It was the kind of a start to a basketball game that the Starkville Christian Lady Cougars wanted on Thursday night.
They just had trouble sustaining success against the Central Academy Lady Vikings.
After jumping out to a 12-1 lead in the first quarter, the Lady Cougars had trouble keeping up that pace and ultimately fell 50-40 at home to the Lady Vikings.
Central Academy went on a 13-0 run in the second quarter to take a 21-18 advantage at halftime, then secured control of the game with a 14-0 run in the third quarter.
