SCR-I Falls For Third Time To State Ranked Lady Indians
If there is a better defensive team in the high school girls basketball ranks than Clark County, the Lady Tigers have been fortunate enough not to run into it. Unfortunately for Scotland County, it has been forced to play the Lady Indians three times already this year.
The two teams locked horns on February 1st in Memphis for the Tri-Rivers Conference match-up. Clark County clamped down on SCR-I leading scorer Ali Fromm, holding her to just nine points, more than 13 points below her season scoring average.
Scotland County isnít too shabby on defense itself. However it was all about offense in the first quarter as both teams put some points on the board. Clark County put on a perimeter show to build a 18-15 lead to end the first period. The Lady Indians hit seven three pointers on the night.
Daryle Goldie led the Clark County sharpshooters with four three pointers to help the visiting team take 36-25 advantage at halftime.
SCR-I trimmed the deficit to single digits to close out the third period before Clark County pulled away down the stretch for the 60-44 victory.
Brittney Courtright and Valerie Crawford each had 10 points to lead the Lady Tigers. SCR-I fell to 11-8 on the year and 1-2 in conference play.
Clark County (16-2, 3-0) showed why it is the #3 ranked team in Missouri Class 3. Brady Logsdon paced the Indians with 15 points. Goldie and Ashley Wallingford both added 12 points.
