Canton Proves Worthy of #1 Ranking With 57-25 Defeat of Lady Tigers

Heading into Tuesday nights contest in Canton, Scotland County had its work cut out to try and upset the #1 squad in Missouri class 2 basketball. SCR-I clamped down defensively on two of the three Lady Tigers leading scorers in Lindsay Lillard and Jessie Logsdon.

Unfortunately the teams leading scorer, Tori Niemann was virtually unstoppable as Canton rolled past SCR-I 57-25. The junior forward single-handedly outscored the entire Scotland County roster, pouring in 26 points as Canton won its 23rd straight game.

Niemann poured in 12 points in the opening frame but the team defense was even more impressive, as Scotland County was held to just two field goals in the games first eight minutes, allowing Canton to jump on top 17-4.

SCR-Is offense never got on track in the first half. The Lady Tigers went without a field goal the entire second period. The teams three points came on free throws by Valerie Oldham and Deidra Dochterman.

Ashely Tague connected on a three pointer and Kelsey Frazier had a pair of field goals in the third period, but Canton countered with its biggest offensive push of the night, outscoring the Lady Tigers 22-11 in the third period, to lead 53-18.

Skyler Alderton and Cali Holt hit field goals for SCR-I in the fourth period but the outcome was already decided as Canton remained #1 in the state with a convincing 57-25 victory.

Niemann led Canton (23-1) with 26 points. Logsdon finished with nine points and Lillard was held to just six points. SCR-I (13-11) was led in scoring by Kaitlin Caldwell and Kelsey Frazier with six points each. Leading scorer Melissa Cotton did not play in the game.
