Lady Tiger Bianca Harvey tries her luck in the corner for a three pointer in the first round playoff game last Thursday evening. Harvey held 18 points respectively.

Last Thursday Lady Tigers hosted Riverside Academy in the first playoff game of the season. Dominating the second half Lady Tigers ended with a win 74-42.

"We didn't do well," said Lady Tigers Head Coach Butch Little. "We seemed a bit discombobulated without Kayla Mollere."

Mollere is one of the leading scorers for the Tigers who was out with a leg injury.

"Kendra and Bianca took charge of the game," said Little. "They put a lot of defensive pressure on the other team."

Kendra Coleman held an impressive 31 points taking the crown as the leading scorer. With her was teammate Bianca Harvey having 18 points. Kelci Bougere put up 11 points as well.

"The next games won't be any easier," said Little "We need Kayla back."

On the other end of the court were the Rebels. Riverside held their own for the first half keeping up with the Lady Tigers. However, they were not able to take the lead at any point of the game.

Leading scorer for Riverside were Kelsey Joseph with nine points. Meagan Malik, Jamie Bolden, and Kristy Milito each had eight points.

With a final score of 74 - 42 the Tigers advanced and the Rebels basketball season came to an end.

Kendra Coleman lead the Tigers with 31 points against Riverside Academy in the first round playoffs last Thursday.
