Lambert girls' comeback bid falls short
ChatLambert web

Lambert chipped away, fell behind, chipped away, fell behind further, and still the Chattahoochee girls couldn’t put the Lady Longhorns away.

Kara Kidwell’s three-pointer with 1:26 to play caused Chattahoochee coach Haaris Quraishy to call timeout — the Lady Cougars’ nine-point halftime lead had dwindled to just one.

Whatever he said seemed to work. The Lambert girls scored just once thereafter, but Chattahoochee’s 38-33 win Tuesday night wasn’t complete until Charity Starkes’ two free throws with four ticks remaining.

Leah Cote led Lambert (9-11 overall, 4-9 Region 6-AAAAAA) with 14 points. Ashley Johnson added six points and Kidwell finished with five.

Chattahoochee (12-6, 6-6) did just enough. The Lady Cougars made 11 of 14 free-throw attempts in the second half and hit three from the stripe in the final 29 seconds.
