BURGIN - The Mercer County girls bounced back from a shocking loss Friday night to defeat Burgin 83-38 in a 46th District game Saturday night.
Chelsea Goodman scored a game-high 28 points for the Lady Scotties, who saw their 23-game winning streak against 12th Region opponents end 24 hours earlier with a 61-59 loss at South Laurel.
Mercer (11-5, 4-0 district) also got 15 points from Jillian Horn, 13 from Chrystal Claunch and 12 from Erica Lee.
Burgin (8-6, 1-3) trailed by only 10 points at halftime at 30-20 but was outscored 30-8 in the third quarter and 53-18 in the second half.
"We were playing a pretty nice game ... and in the third quarter we folded under Mercer's pressure," Burgin coach Keith Monson said.
