GHS coach Jerome Antone said the same miscues that hurt the team in the Calhoun game reappeared.

"We didn't protect the ball and that led to several turnovers," Antone said. "Our free throw shooting also hurt us in this game."

The Tigers were led in scoring by Amanda Dunklin with six points.

Dunklin also grabbed eight rebounds on the night.

Rachel Turner, Shalonda Hawkins and Veronica Cook each scored four points for GHS.

Antone said Jessica Crenshaw also had a good game.

"Although Jessica only scored two points, she helped us by recording eight steals," Antone said. "That gave us a chance to capitalize with some points."

Hawkins also collected four rebounds.

"We need the whole team to play together as one,"

Antone said. "Having just one player making the plays will not cut it.

We need everyone to come together and play."

The Tigers will be at Monroeville on Tuesday, Dec. 9, to play Monroe County.

The game will be the Tigers' first area game of the season.

"Our area games are extremely important," Antone said. "The results of these games will determine a major part in how our season will end up."
