The Crossett Lady Eagles lost a game in overtime last week, but then returned to the court to play another close game on Friday.

Crosssett played the McGehee Owls Tuesday and the Smackover Buckaroos at the end of the week.

In McGehee, Brooke Courson scored the first points of the game. Courson stole the ball for a fast break layup, then scored again for a 4 - 0 lead for the Eagles.

McGehee got back in the lead, but Ali Rindt hit a three-point shot that put the Lady Eagles back over the top 9 - 7.

The teams traded the lead back and forth until the game was forced to overtime.

When the Lady Eagles missed a layup at the buzzer, the game went to the Owls 38 - 36.

“I was confident going into the game and even when we went into overtime,” Coach Shanae Govan said. “We played hard from start to finish.”

The stats show that the girls played together as a team, with four players tied for leading scorer.

Rindt, Courson, Shekirra Gavan and Jayden Thurman all scored six points.
Govan named Rindt player of the game, saying that she really stepped up and made key plays at important moments.

The Lady Eagles traveled to Smackover Friday and — even though they lost 42 - 32 — performed much better against the team than the last time the met up.

“The first time, we lost by 40 points,” Govan said. “This time by 10.”
