The Lady Eagles cut the Heritage lead to 5 points but the Lady Mountaineers outscored Seymour by 6 points late in the game to seal the win.
The Lady Eagles were led in scoring by Seagle with 15, followed by Flynn with 9, Jordan Ballard with 6. Kasey Norman,3, Payton King 2 and Lexi Justus with one.
Jordan Johnson and Marley Long played big for Heritage especially down the final stretch. Long led the Lady Mountaineers with 12 as did teammate Leah Thomas. Johnson added 11.
The loss makes the Seymour Lady Eagles 1 and 2 so far this season. Lady Eagle Coach Brandi Stallings has scheduled a very tough pre-IMAC schedule this season in hopes that it will make them tougher and better prepared to compete in the IMAC regular season and post season which is really what counts.
Next they will be playing in the tough Heritage Classic in Maryville which will have some of the top competition in the area.
