After a sluggish start, the Lady Cats were able to overcome the Adair County Lady Indians 71-48 in a lop-sided win at the Food Pantry Holiday Classic in Campbellsville Wednesday night that saw ten Lady Cats put points on the board, three of which that landed in double figures.
Edmonson County ended the first quarter with a 13-15 deficit but quickly got things turned around as they outscored Adair 27-13 in the second, taking a 40-28 lead at the half.
The Lady Cats never looked back as their press was able to force Adair County turnovers, resulting in several transition baskets for Edmonson County. The Lady Cats also shot a total of 50% from the field and 44% from the three point line.
Coach Kevin Jackson was very positive on the Lady Cat effort.
"When we started pressing more, it got our girls excited on both ends of the court," he said. "We made some mistakes here and there, but it's nothing that can't be corrected."
Leading the effort was Caitlin Simon with 23 points, 5 assists, 4 rebounds, and 5 steals. Also in double figures were Peyton Martin with 12 points, 8 rebounds, and 3 assists, and Abby Alexander with 10 points, shooting 4/5 from the field, and connecting on 2/3 from behind the arc.
Also helping in the big win was Katlin Collins with 5 points and a season-high 11 rebounds.
The remaining box score was Lewis 5, Logsdon 5, Meredith 5, Cline 2, Ballance 2 (6 assts), and Goad 2.
The Lady Cats are scheduled to face Whitley County (6-3) tonight at 8:15pm. Edmonson County improves to 5-3 on the season.
