Cold Shooting Night Sinks SCR-I in Loss to Lady Eagles



Chelsea Wood puts up the shot over a pair of Knox County defenders.

With weather conditions worsening outside, the forecasted blizzard started a bit early inside the gym on Friday night in Memphis as Scotland County struggled through a cold shooting night allowing Knox County to capture a 55-38 win.

Neither team got off to a hot start offensively. After falling behind 4-0, Randi Slaughter knocked down a jumper and Chelsea Wood tied the contest with a score on an offensive rebound. Neither team could buy a bucket much of the remainder of the first period as Knox took an 8-5 lead.

Sophia Hoskinson came off the bench to give SCR-I a spark, hitting a pair of field goals early in the second period. Her second bucket left the Lady Tigers trailing 15-11 with 4:49 to play in the first half.

Knox responded with a 7-0 run before Calesse Bair scored on an offensive rebound with 50 seconds remaining to make the score 22-13. She added another score but a three-pointer by Knox at the buzzer pushed the margin to 27-15 at the break.

The Lady Tigers began to find the range on the third quarter. Slaughter drilled a three-pointer. Wood scored in the paint before Slaughter was fouled on a shot from behind the arc. She sank all three free throws and then hit another three-pointer to pull SCR-I within 32-27.

But once again Knox County answered in even bigger fashion, scoring nine unanswered points to blow the game open before an SCR-I timeout with 1:06 on the clock.

Bair hit a three-pointer to close out the quarter with SCR-I trailing by 13.

Bair again found the range from behind the arc early in the fourth period, but SCR-I was unable to make a run as Knox County closed out the 55-38 win.

SCR-I dropped to 4-3 on the year and 1-2 in the Tri-Rivers Conference. Bair led the team in scoring with 14 points. Slaughter finished with 12 points and Wood added eight points.
