Murray County girls 44, Coosa 27: In a game played on Monday night after last Friday’s game was postponed because of the weather, the Lady Indians built their lead through the first half and rolled with a balanced attack for a Region 7-2A victory.

Holly Stanfield led Murray County (7-14, 4-6) with 10 points, while Caitlyn Richardson, Caitlyn Sims and McKenzie Carroll each scored seven. Eight different players scored for the Lady Indians.

“It was pretty spread out and we played really good team ball,” Murray County coach Michael Hill said.

Murray County boys 67, Coosa 62 (OT): Down by seven points with three minutes left to play, the Indians were able to tie the game 58-58 at the end of regulation and clamped down the defense in the overtime.

Murray County (11-10, 6-4) outscored Coosa 9-4 in the extra frame to move above .500 on the year.

“I am proud of the guys for how they came out and played,” Indians coach Greg Linder said. “Our execution for the last seven minutes on the offensive and defensive end was great. Coming off of a four-day break and travelling on a Monday, just to get a win, we will take it any day.”

The game was a back-and-forth affair all night with the biggest lead by either team being seven points.

Brady Todd led the Indians with 23 points, while Matthew Corbin finished with 22 points and Jake Ice had 10.
