ROME — The Gordon Central Lady Warriors traveled to Rome on Tuesday night to take on region foe Coosa in their brand new gymnasium. The Lady Eagles came in to the game naturally fired up and defeated the Lady Warriors, 48-42, to earn their first region win (1-3 in Region 7-AA) and to move to .500 on the season (6-6).
The Coosa Lady Eagles never found a lead comfortable enough to break away, but they also did not slip in their return to a home court.
It didn’t take long for the Coosa Eagles to feel right at home Tuesday.
