It’s not often that sharp-shooting Merkel guard Kaydi Pursley is held scoreless for an entire half. But in Friday’s District 4-3A tiebreaker at McMurry, that’s precisely what Colorado City managed to do.
Pursley, however, made up for lost time after the break, leading Merkel to a come-from-behind 39-36 win with 12 second-half points.
Kinzie Hays added 12 more points and Alaunna White tossed in eight for the Lady Badgers (19-12, 10-3), who as the No. 2 seed, will open with Coleman in the bi-district round on Monday at 6:30 in Winters.
