Edmonson Falls 44-43
Darren Doyle, story:
It was a tough night for the Lady Cats as they took on Logan County on the road last night.
The Lady Cats were looking to bounce back from a close loss to South Warren on the road earlier this week, but the Lady Cougars, with a 1-17 record, would prove to be hungry for their second win of the season on their senior night.
Edmonson County struggled in transition, which allowed several easy buckets for the Lady Cougars. Early hot three-point shooting allowed Logan County to take a 18-12 lead after one quarter. The Lady Cats were more efficient in their offense in the second and had cut their deficit to 26-23 at the half.
Logan was able to push back in the third quarter and they extended their lead to 8, which set up a very tight 4th quarter where the Lady Cats went on a 9-1 run to tie the score at 39. Paige Wolfe drove the baseline and hit a pull-up jumper to give the Lady Cats their first lead since early in the first quarter with 3:51 to go.
Hallie Cassady hit two free throws with 3:32 left to give Edmonson a 43-39 lead, but they wouldn't score again after failing to capitalize on several opportunities during the final minutes, including two shots near and at the buzzer that would've given them the win. Logan County hit key free throws in the final 30 seconds of the game that allowed them to regain the lead.
The Lady Cats were led by Katie Lindsey's 15 points and 7 rebounds. Macie McCombs added 11 points and one rebound, Lily Jayne Vincent had 6 points and 10 rebounds, Paige Wolfe added 6 points and 3 rebounds, Hallie Cassady had 3 points and 4 rebounds, and Shea VanMeter added 2 points and 3 rebounds.
Edmonson County shot 36% from the field and 63% from the free throw line. They are now 4-7 on the season and will play Larue County tonight at home for their senior night activities. The ceremony is scheduled to start at 6pm with tip off at 6:30pm.
