Lady Lions win Spartan Bowl 49-33


With 1:14 remaining on the clock, Connersville head coach Thompson was forced to leave the sideline after receiving a second technical foul. Thompson claimed he was sticking up for his girls.

Howe was fouled twice and made three of four shots. Campbell hit another 10 free throws in the final eight minutes. Keragan Niehoff and Howe had three points each in the fourth quarter and McKenzie Woolston made her two free throws to help seal the Lady Lion victory.

“Our kids showed composure from the free throw line. I think our half-court trap kind of gave them a little bit of problems,” Coach Marlow stated. “We were fundamental in it enough that it gave them a little bit of trouble where they didn’t throw it over the top of us; we are not a very quick team. I am very proud of my kids. Once we spread out and went to the free throw line, we did a nice job. It was a rough game and we knew it would be.”

Leading scores for the game were Campbell with 26 points, Niehoff with nine points and Brooke Ash with five. Niehoff finished the game with 12 rebounds while both Kelsi Ash and Campbell chipped in with six.

The Lady Lions Junior Varsity team also scored a victory over the Lady Spartans with a score of 33-28.

Top scorers were Ellie Sammons with 15, Lilly Cramer with seven then Brooke Niehoff and Kayla Fogg both had five points.

Lady Lions fall at Heritage Christian

On the road at Class 2A No. 1 Heritage Christian, the Lady Lions rallied from an early deficit, but could not get over the hump and fell to the Lady Eagles 50-41.

Heritage Christian led early 7-0. Five points from Mackenzie Campbell and a rebound bucket by Kelsi Ash had the game even at 7-7. Rushville took its first lead on a 3-pointer by Makayla Herbert and following bucket by Keragan Niehoff. Trailing 14-12, Rushville regained the lead on a Kaitlyn Howe triple and after another Lady Eagle bucket, Howe hit from long range again. Heritage Christian scored the final points of the quarter as the teams were even 18-18.
