JEFFERSON -- Chestatee used a 19-5 second quarter to erase an early deficit and then hung on in the second half to beat Franklin County 47-42 Saturday in the Jefferson Tip-off Tournament.

It was the season-opener for both teams.

Chestatee (1-0) trailed 14-11 after the first quarter but took a 30-19 lead into halftime. Franklin County cut the lead to 37-34 in the third quarter but the Lady War Eagles, behind Sam Brown, held on down the stretch.
