 Junior Varsity Girls Clobber Morristown 43-7

January 23, 2008 - After a slow start, the Knightstown junior varsity girls basketball team did exactly what they were supposed to do against a sub par Morristown team Monday night. They completely shut down the Yellow Jackets in the second quarter, forging a 24-2 halftime lead, and then cruised to a 43-7 victory.

The young Lady Panthers shut out Morristown 18-0 in the second quarter after leading just 6-2 after one period. Miranda White, Cassie Hammer and Brittany Jolley canned fielders in the opening quarter, but the 6-2 lead was unacceptable after six minutes of play.

Knightstown then scored 18 unanswered points and the game was in the bag at the intermission. Freshman Megan Chew, who has been extremely accurate from the free throw line all season, nailed eight-of-10 in the game and scored seven of her team-high 12 points in the second quarter. During that scoring run Ashkia Howard and Hannah Smith scored five and four points, respectively, to help the girls go ahead by 22 at the half.

Morristown managed five third-quarter points, but the Lady Panthers responded with three more from Chew and buckets by Smith and Howard. Haley Morgan opted for a jumper instead of an easy dunk shot, and Knightstown increased its lead to 34-7 heading into the fourth quarter.

The Yellow Jackets, who managed just two field goals in the entire game, did not score in the final period. Knightstown got four points from Taylor Webber, two more apiece from Smith and Chew, and a free throw from Hammer to tally their final markers.

Chew led the way with 12 points, while Smith scored eight and Howard had seven. Webber finished with five, Morgan scored four, Hammer three, Jolley and White had two. In the second and fourth quarters, Knightstown outscored Morristown 27-0.

The Lady Panther junior varsity will be in action again next Tuesday when Waldron visits for a 6 p.m. tip-off.
