PIGEON FORGEā€”The Newport Grammar School basketball season came to an end in the opening round of the TMSAA Class AA East Sectional tournament on Saturday afternoon at Pigeon Forge Middle School.

The Newport Grammar Lady Warriors took Oneida to overtime before falling by a seven-point margin. NGS led the game by a 23-22 score at halftime.

The opening round game was a rematch of the 2013 Class AA East sectional semifinal game, won by the Lady Warriors in double overtime.

The Warriors season also came to a close at the hands of the Oneida Indians. Offense was a premium for the Warriors as they fell by a 29-20 score.

Both Oneida teams advance to the quarterfinal round of the TMSAA Class AA East Sectional tournament on Tuesday evening.
