Lady Lions chase away Cougars

    After splitting the opening weekend of the girls’ basketball season, the Lady Lions sported a 1-1 record as they took to the court against a pack of Lady Cougars inside Jack Butcher Sports Arena Tuesday evening. The hosts were able to prevail in a cat-fight, 40-36, but the outcome left a lot to be desired from head coach Dave Smith. Loogootee could not put the ball in the bucket all night long, and ND senior post player Jenny Dove went off for 25 points. However, some critical three-pointers during the first frame and just enough charity tosses in the waning seconds helped the gals pick up their second win in three games. The first quarter saw the home team rack up a 16-10 lead on six field goals, including three treys.  However, the team only registered eight more baskets the entire game, including just five total after intermission.  But, a lead that was once 22-12 late in the second period was never squandered.The Lady Lions made just 8-17 free throws, including missing six of 13 chances in the last stanza. Kelci Mann was in double figures again with 14 and Wynter Wagoner backed her up with a dozen. Taylor Walker, threw in two bombs early on and finished with seven, Waynessa Burch had five, and Tia Pennington one hoop.  As mentioned before, Dove was nearly unstoppable, putting up all 10 of her squad’s tallies in the first.  She also was 9-9 at the line as North Daviess made all but one of their 13 trips to the charity stripe  Loogootee faces South Central at 1:00 p.m. on Friday, November 27 th,  inside JBA.
Junior Tia Pennington goes up for a shot during the game against North Daviess on November 24.
