Girls Hoops: CF rebounds; Conway rallies to down SF

cfghoops-3Two night after losing a tough first-place showdown with region rival Conway, the Carolina Forest girls basketball team bounced back in impressive fashion.

The Lady Panthers (12-5 overall, 4-1 Region 6-5A) claimed sole possession of second place by blowing out visiting SocasteeĀ  61-35 on Thursday night at The Black Hole.

Carolina Forest standout Alexis Tomlin had one of her biggest nights yet, posting a solid double-double of 22 points and 18 rebounds. She also added six assists to her line score.

Carolina Forest teammate Cheyenne Pyles also had a strong showing, scoring 20 points on three 3-point baskets and adding four rebounds and three assists to the winning cause.

Carolina Forest remains one game behind the Lady Tigers for first place in the region while the Lady Braves fall to 3-2 in league play. The Lady Panthers return to action Tuesday at West Florence.

* Conway 39, South Florence 37: The Lady Tigers used a last-second steal and layup by Lenaejah Evans to down the Lady Bruins and escape with their perfect region record intact at 5-0.

Trailing 32-29 entering the fourth quarter, Conway continued to struggle on offense and needed a big play on defense to avoid overtime or a potential game-winning attempt by South Florence.

The steal and score gave Evans 10 points to join MeMe Williams (14) and Neci Hemingway (11) in double digits.
