LIVINGSTON-The Clay County girls basketball team fell here to Pickett County in the District 7-A tournament consolation game Monday night, despite a 23-point outing by Lady Dawg Rachel Burnette.

CCHS led by three at the end of the first period, but headed into the half down by the same margin.  They knotted the game up heading into the final quarter, but the Lady Bobcats outscored the Lady Bulldogs by ten in the fourth to take the 66-56 win.

Pickett County’s Terrah Garner poured in 37 points to carry her team to the big victory over the higher-seeded Clay County squad.

The CCHS loss left them with a fourth-place finish in the conference, but they still have a chance to redeem themselves in region play as they take the floor Friday night.
