The County High School Eaglettes basketball team showed their abilities on the court last week to get themselves a winning percentage of 50 percent after wins over Bolivar and Dyersburg.
The Dyersburg game was the game to watch of the week.
With both teams fighting for control on the scoreboard, it came down to the last seconds of the game. Chester County had the lead, but the Trojans tied it at 50 with 26 seconds left in the game.
Nonetheless, Kara Pipkin won the game for her team with some free throws.
She went 1-1 twice from the line within the last 15 seconds.
The first time was with 14.6 seconds left and the second one with 1.7 seconds left. It gave the Eaglettes the win 52-50.
The Eaglettes controlled the game the night before against Bolivar and won 57-46.
Unfortunately though, the two games against Bolivar and Dyersburg dropped the Eagles’ winning percentage to 50 percent when they were 2-0 before the games.
The Eagles fell behind early in the Dyersburg matchup and never caught up. The final was 67-45.
During the Bolivar game, the boys were in the game until the end of the second period in which they fell behind.
That game resulted in a Chester County Eagles loss of 69-59.

Quardarius Gains fought to get to the basket. Even though he got the shot, he was called with a charge.
Kara Pipkin scored the final points of the game against the Dyersburg Trojans at the free point line going 1-1 twice. The first time was with 14.6 seconds left and the second one with 1.7 seconds left. It gave the Eaglettes the win 52-50.
