Lady Chargers lose to Trailblazers at Gulf Coast Classic

The Lady Chargers played against the Vincennes University Trailblazers this afternoon in the consolation game of the Gulf Coast Classic.

The Chargers lagged behind early, 14-20 at the end of the first quarter. An evenly-

played 2nd quarter saw the same6-point deficit going into the half, with GHC down 33- 39. Vincennes opened the 3rd quarter with a 1-point lead.

Their lead held steady for most of the 4th quarter until the Chargers came to within 3 with 23 seconds remaining and them having the ball.

After Jahnaria Brown cut the lead to 1 with about  10 seconds left, the Chargers fouled Vincennes hit their free-throws to push the lead back to 4 with 4.7 seconds remaining.

At the buzzer, a 3-point attempt from Ja’Lyn Reese just inside half-court to tie the game was no good. The game ended 83-86. The Chargers’ record now stands at 2-2.

“I am excited about this team and how hard they are working to get better,” head Coach Brandan Harrell said.

“We certainly didn’t get the results we wanted, but we fought through some adversity and I think it was a great learning experience.” Said Harrell.

The Lady Chargers will return to the court on Saturday, November 23, when they face off against Lawson State Community College. Harrell said that they are more concerned about their games with defending conference champs Southern Crescent and South Georgia Tech.

“If we can use these early games to continue our growth, I think we will have a chance to be really competitive down the stretch,” He said.
