They were led by Lila Payne, who had four first-half threes to help Hayesville to a comfortable 28-19 lead at halftime.

2nd Half Recap:

The third quarter was all Hayesville though, making adjustments at halftime seemed to do the trick. The Yellow Jackets held the Lady Bobcats to just three points in the third quarter. At the same time, they were lighting it up and scored 19 points of their own to take complete control and lead 47 to 22 at the end of the third quarter. The fourth quarter with a big lead saw Hayesville clear the bench and get valuable minutes for many of their subs. Hayesville would get outscored by one in the fourth quarter. Their lead, though, was insurmountable, as the Lady Yellow Jackets would go on to win 60-36.
