Published 8:57pm Saturday, February 12, 2011

DIXON’S MILLS – The Marengo High Lady Panthers overwhelmed the A.L Johnson Lady Eagles to take the Class 1A, Area 4 crown with a 64-35 win Saturday night.

The final score reflects a 51-22 point run in favor of the home-standing Panther squad spread over the game’s final 24 minutes.

The Lady Eagles opened up as much as a seven point lead in the first before Marengo battled back to end the first period tied at 13-all.

At the sound of the opening buzzer for the second period, the wheels came off for the visiting Lady Eagles.

The Panthers scored 14 unanswered points, and chewed 6:15 off the clock, before the Eagles scored their first – and only – bucket of the second period. The Lady Panthers closed the half up 34-15 on the heels of a 21-2 point run.

Marengo High hardly looked back the remainder of the night and stretched their lead to 49-26 after three.

Tallamachiia Dumas led the Lady Panthers in scoring with 18 points, three assists, three steals and three blocked shots. Dumas was also a rebounding machine, yanking down 29 boards. Cassandra Thomas followed closely behind with 17 points, eight rebounds, eight assists and seven steals. Shakayla Bouler tossed in nine points, six steals and three rebounds while Alesia Bowser had seven points, 10 rebounds and one block.

Ashley Edwards led the Lady Eagles with 18 points, eight rebounds, six assists and two blocked shots. Tiffany Barber followed with six points.

    to whomever at the demopolis times that this may concern….your inability or defiance of reporting on the games that the demopolis high basketball teams have played this year really leads me to believe that this paper is run by biased editors and reporters. With that being said i will definitely not buy another demopolis times paper because when football,softball or baseball season begins, i’m sure there will be nonstop coverage….BIASED!

      I am sorry you feel that way. But I do appreciate you expressing your concerns. Feel free to e-mail or call us at any time with any concerns you may have. I can assure you there is no bias against any of the teams or schools in our coverage area. If you will check back over the course of the season, there are not many basketball games that have been covered at all. It has nothing to do with bias, it is merely an issue of a lack of writers. We are always happy to accept any help anyone is willing to offer from stringers to call-ins. Unfortunately, during basketball season, we have received none of the above.
      Also, please note that we have never opted to cover a game from any other school on a night when Demopolis had a home game. There exists no favoritism in our coverage plan.
      Again, thank you for expressing your concerns and please feel free to continue to do so in the future.
