Lady Hounds best Mount Pleasant

Thursday, February 12, 2004

Make it five in a row.

The Salem Lady Greyhounds remained unbeaten in their last fives games with a 44-28 non-conference win over the Mount Pleasant Lady Bluebirds Feb. 3.

The Lady Hounds (14-7) fell behind 7-4 at the end of a low-scoring first period, bouncing back to move on top 18-15 at the half.

Holding Mount Pleasant to six points in the third period, Salem turned a 35-21 advantage after three into a 16-point win.

Brittany Bales led Salem with seven points, while Carrie Johnson and Tori Watkins tallied six points each.

The senior boys' game was canceled due to a lack of players on Mount Pleasant's part.

With just six active players on the Bluebirds' roster, and two of those out with illness, Mount Pleasant was short the five players required by Arkansas Activities Association rules to start a contest.
