Rushville halts Quakers

On Saturday, the fourth quarter was huge for the Lady Lions. Rushville out-scored the Lady Quakers 18-6 in the final eight minutes to rally for the 65-56 victory.

The Lady Lions led after one quarter 13-10. Cook’s 3-pointer gave Rushville its first lead and back-to-back buckets by Dougherty and Niehoff capped the first quarter.

A bucket by Plainfield’s Katie Robertson gave the Lady Quakers an 18-17 lead. Plainfield would not trail the rest of the half. The lead grew to four, but the Lady Lions would not let the Lady Quakers break away. Lilly Cramer free throws tied the game at 27-27 before Plainfield scored the final four points of the half to lead 31-27.

Dougherty’s 3-pointer and two buckets by Campbell had the Lady Lions back in front early in the third quarter. The Lady Quakers retook the lead on a Mackenzie Jeffries bucket and eventually pushed the lead to five at 50-45 on a Robertson score. Cook’s bucket ended the third quarter with the Lady Lions trailing by just three, 50-47.
