The LaFayette Lady Ramblers led 18-17 at halftime on Thursday, but faltered down the stretch and lost a 50-33 decision to Cedartown in the consolation bracket of the Chattooga Christmas Tournament.
LaFayette trailed by four to start the fourth period, but had difficulty with the Lady Bulldogs' full-court press, leading to several late turnovers.
Marquilia Howell had nine points in the loss, followed by Nicky Yancy with eight and Grace Hamilton with five.
LaFayette (1-10 overall) will conclude the tournament on Friday with a 5:30 p.m. game at the War Lodge (old CHS gym). Their opponent was unknown as of press time.
