After dropping both regular season games to arch-rival Somerset during the regular season — the second being a gut-wrenching two-point loss at the buzzer — could the third time be the charm for the Pulaski County Lady Maroons when it mattered the most, in the opening round of the Girl’s 47th District Basketball Tournament?
