It was a slow start for the Lady Cats at Warren East last night, but a better second half allowed them to pull away and grab a 46-32 win on the road.
Coach Jackson said his main concern going into the game was the 7 days that his girls had been out of the gym with the recent snowstorm. "It wasn't a pretty win, but it was a W," said Jackson. "It looked like a team that had been off for a week."
Jackson said the entire first half was sluggish but his team responded. "I'll never fault a team for playing hard, and that's what these girls did in the second half."
The slow start was 7-7 after the first quarter with the Lady Cats leading 18-17. Edmonson County was able to push the lead to 9 after the third.
Solid defense forced the Lady Raiders into some turnovers that the Lady Cats were able to convert into points. Edmonson County finished on top, 46-32.
The stat sheet wasn't anything out of this world, but it was even across the board, which highlighted a team effort. Caitlin Simon led with 12 points and 6 rebounds, and Peyton Martin had 9 points and 2 rebounds. Jhonna Basil added 8 points, Chanley Logsdon added 6, Taylor had 5, and Katlin Collins had 4 points and 6 rebounds.
The girls take on Grayson County at home on Friday night in a g/b doubleheader. Sophomore Caitlin Simon is expected to join the 1000 point club during the contest, as she only needs 14 more points to reach the milestone.
