NORTHWEST REGIONALS: No. 5 Tanner trails No. 8 Red Bay at halftime

By Kim West

HANCEVILLE — No. 8 Red Bay leads fifth-ranked Tanner 17-14 at halftime in the Class 2A Northwest Regional championship game.

Tanner freshman forward Kirstin Brown is drawing double-teams but has six points and six rebounds at the break.

Sydney Houston and Jessika Milton each drained a 3-pointer, and Kelsey Houston chipped in two points.

Red Bay led by as many as seven points in the first half and used a stalling, half-court offense to slow the tempo down.

The Tigers' starters spread the scoring around, with Carlee Berry (5), Allie Kennedy (4) and Kasey Sparks (4) leading the way.
