JACKSBORO, TN (WLAF) – It’s a long way to March. However, if Bearden’s rest of the season is anything like Thursday’s night’s season opener on the road at Campbell, the Lady Bulldogs will either be hoisting the gold ball at Murfreesboro or at least be in the thick of the hunt for it. Watch the game HERE on demand.
Campbell spotted Bearden 16 points and never recovered. After it was 16-0, the Lady Cougars posted 37 points compared to the 43 Bearden tallied though Bearden ended up with a 59 to 37 victory.
Izzy Proffitt finally broke the ice with a bucket about 90-seconds before the first quarter closed. The freshman lead all CCHS scorers with 16. Cora Browning tossed in 10 while Alyssa Brown added eight. Bailey Gillum finished with three.
If anything, Campbell had a real up close and personal look into state championship caliber basketball. Bearden came with a hunger to win as if it has something to prove following last season’s 29 & 4 team that was two points short of making the Elite 8 of the state tourney.
Bearden hosts Catholic on Saturday while Campbell is home with Knoxville West on Tuesday. Josh Parker has all the action over the WLAF – Doyle’s Tire Shop Sports Network beginning at 5:50 pm.
