8th Graders Beat Richmond; 6-1 on Year
February 18, 2009 - Knightstown’s eighth grade girls basketball team got a huge effort from Lauren Shields while rolling to an impressive 29-26 victory over Richmond Test Middle School. The victory improved the girls’ record to 6-1 on the season.
Shields was almost unconscious with a superb all-around game. She scored a game-high 15 points and drilled three treys in the contest. Shields completed a double-double by collecting 10 steals and also had a team-high seven rebounds. To cap a brilliant performance, Shields also had three assists.
Knightstown started out slowly by spotting Richmond an early 8-6 lead. But the Lady Panthers held the Lady Red Devils to just one field goal in the second quarter and pulled ahead 12-10 at the halftime break.
Knightstown then exploded for 15 points in the third quarter to increase their lead to 27-21. The girls then committed an uncharacteristic number of turnovers over the final six minutes, but held on for the win anyway. Knightstown had 27 turnovers in the contest.
Libbie Fender also provided a great effort for coach Cary Ellis. She scored six points and collected five steals. Megan McRoberts scored four points and dished out two assists.
Maddy Smith scored two points and had five steals, while Samantha Kuhn had two points and Bryanne Loveall had three rebounds and played outstanding defense. The girls traveled to Morristown Tuesday night and visit Eastern Hancock Thursday. The next, and last, home game for Knightstown will be a make-up contest against Shenandoah on March 5.
