Lady Tigers inspiring effort comes up short to Arcadia

If the Jonesboro-Hodge Lady Tigers turn their season around in the 2022 portion of their schedule you can look back to the third and fourth quarter of the Arcadia game played on Tuesday as the catalyst.  JHHS lost the contest 66-57, which dropped their season slate to 2-9 but what lends promise to a better future was their inspiring second half play.

The contest started as expected for a team which hasn’t played in 11 days. JHHS couldn’t connect and fell behind 18-8 after one period and 39-20 at the half but the second half was a different story primarily through picking up the intensity on defense and riding a wave of threes by Xabrianna Jackson. Behind five trey’s in the second half alone (she hit a career best 8 in the game) and 23 of her season high 39 points, Jackson helped JHHS shave ten points off the lead in the final two quarters. Keaisiah Andrews also came up big in the second half with all 8 of her points as JHHS put up a season high in points to date. Arcadia improved to 7-9 on the year after breaking a six game losing streak.

JHHS (2-9) 8 12 19 18 57
Arcadia (7-9) 18 21 14 11 66
JHHS scoring: Jackson 39 (8-3’s), Andrews 8, Kimble 3, Z. Hoggro 2, Malone 2, McGuire 2
