Timpson Lady Bears cinch a win over Shelbyville, 55-35

Lady Bears undefeated; ranked #9 in Texas 2A basketball

The Lady Dragons knew that they had their work cut out for themselves going into this one. Timpson is currently ranked No. 9 for Texas 2A girls’ basketball. The Lady Bears headed into this game atop 2A District 22 with a spotless record of 5-0.

Shelbyville’s record prior to this ball game was a respectable 4-1. Unfortunately for Shelbyville, Timpson would remain undefeated following a big win at home over the Lady Dragons.

Brooke Elliot of Shelbyville kicked things off with the first bucket of the game. Shortly thereafter, Timpson’s own JaKaria Deckard drained a three to put the Lady Bears on the board. It was evident that Timpson’s girls are comfortable within the walls of their home gym.

The Lady Bears shot 88 percent from the free throw line. The first quarter was a tightly contested battle. After the dust settled on the first period of play, the score sat at 8-7 with Timpson holding a slight edge over the Lady Dragons.
