Chilton County’s varsity girls basketball team looked to add to their three-game winning streak on Friday night against undefeated Tuscaloosa County, but it was the Wildcats who improved to seven wins in a row as they proved too much for the Tigers to handle and handed them their second loss of the season, 55-20.

The Wildcats (7-0) that got things going in the first half, holding the Tigers (3-2) to just three points in the first period on a Chynna Davis three pointer.

The Wildcats kept up the fevered pace during the second period and would go to the halftime break up on the Tigers 35-14.

Cold shooting and turnovers continued to plague the Tigers in the second half, as the Wildcats pulled away to a 47-16 lead in the third period.

The Tigers were lead by Davis’ eight points, while the Wildcats had three players in double digits: Katlyn Madison with 12 points, Victoria Henry with 15 and Katelynn Court with 10.

Chilton County’s boys team also fell to Tuscaloosa County, 68-38.

Richard Price led the Tigers with 10 points, and Keshiun White had five assists.
