Lady Lions tame Tigers, 74-25

One day after the Lions knocked off visiting Lawrenceburg, the girls’ program meet in Memorial Gym. The surroundings were no better for the Lady Tigers as Rushville improved to 7-1 overall and 2-0 in the EIAC with a 74-25 victory Saturday.

The Lady Tigers took an early 2-1 lead on two Riley Brunner free throws. It was all Rushville from that point. A Keragan Niehoff bucket started a 16-0 run which was capped by a bucket by Kaitlyn Howe. Amber Rox hit a free throw for Lawrenceburg to end the first quarter with the Lady Lions leading 17-3.

Rushville continued to pour it on in the second quarter – outscoring the Lady Tigers 24-7 in the period. Mackenzie Campbell hit a pair from beyond the 3-point arc – the second of which started a 16-1 Rushville run to end the half. Casey Yager’s baseline jumper ended the first 16 minutes with the Lady Lions in control 41-10.

Back-to-back triples by Campbell started the third quarter in which the Lady Lions outscored Lawrenceburg 23-8. Makayla Herbert hit two bombs and Brooke Ash added a 3-pointer as the Lady Lions rolled to a 64-18 lead after three quarters.

Kelsi Ash opened the scoring in the fourth quarter and Kylie Martindale’s traditional three-point play ended the quarter as the Lady Lions posted the 74-25 victory.

Campbell led the Lady Lions with 18 points. Herbert finished with 12 points and Howe had 11. Brunner led the Lady Tigers with 10.

In the first contest, Rushville doubled-up the Lady Tigers 28-14. Rushville allowed just seven points to Lawrenceburg through the first three quarters. Brooklyn Herbert led the Lady Lions with nine points.
