Slow Start Stalls SCR-Iís Bid To Beat Clark County

A 14-2 run to close the first period proved to be too much for Scotland County to overcome as the Lady Indians of Clark County picked up a key Tri-Rivers Conference victory over SCR-I on February 3rd in Memphis.

Melissa Cotton knocked down a three pointer to start the game and Kelsey Frazier scored on an offensive rebound to put the Lady Tigers ahead 5-4 with 5:11 left in the first period.

But Clark County outscored the Lady Tigers 14-2 over the next five minutes including a three pointer at the buzzer by Caitlyn Davis to make it 18-7.

Both teams struggled to put points on the board early in the second period. Valerie Oldham scored in the paint and Deidra Dochterman knocked down a couple free throws for the Lady Tigers. The only other points came on a bucket by Ashley Tague. But the SCR-I defense held Clark County to just eight points in the same time span, holding the deficit to 26-13 at the intermission.

Tague opened the third period with a steal and a fastbreak score for Scotland County. But Clark County answered with a 6-0 run to make it 32-15.

Cotton knocked down a three pointer for a little momentum for SCR-I and Oldham had a pair of scores to close the third period. However SCR-I still trailed 35-20.

Cotton caught fire in the fourth quarter. She drilled a pair of three pointers and scored 10 points down the stretch. But SCR-I was unable to come up with the necessary defensive stops as Clark County rolled on to the 49-38 victory.

Cotton finished with 17 points to lead all scorers. Tague added seven points and Oldham finished with six points for Scotland County, which fell to 12-8 on the year and 1-4 in conference play.

Britni Bertelli led a balanced Clark County attack with 12 points. Brooke Wheeler had 11 points and Cady Flood had 10 points for the Indians who improved to 8-10 and 3-2 in league play.
