SEQUOYAH — Sweetwater traveled over the ridge to face Sequoyah on Monday night. Third time was the charm for the game to actually be played, as the previous two were rescheduled due to inclement weather. The Lady Chiefs dominated the first contest with ease and won going away, 47-23.  
Sweetwater is still low on depth, and was unable to keep up with Sequoyah, who at times goes 10 deep on the depth chart. Emily Ingram led all scorers with 12 points. Macala Rasmussen led the Lady Cats with 6 points.

In the night cap, the Chiefs used pressure defense and made sure to capitalize on their fast break chances to beat the Wildcats. 71-43. Sweetwater did not score its first point of the game until the 13.1 mark in the first quarter. The second half was much of the same for both teams.
"We just wanted to make sure they didn't get the shot they wanted. Clark is good, and we wanted to keep him in check. We stopped the ball early before it got to him," said Chiefs head coach Daniel Curtis.

Sweetwater finished the first half 1-of-20 from the field and found itself down 31-10 at the half. The third and fourth quarters were equally a struggle for the Wildcat offense. They came alive a bit late, but the Chiefs had already put the game away.

"We played well. Our defense stepped up, and that's what we need to do as we move toward the tournament," Curtis said.

Nick Wicker led all scorers with 16, while Brett King led Sequoyah with 15 points. Andrew Millsaps had 10 as did Seth Battle for the Wildcats. Sequoyah and Sweetwater will have a couple more games before they head to McMinn County for the 5-AA tournament, Feb 14.
