Franklin-Simpson had no answer for Edmonson County's defense on Friday night at the final round of the Rafferty's Caveland Classic as they fell to the Lady Cats 61-18.
Edmonson County forced 15 first half turnovers on FS and converted nearly all of them to baskets, which allowed them to amass a 43-11 lead at the half.
Eight different Lady Cats scored tonight and all 13 players on the roster saw playing time in the lopsided victory. Coach Kevin Jackson said there wasn't much more for which he could ask of his team on Friday night, especially the defensive effort.
"Whether you're on the road, whether you're at home, or at a neutral site, whether you're in a tournament, it doesn't matter. Your defense shouldn't be affected by where you play, and I'm really pleased with what happened here tonight."
The Lady Cats also had 17 team assists tonight, another stat with which Jackson was pleased.
"That tells me we're looking for our teammates, we're looking for the open player, we setting good screens, we're executing on offense, and that's another thing we talked about in our pregame, let's execute on offense."
Caitlin Simon led the Lady Cats in scoring with 24, and Peyton Martin put up 12, along with 8 assists, 4 rebounds, and 3 steals.
Madison Harrison had 8, Skylar Lewis had 6, Emma Rose Vincent added 4, Chanley Logsdon had 3, and Lauren Ballance and Mia Goad scored 2 points each.
The Lady Cats are now 11-2 on the season with a clean four-game sweep of the Caveland Classic, something they've accomplished for the second year in a row. They are scheduled to take on Butler County at home on Tuesday, January 2nd in a girl/boy doubleheader beginning a 6pm.
