The Lady Leopards hit a rough patch right before Christmas as several players were benched due to injuries. Coach Jerry King was hoping to use the Christmas tournament at Piedmont College last weekend and the upcoming Wingslingers’ Shootout at East Jackson to find depth on the bench.
Unfortunately for Banks County, neither games from the Piedmont College fourth annual Holiday Classic went in the Lady Leopards’ favor.
“Friday we played flat and Saturday we stayed in foul trouble,” King said.
The Lady Leopards opened with a two point advantage, 9-7, over the White County Warriors. During the second period, White County surged ahead to take the lead. Banks County responded and managed to tie the game at 13-13 before the halftime break.
