Gallatin, Tenn.- Lamarra Gordon scored 27 points, 19 of which came in the second half, but it was not enough as the Columbia State Community College Lady Chargers’ (1-1, 0-1 TCCAA) rally in the second half fell short, losing 80-73 to the Volunteer State Lady Pioneers in their opening game in the Tennessee Community College Athletic Association Conference. The Lady Chargers outscored the Lady Pioneers 47-36 in the final stanza but dug themselves a huge hole in the first half.

6-foot-4 post Porche Hannah added 13 points and nine rebounds. Marissa Lyttle came off the bench and had 10 points and 11 rebounds. At the 10:36 mark of the second half, Kyndal Hale hit a three-point basket to put Volunteer State up 65-50. The Lady Chargers then clawed back in and eventually took the lead on a 22-3 run. Gordon made a two-point basket with 4:14 left to give the Lady Chargers a 72-68 lead. Volunteer State went on a 12-1 run to finish the game for the victory.

“My teammates made it easy for me and we got back in it,” said Gordon. “I don’t think that we ran out of gas, I do think we didn’t execute well at the end. They have a very good team so it was tough. We will have to play a complete game tomorrow to win.”
