Lady Lions win Spartan Bowl 49-33

Although it was a physically rough game, the Lady Lions pounced on the Connersville Lady Spartans Saturday afternoon at Spartan Bowl, winning 49-33.

Saturday was Coaches vs. Cancer day at Connersville. The Lady Spartans wore pink and white uniforms and coaches from both teams wore special pink t-shirts to support the cause. Cancer survivors were asked to stand and were applauded before the game. Money raised during the game was donated to the Fayette County Cancer Society. After the tribute to cancer survivors, the lights went down and both teams raced across the court and prepared for battle.

The Lady Lions fought hard through the entire time and stayed on top with the Lady Spartans trailing the entire game, not once taking the lead.

In the first quarter the Lady Lions led the way with 13 points while Lady Spartans trailed with a mere nine. Brooke Ash led the first quarter with five points, Campbell added four free-throws and Makayla Hebert with two points. In the second quarter, Campbell led with five points and Niehoff added four more to make the second quarter score 22-12. Campbell continued her trek to the free throw line throughout the game, connecting on 16 straight (evening the school record held by Amanda (Stull) Garza from 2004-05) and 23 total in the game (breaking Jennifer Marlow’s record of 19 from 1994-95).

“We need to take care of the ball and limit turnovers; we need to get the shooters open a little bit better,” Coach Melissa Marlow during halftime.

During the third quarter defense was tough and the game got physical. Campbell made all six of her free throws and Makayla Herbert hit a pair as all the Rushville scoring came from the charity stripe in the third frame. Rushville led 30-17 after three quarters.

Fourth quarter was an intense time for both teams.
