Make it three wins in a row for the Lady Red Raiders with a three point win over Elbert County.
It was a close battle Tuesday night as Madison County defeated Elbert County 48-45. The Lady Red Raiders started off with a 12-0 lead, but Elbert County cut into that lead to trail 28-22 at the half. Describing the second half as a back and fourth battle, coach Dan Lampe said that the Lady Red Raiders’ defense wasn’t bad, but could use a little more work offensively as the girls struggled to find their stride.
“We weren’t consistent,” he said. “I thought we had a big improvement between game one and two, but I’m not sure we improved Tuesday night. I’m thinking that we are looking at taking one step back and two steps forward as the girls gel as a team.”
