Scoring Shortage in First Half Leads to League Loss
Just two Lady Tigers got into the scorebook in the first half Tuesday night in Kahoka and the scoring drought was too much for Scotland County to overcome as the Indians held on for a 44-29 Tri-Rivers Conference win.
A three pointer by Skyler Alderton and hoop in the paint for Ashley Tague were lone tallies for Scotland County in the opening eight minutes as the home squad led 8-5.
The second period was the Lady Tigers downfall. SCR-I managed just two field goals, one each by Alderton and Tague as Clark County went on a 15-4 run to blow the game open and lead 23-9 at halftime.
That proved to be the difference in the contest as the two squads traded buckets in the final 16 minutes.
Anna Duley hit a three pointer in the third quarter but SCR-I struggled at the free throw line, hitting just 50% as Clark County extended the lead to 37-19.
Tague and Jamie Shaw combined for 10 points in the fourth period but it was not enough as Clark County held on for the 44-29 win.
The loss dropped the lady Tigers to 11-7 overall and 2-2 in TRC. Tague finished with 13 points to top Scotland County. Cady Flood led three Lady Indians in double-digits with 10 points.
