Greeneville Girls Pull Upset Of Chuckey-Doak

Greeneville High School's Lady Devils got a career night from 5-10 sophomore post Melissa Scott and had three players hit double figures in scoring as they surprised visiting Chuckey-Doak 72-56 Tuesday night at Hal Henard Gym.

Scott burned the nets for 21 points, hitting 9-of-11 from the floor, and she shared top rebounding honors with seven as the Devils pulled ahead of the Knights in the second period and would never let them regain the lost momentum.

"Wow," winning coach Lesley Murray said of Scott's performance. "I would say it was her best game. She was everywhere. She's one of our best defensive players and we put her on Andi Lamb all night. Andi's one of the best players in our conference. Melissa was huge. She was the difference in the game, both offensively and defensively."

Greeneville (8-16, 5-5) trailed 15-11 at the close of the first quarter, but they gave an indication of things to come by reeling off eight unanswered points to start the second frame and go into a 19-15 advantage. They went on to outscore the Knights 16-9 in the period and take a 27-24 lead to the locker rooms.

GHS led by nine with three minutes to go in the third, but Chuckey-Doak (10-13, 6-4) got back in it with a 3-pointer from out front by Hannah Riddle and a bucket inside by Lamb to close to 39-35.

But a 7-2 run by the Devils to close out the third lifted them to a 46-37 lead. Meghan Lamb came off the bench to score eight points in the fourth, and the game got out of reach for the Knights as GHS put together an 11-3 run in just over a two-minute span to lengthen the lead to 57-42.

"We have a deep bench, and I know we have some people that can contribute," Murray said. "Meghan really helped us in the fourth with her play."

Reagan Lowery also had a good night coming off the bench with 12 points, while leading scorer Madison Shipley finished with 11 despite having personal foul difficulties.

Starting point Lorena Leon also scored eight and came up with five steals and four assists. Another starting guard, Kaitlyn Hadjopoulos, went down with an apparent knee injury in the third stanza and did not return.

Chuckey-Doak was led by senior Hannah Riddle with 18 points, seven rebounds, three steals and three assists. Lamb finished with a dozen points. Taylor Campbell got nine points off the bench.

"It was certainly a good win for us," Murray said. "I think both teams (GHS and C-D) are looking to build an identity. You just have to persevere. You play a full season for a reason."

Greeneville goes to Claiborne on Friday, while Chuckey-Doak has a make-up league game at Grainger on Monday.
