Lady Tigers take win over Winona

By BRANDON SHIELDS,

The Ethel girls pulled out off a win a low-scoring affair over Winona, while the Ethel boys fell to Winona late in the all-Tiger and Lady Tiger matchup.

The Tigers (1-9) and Lady Tigers (4-8) were set to open Region 5-1A play this week as they hosted Nanih Waiya on Tuesday and traveled to French Camp on Friday.

Destiny Felton scored seven points to help lead Ethel to a 26-17 win over Winona. Brooke Mitchell and Zakiya Dotson had five points each for Ethel. Dotson also had four steals and two assists.

Izik Stewart and Sacarrio Merritt each had 22 points to lead the Ethel boys, but it was not enough as Winona would pull away late to take the 56-51 win.
