In last night's opening round the Lady Tiders fell to Bossier, and the Lady Warriors lost to Green Oaks.
Minden 30, Bossier 39
Minden actually led Bossier 6-5 at the end of the first quarter, but the Lady Bearkats roared back in the second quater out-scoring the Lady Tiders 23-4 to take a 28-10 halftime lead.
Bossier took the third quarter 23-11 and then coasted in the fourth for the win.
Miranda Fisher led the Lady Tiders with 15 points and Rachel Shine added eight. Metosha Gill scored five points.
The Lady Tiders will play again today when they take on Captain Shreve at 3:30 p.m. in the girls gym at Bossier High School.

Green Oaks led every quarter in their game with Lakeside and went on to win, 50-24.
The Lady Warriors trailed 14-8 at the end of the first quarter and 25-12 at the half. Green Oaks out-scored Lakeside 11-9 and 14-3 in the final two quarters.
Tamera Douglas led Lakeside with six points and Ashley McKensey scored five.
The Lady Warriors are now 1-2 on the season and will play their second tournament game against Woodlawn today at 4:45 p.m. in the girls gym at Bossier High School.
Tuesday, Lady Warriors 56, Lady Tiders 34
The Lady Tiders and Lady Warriors met Tuesday night in Sibley with the Lady Warriors taking a 56-34 win.
The Lady Warriors jumped out to a 13-4 first quarter lead, and then led 27-15 at the half. The Lady Warriors came out hot in the third quarter and out-scored Minden 20-7 and then stayed close in the fourth (11-12) to close out the win.
"Lakeside jumped out on us early," Lady Tider head coach Jacob Brown said. "We gave them too many easy baskets. The name of the game in the first half was turnovers, when we continued to give them turnovers, they continued to get easy lay-ups."
Turnovers continued to haunt the Lady Tiders after halftime.
"We came out in the third quarter and again it was turnover, turnover and turnover leading to Lakeside lay-ups. We played even in the fourth quarter, but you really have to give it Lakeside, they came out ready to play. I really don't know what was in the minds of our girls. We didn't play a very good ball game. We have to get better in a lot of areas, especially in limiting turnovers. You can't give teams easy baskets and expect to be successful."
Miranda Fisher led the Lady Tiders with 14 points and Metosha Gill scored 6. Rachel Shine added five points.
Shanae Collins led the Lady Warriors with 18 points and Jessica Bridges added 12. Tamera Douglas and Falon Miles each added nine points.
