FRANKLIN FURNACE – Just when the Green Lady Bobcats needed "Moore," they got it.

Down by two points with less than a minute to play, Courtney Moore drained a 3-pointer to lift Green to a 50-49 Southern Ohio Conference win Monday over the Portsmouth East Tartans.

After taking the lead, Green’s defense got the ball back and the Lady Bobcats proceeded to run off most of the remaining time to secure the win.

"That was a big win. We came back and played defense the second half. That’s what got us through. That saved us. We didn’t play much the first half and our shots weren’t falling," Green coach Melissa Brown said.

Moore finished with 16 points to pace Green. Megan Tackett had 15 points and seven assists, and Jennifer Cline got 10 points and seven rebounds. Emily Horsely had six steals and three assists.

Kelly Day scores 16 points – 8 in the second quarter – to lead Notre Dame.

Green was down 10-8 after the first quarter, and each team scored 18 points the second quarter to make it 28-26.

Tackett scored 7 points the third quarter while the Tartans rallied to score 7 points and cling to a 39-35 lead.

But Green stormed back the fourth quarter and outscored the Lady Tartans 15-6.

Green, 4-1 overall and 4-0 in the SOC, hosts Coal Grove Monday.
