With losses in their last three outings, including the last two by a total of five points, the Todd County Central Lady Rebels got back to winning ways on Friday night with a 46-34 victory over visiting Edmonson County.

Todd Central improves to 2-4 overall and hands Edmonson County its second straight setback to leave the Lady Wildcats at 2-4 as well.

Leading 7-2, Jamaia Coleman connected on a 3-pointer to give the Lady Rebels a seven-point edge, before Edmonson’s Paige Wolfe answered with a shot from behind the arc.  Todd Central scored the last five points of the 1st quarter, with Tamiya Foster knocking down a 3 and Lucy Chester scoring on a putback for a 15-7 score.

Abby Williams opened the 2nd quarter with a 3-pointer to give the Lady Rebels’ their first double-digit lead, and it was 20-7 after Alexis Taylor scored on a putback.  A Williams runner with just over two minutes left in the half stretched the margin to 14 points, and the Lady Rebels went to the locker room leading 28-17.
