Southampton High girls basketball played Sussex in a home game on Monday night. The Lady Indians beat the Tigers, 46-45.

“It was a good ball game – hard from the start. Both teams were neck-and-neck the entire game,” coach Littleton Parker said. “We tied it up and went into overtime. It was a tough ball game. Both teams played really well.”

Scoring for the game include: Ja’maya Hunt with 19 points, Bryona Knight with 13 points, Jordan Lee with 12 points and Latoya Lashley with 2 points.

The Lady Indians fell short at Brunswick Wednesday night, with a score of 38-8.

“It was just one of those night, you have them sometimes,” Parker said. “We are still going to rebound today though and play better tomorrow night [tonight].”

The team will play Greensville County in a home game tonight beginning at 6 p.m.

Southampton’s girls basketball team and Windsor’s girls basketball team will be in a Christmas tournament with Sussex and Colonial Heights on Tuesday, Dec. 29, and Wednesday Dec. 30.

Tuesday night Windsor will play Colonial Heights in the first game at 6 p.m., and Southampton will play Sussex in the second game at 8 p.m.

On that Wednesday night, the losers from both games on the previous night will play the first game, and the winners will play the second game for the championship.
