming into the game, the Nettes’, firmly held onto the 4th spot in the region standings, with LaFayette behind them in 5th. Pickens, defeated a much improved LaFayette team earlier in the season, & came in looking for the sweep.

 

We saw a back & forth 1st quarter to start this ball game. In their last game, LaFayette gave the top team, Northwest Whitfield, all they could handle & this game had the makings of a tight one. Pickens, held a 12-10 lead going to the 2nd. In the 2nd, the Lady Ramblers made a run to take the lead from the Nettes’. Using a 16-12 quarter advantage, LaFayette grabbed a 26-24 lead into the break.

 

At the half, the 2018-19 PHS Athletics Hall of Fame inductees were recognized. The inductees included: former coach Harold Culbreth, baseball player Matthew Dunn, the Lawson Family, & former basketball/football/golf player & current Dragons assistant football & boys basketball coach Stephen Hunter.

In the 3rd, the offense for the Nettes’ came to life and reclaimed the lead from the Lady Ramblers. Using a 26-15 3rd quarter run, Pickens took a 50-41 lead over LaFayette going to the 4th & final quarter. In a close 4th quarter which saw the Nettes’ just outscore the Lady Ramblers 16-15, Pickens held on for a very important win, 66-56.
