HSBB: Jaguar Girls Use Stifling Defense To Rally Past Bobcats

Ridgeland-Hardeeville’s girls made a furious fourth-quarter rally to beat visiting Bluffton 47-44 on Thursday.

The Bobcats led 28-26 at halftime and extended the lead to eight entering the fourth quarter before the Jaguars outscored them 14-3 in the final period.

Quanajia Drayton scored nine of her game-high 24 points in the fourth quarter and Jamee Mack added nine points to lead the Jaguars. Allayah Bryan scored 15 points and Tatyana Aiken added 12 for the Bobcats.

The Jaguars (13-3, 7-1) will be the No. 1 seed from Region 8-3A and open the Class 3A playoffs at home Monday. Bluffton’s playoff fate was dependent on the result of Thursday’s Wade Hampton-Battery Creek game. With a Wade Hampton loss, the Bobcats (10-13, 2-6) would be the No. 4 seed and open the playoffs on the road Monday.
