I thought it was two good girls basketball teams playing, so it was an exciting night.”
Southside (4-0) jumped out to a 12-4 first quarter lead and a 21-17 advantage at the half. T
he Lady Panthers led 31-24 after three quarters before a 10-2 run cut the GCHS deficit to 39-37 after a 3-point basket by Darrelyn Rudolph with 3:20 left in the game.
