It was the fourth overtime for Hebron Christian in this very early season. The Eaglesâ€™ Taylor Coggins swished the corner three which sent the game to overtime tied at 47. But the Generals were too much for Hebron as Washington used the Eaglesâ€™ critical mistakes to turn the tide and defeat Hebron in overtime 59-49.
â€śIt is a hard loss because it is a game that got away from us,â€ť said Head Coach Gary Vaughn after an agonizing defeat, â€śWe should have claimed that one and done some different things toward the final stretch.â€ť
The Lady Eagles on Tuesday night played host to the visiting MAIS AAA Washington Lady Generals. In a game that saw Hebron Christian only trail by three points in the first half, Washington was able to pull away in the second half going on to win 54-36.
â€śWe kept it close through the first, we just donâ€™t have the depth that they [Washington] have,â€ť said Head Coach William Cotton after the Lady Eagle defeat, â€śI knew it would be a topsy-turvy game but I am just proud of our girls.â€ť
