Brittany Scott, Britan Bolding and McWilliams dominated the third quarter as they combined for all 16 of Red Bay's points, while the Lady Tigers held Belgreen (7-3) to just five points by Martha Billingham, who scored off a spin move in the lane in the opening minute and a 3-pointer late in the quarter.
