 Stifling Defense Keys JV Girls to 32-5 Win Over Tri

February 4, 2009 -  Knightstown’s junior varsity girls basketball team was a merciless bunch Saturday afternoon against the Tri High Lady Titans.

The young Lady Panthers allowed Tri to stick around in the first quarter, and then walloped the visitors by shutting them out over the final three periods in a convincing 32-5 blowout win.

The Lady Titans got a three-pointer from Anna Spurgin and another bucket from Krysten Marshall in the first quarter. Tri didn’t score again for the rest of the game.

Knightstown answered in that opening frame with three points from Haley Morgan, and buckets by Sarah Whiteside and Mahaley Hagy. Megan Chew added a free throw and the Lady Panthers led 8-5 at the end of the first quarter.

But that opening frame three-point deficit for Tri was nothing more than a big tease. Knightstown went on a 10-0 second-quarter run to up the margin to 18-5 at the half. Chew scored four points, Hagy had three, Hannah Smith nailed a bucket and Whiteside a free throw in the second frame.

In the third quarter Knightstown outscored Tri 6-0, and two of those field goals came on assists. Chew scored on a slick pass from Morgan, and Chew added another bucket on a great pass from Hagy. A rebound basket by Hagy increased the Lady Panther advantage to 26-5.

Whiteside scored four points in the final frame, first getting a lay-up off of a nice steal, and moments later scoring on a nifty slicing drive inside. Chew hit again to cap the Knightstown scoring effort.

Chew was the leading scorer with 11 points. Whiteside and Hagy both added seven and Morgan had three. Spurgin had three and Marshall two for Tri High. The junior varsity girls completed their season with a road game at Waldron Tuesday night.
