Edmonson Voice Sports
It was a tough night for both the Lady Cats and Wildcats as both teams were defeated by Daviess County last night in Owensboro.
The girls kicked things off with an up-and-down first quarter, falling behind 7-1 then going on an 11-0 run to take the lead 12-7. Daviess was able to climb back on top and ended the quarter with a Lady Panther half court shot at the buzzer and a 19-14 lead.
The Lady Panthers were able to continue to stay just out of reach from the Lady Cats in the second as Edmonson County took a 30-21 deficit into the locker room at halftime. Daviess shot 9 of 17 from behind the three-point line in the first half as they only had one two-point basket at the break.
The second half was much of the same as Edmonson County never could make up the points and Daviess County went on to win 61-49.
Caitlin Simon led the way for the Lady Cats with 20 points, 6 rebounds, and one assist. Skylar Lewis scored 11 points while adding 6 rebounds and Peyton Martin added 10 points, 4 rebounds, and 4 assists.
Also helping the effort was Maddie Cline with 6 and Katlin Collins added 2. The Lady Cats are 2-1 on the season and are scheduled to play Greenwood at home this Friday night at 6pm.
