Oxford 51 Pell City 22
Casmine Copeland scored 20 points as the Yellow Jackets snapped an 8 game losing streak against some stiff completion and rolled all over Pell City 51-22 last week in Oxford. Coach Tonya Peoples shifted Lexie Higgins to point guard and moved Copeland to the shooting guard and it proved to be successful against the Panthers, a team that knocked them out of the Area tournament last season.
Oxford jumped on top 10-0 and was never headed as they rolled to a 29 point victory. The Jackets led 26-10 at the half and were up 42-16 after three quarters as Copeland drained a hail mary shot from the other side of half-court.
Carter had 11 points and 5 rebounds, while Clark had 8 points and 5 rebounds. Higgins had 2 points and 7 rebounds. Alexandra Shakespeare had a 3 point basket in her first shot of the season as all the Jackets got some playing time in the second half.
