After avenging an early-season loss to Chattanooga Valley on Tuesday, the redemption tour continued for the Gordon Lee Lady Trojans in Rock Spring on Thursday as they held off the Saddle Ridge Lady Mustangs to claim a 27-25 victory.
After giving up a half-a-hundred in a 50-21 loss to Saddle Ridge last month in Chickamauga, Gordon Lee got out to an 11-4 lead after the first quarter, but held a slim 15-13 advantage at intermission.
The Lady Trojans limited the Lady Mustangs to just two points in the third, pushing their lead out to six. However, they had to fend off a final rally by the home team to pull out the win.
