Things looked good for Anderson County at halftime last Wednesday. Very good.
The Lady Bearcats had thrilled a larger than normal home crowd and dominated seventh-ranked Franklin County, the defending state runner-up and a team aiming for its third consecutive trip to the Sweet 16.
The Lady Bearcats led 35-22 at the break, but there were still 16 minutes to play. For the Lady Bearcats, they turned sour.
Franklin County outpointed the Lady Cats 28-8 in the third quarter on its way to a 70-60 win.
