H.S. BASKETBALL: Lady Indians fall in Paris, Pirates, Lady Pirates drop tournament games

RICHMOND — The Lady Indians (7-4) couldn’t overcome a poor shooting performance Saturday at the Bourbon County Holiday Tournament in Paris.

Madison Central shot 35 percent from the field and suffered a 56-46 loss to Presentation. Shadae Bosley had 17 points, 13 rebounds and three blocks, while Haley Christian had 10 points, four rebounds and two steals and Lindsay Johns had 10 points, three rebounds and three steals.

The Lady Indians fall into the consolation bracket and will take on either Dixie Heights or Harrison County at 3 p.m. today.

“We just didn’t shoot it well and we just didn’t score,” Central coach Robbie Cooksey said. “When we don’t shoot well from the outside, then we can’t get it inside and that makes it tough on us.”

Central was two-of-19 from three-point range and was also just six-of-14 from the free throw line.

Central had a 30-28 lead at halftime, but scored only three points in the third quarter.

Bailey O’Bryan had seven points, three assists and two rebounds and Kasi Schneid had two points and one rebound.

In the title game on Saturday night, the Lady Pirates lost to Sheldon Clark.

Berea (4-5) didn’t score in the first quarter and went into halftime down 24-5. They lost the game, 53-35.

In the win over Wolfe County, Horn had 18 points, Fain had 15 points, including three three-pointers, while Sexton and Sandefur had 11 points each and Conner Coyle added six points.

Berea was up 15-8 after the first quarter and took a 33-15 lead into halftime.

The Lady Pirates opened play in the tournament on Friday with a win over Prestonsburg.

Sandefur had 22 points, Horn had 20 points, Fain had seven points, Miranda Montgomery had 12 rebounds and six points, Cristina Morgan had five points and Sexton added four points.

Berea was up 17-8 after the first quarter, had a 30-20 lead at halftime and was up 47-32 after three quarters.

Prestonsburg out-scored the Lady Pirates, 30-17, in the final quarter.
