The Mercer County Lady Titans (5-2) fell short to Region 12 visitors Wayne County (6-0) on Saturday night, Jan 30. The Lady Cards remain undefeated and label themselves the team to beat in Region 12 play.
The Lady Titans started the game with energy and execution, scoring 23 first-quarter points and drawing applause from the fans for their determined defensive play.
Anna Kate Drakeford and Timberlynn Yeast took charge on the offensive end, netting nine and eight points respectively in the first quarter.
