Senior Lady Cat Chanley Logsdon drained six 3-pointers Friday night against the Trinity Lady Raiders in a career high 25- point performance that led Edmonson County to a 67-54 win on homecoming night.
Despite the whistle party that slowed the pace of the entire game--resulting in 69 total free throws shot between the two teams, Edmonson County was still able to find some offensive rhythm led by Logsdon's shooting and a powerful display by sophomore forward Lauren Ballance.
Ballance also impressed with 17 points and 12 rebounds.
Free throws kept Trinity in the game--42 attempts--for pretty much the entire contest and would've given the Lady Cats even more trouble had they shot better than 62%, as Edmonson held a 13-10 lead after the first quarter.
A big second quarter from the Lady Cats set the pace for the remainder of the game as they outscored Trinity 24-13 in the quarter and compiled a 37-23 lead at the half.
Edmonson County shined at the free throw-fest, hitting 23 of 27 of them for 85% shooting.
Coach Bart Weaver pointed out that there were several things that needed work as the girls continue district play, but it was a good win for his team and he was glad to see Logsdon's offense coming along.
"She's got the green light to shoot and she knows that," he said. "She was big for us tonight." He also said he'd have to check further into Lady Cat records, but he felt like six 3-pointers could be close to a school record.
The remaining box score for the Wildcats was: Katie Lindsey 9, Mia Goad 6, Emma Vincent 4, Maci McCombs 4, Madison Harrison 2.
The Lady Cats are now 10-4 on the season and 2-1 in district play. They are scheduled to take on Monroe County in the Ken Byrd Classic on Saturday at 5:30pm. You can listen to the WildcatsLive Broadcast audio feed beginning around 5:20pm.
