Southeast girls 45

Southeast Lauderdale got the best of both regular-season matchups against Forest High School, but the third time was the charm for Forest as the Lady Tigers fell in the Region 5-3A tournament Thursday.

Tia Larkin had 15 points for Southeast, while Jamyla Jenkins finished the game with 12 points.

“We’ve been in the final four nine of the last 10 years, but it ain’t looking too good this year,” Southeast head coach Joe Miller joked. “We’ve just kind of struggled this year. We’re still hanging, but this put us in a hole. We have to go on the road Monday instead of hosting.”

Kadishua Williams had a game-high 16 points for Forest, and Nautica Moore chipped in with 14 points for the Lady Tornadoes.

Southeast fell to 20-9 on the season.
