MARION &045; The MMI Lady Tigers outscored the Autauga Academy Lady Generals 13-4 in the 3rd quarter to pull away and gain their sixth victory of the season 49 – 27.

Both teams had a difficult time putting the ball in the first half that ended at 12-11 with the Lady Tigers on top. &8220;We had a heart to heart talk at half time,&8221; said MMI coach Michelle Ivey. &8220;We seem to be a second half team. They gave a lot of effort in the third to pull away.&8221;
