Lady Lions pull away for win at Batesville

BATESVILLE - It was an easy night for one team and a tough one for the other.

The Class 3A, No. 4 ranked Rushville Lady Lions made their trip to Batesville a successful one. Rushville defeated the host Lady Bulldogs 67-37 in varsity basketball action.

The outcome might have been expected by some, but the 30-point difference not so much.

The shorthanded Lady Bulldogs kept the game close early, fell behind in the second quarter and made a brief run early in the third quarter.

Shelby Rupp scored the first two points of the game for the Lady Bulldogs. Unfortunately for coach Darrick Cox’s crew, it would the only lead of the game.

Kelsi Ash countered with a field goal in the paint and later stepped out for a 3-pointer. Sandwiched in between were a pair of free throws by Keragan Niehoff and a field goal by Mackenzie Campbell. The end result was a 9-2 Rushville lead.

A lay-up by Kaitlyn Howe capped the 11-0 run at the 4:45 mark.

The first quarter ended with the Lady Bulldogs trailing 13-8.

The Lady Lions established a comfortable 17-point lead by halftime. Campbell scored seven of the team’s 17 points to take a 30-13 advantage at the midway point.

Back-to-back 3-pointers by Brooke Bradford gave the Lady Bulldogs some life right out of the break. Ash and Campbell answered with baskets for Rushville, but it was a third 3-pointer by Bradford and a field goal by Bailey Baumer that drew the deficit down to 10 points at 34-24.

It would be as close as the Lady Bulldogs would get the rest of the way.

Rushville rattled off 16 straight points to take a 50-24 lead with less than a minute to play in the third period.

The pair of Bradford free throws snapped the scoring drought to make it 50-26.

The Lady Lions built a lead of 63-32 on a Campbell 3-pointer near the halfway point of the final period. A Kaitlyn Howe field goal made it 65-35 just above three minute mark.
