The Barbourville Lady Tigers opened up their season on the road at Jackson County with a 53 to 39 loss on Saturday night. The Lady Tigers are the two-time defending district champs but after losing their best senior class of all time and the whole starting lineup from last year they will be young and hungry this year.

  With zero starting experience, the Tigers appeared to be a little nervous in the first quarter only scoring three points. The second quarter saw the Tigers battle back to cut the deficit to 18-14 at the half. In the third quarter the Lady Tigers came apart at the seams allowing several easy baskets by Jackson County and committing 11 turnovers to make the score 45 to 26. The Lady Tigers won the fourth quarter 13-8 but it was too little too late.
