Grayson Girls Lose 6th Straight
Edmonson County led 1-0 after an early free throw made by Lily Jayne Vincent and never trailed again as the Lady Cats had little trouble defeating Grayson County last night on the road 37-24. A blistering 18-3 start by Edmonson County set the tone for the rest of the contest, led by Paige Wolfe's three, 3-pointers in the first quarter. Wolfe finished with 12 points.
Edmonson County's shooting cooled down in the second quarter and Grayson County began to put some points on the board. The Lady Cougars held Edmonson County to only 5 points in the second but the Lady Cats led 23-12 at the half.
The rivalry game was full of emotion and physical play, including one pile-up as each team fought for possession of a loose ball that resulted in a double technical foul, but Grayson County continued to struggle to score in the final quarter as the Lady Cats went on to win.
It was the first game back at Grayson County for Edmonson's junior point guard Annie Kiper, who transferred this year. She is averaging 7 points, 2 assists, and 2 rebounds per game after 4 games as a Lady Cat.
Eighth grader Cariann Williams had 10 points, 9 rebounds, 6 blocked shots, and 4 assists. Hallie Cassady had 8 points, 9 rebounds, Lily Jayne Vincent had 5 points and 3 rebounds, Kiper had 1 point and 4 rebounds, and Emma White had one point before exiting the game in the first half with a knee injury. It appeared that she hyper-extended her knee during a play but her condition is not currently known.
The boys were scheduled to play immediately after, but the game was postponed due to quick snowfall that made for slick road conditions. The game will be rescheduled for a later date.
The Lady Cats are now 8-13 on the year and are scheduled to play Allen County-Scottsville at home on Monday night, which will be the 2022 basketball homecoming.
