Devilettes hold off HHS 45-39 --
Sloan led all scorers with 22 points, including a clutch 6-of-8 from the free throw line as No. 3 seeded Lebanon improved to 15-12 overall and moves on to the district semifinals against Beech 7 p.m. Saturday at Station Camp.
"The game was physical and that really plays into Madison's hands," said LHS coach Courtney McFarlin, "she's not afraid of contact and she's always looking to attack the basket."
Trailing Hendersonville 21-20 at intermission, LHS rode a 13-0 run in the thrid quarter to take a 33-24 advantage into the final period.
Hendersonville clawed back and tied the contest at 39-all with 1:51 to play on a deep 3-pointer by Taylor Wright.
Lebanon's Abby Wright emerged from a mad scramble under the bucket for a lay-up with :46 seconds left and a 41-39 Devilette lead. Lebanon put the game away by hitting 4-of-6 free throws over the final 25 seconds.
