David Emmanuel 40, Hilton Head Christian 39: Down one, with the ball and 36 seconds remaining in the game, Hilton Head Christian held for the final shot. The Eagles were fouled with six seconds left, missed the two free throws and fell to David Emmanuel in the Lady Gator Classic at Bullock Academy in Statesboro, Ga.

The Eagles (1-1), missing three key players, were led by Ziaree Doe's 13 points.

Macee Tamminen scored nine and Audrey Bensch added seven.

"It was a good tournament, a very good tournament," HHCA coach Kenny Conroy said. "We got some girls who don't normally play a whole bunch some playing time."

The Eagles play at 6:30 p.m. Tuesday at Beaufort Academy.
