Lady Tigers Canít Escape Eagles Nest With Victory
An 11-0 run to start the third period sealed Scotland Countyís fate on Friday night in Edina as the home team ran away with a 54-29 victory over the Lady Tigers.
SCR-I was on the wrong end of a pair of Knox County runs that turned a tied ballgame midway through the second period into a lopsided win for the Lady Eagles.
With the game tied at 14-14, Edina embarked on a 9-0 run to build a 23-14 cushion. Kirsten Johnston ended the streak when she was fouled on a three-point attempt. The senior nailed all three free throws. Baskets by Kaitlin Caldwell and Valerie Oldham helped keep Scotland County close, trailing 29-21 at the intermission.
But the much improved Knox County squad put the game out of reach with an 11-0 run in the third period that ultimately ended with the Scotland County starters on the bench for the rest of the night.
Cheyenne Wardís jumper with 1:13 on the clock accounted for the lone points of the third period for the Lady Tigers.
For good measure, the home team scored the first eight points of the final quarter before Kelsey Fraizer scored on an offensive rebound that made the score 48-25. SCR-I never could put a run together down the stretch as Knox County rolled to the 54-29 victory.
Oldham led Scotland County (2-4) with six points. Johnston and Melissa Cotton finished with five points.
Knox County (2-2) was led by Tessa Ramer with 19 points.
