GRAY — Cloudland had a shot to win at the end, but it did not go in and it was heartbreak for the Lady Jr. Highlanders.
A missed three-pointer that would have won it missed for Cloudland, and Unicoi County won a very tight 45-43 contest over Lady ’Landers at Ridgeview Elementary School Thursday night in the quarterfinals of The Trailblazer Classic.
They were very evenly matched and it showed as the neither team had more than a five-point lead.
Unicoi County led 40-35 propelled by some big shots from Haley Padgett and Chloe Powers, but the terrific trio of Olivia Chambers, Abbey Gouge and Trinity Vines had Cloudland in a position to win.
