 South Greene's hopes of making it back to the finals of the Ladies' Classic for the second straight year were dashed by Oak Ridge Friday night, as the potent Wildcats posted a 51-41 win, thanks to an 11-0 run in the fourth quarter.

The game was nip-and-tuck through three quarters before Oak Ridge (13-1) got the big run in the final quarter that was all they needed to get back to the Ladies' Classic title game for the first time since 2002.

The Rebels (14-2) will play Morristown West again this year, but the two teams will have to battle for third instead of the championship they competed in last season. Oak Ridge will take on Bradley Central for the crown.

Destiny Kassner led Oak Ridge with 14 points while Mykia Dowdell scored 12 and Jada Guinn 10. The Rebels got 10 points each from Morgan Williams and Taylor Lamb. Dowdell had 12 rebounds for the winners; Lamb yanked off eight to lead the Rebs, who were outrebounded 32-23.

South Greene led 14-10 after one period and the score was tied at 21-21 at intermission. It was still an even game at 35-35 entering the fourth, but the Ridgers won the final period.

The lead changed hands 16 times in the hard-fought game and the score was tied eight times. Oak Ridge shot 52 percent while the Rebs made only 30 percent of their shots.

OAK RIDGE (51): Ellison 2-8 0-0 4, Jada Guinn 3-6 4-7 10, Destiny Kassner 6-9 2=2 14, Golden 1-3 0-0 2, Mykia Dowdell  6-9 0-0 12, Bates 3-5 1-2 9. TOTALS: 21-40 7-11 51.

SOUTH GREENE (41): B.Wykle 1-9 3-3 5, Reaves 1-2 3-4 6, Cutshaw 1-3 1-2 4, Morgan Williams 4-10 0-0 10, Taylor Lamb 3-11 4-4 10, K.Wykle 1-4 0-0 2, TK Franklin 2-3 0-0 4, K.Franklin 0-1 0-0 0. TOTALS: 13-43 11-13 41.
