Eastside guard Deshantra Kelly led the Lady Eagles with 13 points this past weekend against rival Alcovy, earning the Eastside Player of the Week honor.

Despite her double-digit effort, the Lady Eagles fell 62-53 to their county rival.

Kelly helped Lady Eagles to a 13-2 first-quarter lead, connecting on a 3-pointer during Eastside's opening run.

The senior was one of two Eastside players to score in double figures in the loss.

Eastside returns to action Wednesday on the road at Lanier.

With a win, Eastside could keep itself inside the top-half of the region heading into the Region 8-AAAA postseason tournament.

As of Monday, the Lady Eagles currently sit in fifth place in the region, a game back of Lanier.

Eastside closes region action on the road at Monroe Area on Friday.

Monroe Area is currently 0-5 in the region, suffering a 68-48 loss to Eastside earlier this season.
