Chestatee 53, Dawson County 51

Riley Black exploded in her final game of the season, pouring in 17 of her game-high 24 points in the first half to pair with 10 rebounds, 3 assists, 4 steals and 1 block as Chestatee (3-4) held off a hot-shooting Dawson County (2-4). Black was a wrecking ball attacking the rim relentlessly over the course of the opening 20 minutes, helping the Lady War Eagles to a 26-19 halftime advantage. The Tigers found themselves trailing 8-0 to open but Kindra Coker eventually steadied the ship before catching fire from beyond the arc in the second half. The southpaw drained five threes, four after halftime. Coker netted a season-high 21 points and served as a vocal leader defensively. Dawson County pushed ahead 48-47 with 3:30 left. Freshman Maddie Siuta finished with 12 points while Abby Samples-Slaton and Morgan Chester chipped in 7 apiece. Chester played a key role in Dawson County’s second half surge, drawing the assignment of defending Black and successfully using her length to block shots inside. However, in crunch time when her team needed points, Black delivered with a crucial coast-to-coast floater. Blakely Boyd also came up big, scoring all 7 of her points in the second half. Dawson County had a final possession with a chance to tie the game, but couldn’t get a shot off.

Union County 38, Fannin County 37

In what turned out to be the de facto championship game, a rematch between two one-loss teams, Union County (5-1) stunned Fannin County (5-2) for the second time this season on a last-second game-winner. The Panthers toppled the Rebels 36-35 in sudden death double overtime back in Week 1, Fannin County’s only loss of the season. Now in Week 7, the familiar opponents were deadlocked at 16 at the half with the title up for grabs. Union County pulled ahead 28-23 at the 9-minute mark as Lara Turner and Courtney Davis traded buckets. Davis, who won the scoring title with her performance, netted 18 points to pace the Rebels while Turner piled in 15 points, 11 in the second half. Comfortable playing in close games, Fannin County stuck tight with Union and continued to slowly chip away. They trailed 30-26 with 4:30 to play and sliced the lead to 36-34 with 21.5 seconds remaining after Macy Hawkins corralled an offensive rebound and kicked out to Reigan O’Neal for a three-pointer after it looked like the game was slipping away. With the full court press implemented, the Rebels would force consecutive turnovers and take the lead 37-36 with 8.9 seconds left after O’Neal split a pair of free throws and Ellie Cook sank both of her attempts. With the title hanging in the balance, Union County inbounded the ball to Ariel McCarter who drove down the right sideline before getting cut off by Davis. Nearly trapped in the short corner with no escape plan, Turner flashed to the block allowing McCarter an avenue to deliver her the ball. Turner caught the pass, surrounded by four Rebels and managed to score the game-winning bucket in traffic right before the horn sounded to become Sandy’s Spiel Fall League Champions. Union County’s nearly perfect foul shooting helped them win the game, going 17-18 while Fannin County shot 11-16.
