Lady Tigers Ground Eagles In 70-43 Mastery
The Scotland County Lady Tigers improved to 4-2 on the season by demolishing Knox County 70-43, but it could prove a costly victory as a pair of Lady Tigers starters went down late in the game with leg injuries.
Both Brittney Courtright and Valerie Crawford had to leave the game in the fourth period. Courtright is battling a chronic foot problem while Crawford sustained an ankle injury.
Their status for the December 21 game vs. Green City is still in question.
Courtright started the Lady Tigers off on the right foot, hitting a pair of jumpers to open the game. Rebecca Consbrock scored on an offensive rebound to put SCR-I ahead 8-2. After the Lady Tigers suffered through a bit of a dry spell, Ali Fromm took over, scoring seven straight points to help Scotland County build a 17-7 lead.
The margin went to 12 points on a bucket by Courtright. The Eagles then rallied to pull within five points.
Consbrock had the answer. The senior guard scored five straight points while also getting the job done on defense as her play helped spark a big run by SCR-I.
The Lady Tigers ended the second quarter on a 10-1 run as Crawford closed out the rally with a three-point play putting her team on top 34-19.
Crawford started right where she left off, scoring six of the first eight points in the third quarter as the Lady Tigers blew the game open. Scotland County got solid play from its senior reserves, as Ashley Ellison, Kayla Ebeling, Jacqui Drummond and Leslie Duley all racked up key minutes during the victory.
Fromm put the game away for good, scoring the first seven points of the fourth quarter, ending any hope of an Eagles rally as the margin swelled to 62-36.
The junior guard led all scorers with 24 points. Consbrock and Crawford each scored 11 points for the Lady Tigers and Courtright gave the team four players in double figures as she ended the night with 10 points.
