GAINESVILLE  — A furious fourth quarter rally on the road fell just short for Class 3A ninth-ranked North Hall on Tuesday night in a huge Region 7-3A matchup against East Forsyth. 

North Hall fell 65-63 to the Lady Broncos to see its season-high five-game win streak snapped. North Hall also had won three straight in region play.

The Lady Trojans (11-6, 3-4 Region 6-7A) trailed most of the way as East Forsyth (11-3, 5-1 Region 6-7A) led 21-18 after the first quarter and 36-28 at halftime. The Lady Broncos took what looked like an insurmountable 56-41 lead into the final period.

East Forsyth had built its big lead behind Ella Holbrook, who had drained five 3-pointers as part of her 23 points. Alison Hidema poured in 21 points, including five treys of her own.

But North Hall stormed back behind Rylee McCall, who also caught fire from behind the 3-point line. McCall knocked down five 3-pointers as part of 23 points and got the Lady Trojans within two points with 3.9 seconds left. McCall had one last chance to tie the game or win it but her jumper at the buzzer just missed to preserve the win for the Lady Broncos.

Kristina Peach and Amelia Shoemaker both had 12 points for North Hall.

Both teams will be back in region action on Friday. East Forsyth will play host to No. 1-ranked Lumpkin County while North Hall travels to Cherokee Bluff.


CHESTATEE 46,
MADISON COUNTY 44

Class 4A No. 10 Chestatee held off an upset-minded Lady Red Raiders to win its third straight game.

Riley Black had 25 points and 10 rebounds to pace the Lady War Eagles (12-5, 3-2 Region 8-4A). Bowen Corley added 8 points and 8 rebounds for Chestatee.

The Lady War Eagles next travel to No. 7 Cedar Shoals on Friday in a huge region showdown.


NORTH FORSYTH 76
GAINESVILLE 53

The Class 7A No. 2-ranked Lady Raiders jumped on the Lady Red Elephants quickly and never let up in taking a Region 6-7A win at home on Tuesday.

North Forsyth (14-3, 5-0 Region 6-7A) led 12-2 in the first four minutes and took a 19-5 lead after the first quarter. Gainesville (8-8, 1-4 Region 6-7A) played the Lady Raiders to a draw over the second and third quarters (40-40) and was within striking distance at 59-45 heading into the fourth.

But North Forsyth held the Lady Red Elephants to just 8 points in the final period and pulled away for the big win.

Gainesville next will travel to Lambert Region 6-7A action on Friday while North Forsyth plays host to South Forsyth.

Haelim Adle led North Forsyth with 17 points. Erin Whalen added 12 points as 11 different Lady Raiders scored.

Keidra Young paced Gainesville with 16 points. Keke Jones had 11, Amaya Topps 10, and Caloni Young 8 for the Lady Red Elephants.


LAKEVIEW ACADEMY 68
MT. BETHEL 30

The Lady Lions got their first Region 6-A Private win of the season with a dominating performance at home on Tuesday.

Playing in its first game since the Lanierland Tournament almost two weeks ago, Lakeview (4-8, 1-2 Region 6-A Private) looked sharp early, running out to an 18-2 lead after the opening frame. The Lady Lions took a 31-8 advantage into halftime.

Lakeview continued to pour it on in the second half to get its most lopsided win of the season.

Joelle Snyder had another solid game with 16 points and 7 steals to pace the Lady Lions. Dynesty Putman added 14 points, 7 rebounds, and 6 steals for Lakeview.

Sara Nivens had 12 points, Ashlyn Henderson 9 points and 9 rebounds, and Sidney Corbin 9 points for the Lady Lions.

Lakeview next will travel to Mount Pisgah on Friday in region play.


LANIER CHRISTIAN ACADEMY 39,
TRINITY PREP 30

Junior Camille Hoffman had a huge game for the Lady Lightning pulling down 20 rebounds to go with 6 blocks and 5 points as they overcame a rough first half to pull out a region win on Tuesday.

With the win, LCA improved to 7-10 overall and 1-2 in GAPPS play.

Senior Ashley Avery also had a solid game with 15 points and 12 rebounds. Sophomore Moriah Clark added 8 points for LCA.

The Lady Lightning next will travel to Killian Hill for another region matchup on Friday.


NORTH OCONEE 43,
EAST HALL 37

A depleted Lady Vikings squad dropped their third straight game, and second straight in Region 8-4A, on Tuesday night in Bogart.

East Hall (8-8, 1-4 Region 8-4A) remained near the bottom of the standings with the loss while the Lady Titans (11-7, 4-1 Region 6-7A) kept pace with No. 2 Jefferson in the region standings.

Alexis Burce led East Hall with 12 points. Audrey Griffin added 10 for the Lady Vikings.

East Hall will play host to Madison County on Friday in region play.
