H.S. HOOPS: Lady Pirates rally for win at Campbellsvile, Pirates fall to Jackson County

RICHMOND — The Berea Community Lady Pirates picked up a big win on the road Tuesday, 47-42, over Campbellsville.

Berea had to come from behind in the fourth quarter after Campbellsville rallied from a 23-12 halftime deficit to lead 30-26 after three quarters.

Berea went to its bread-and-butter, full-court pressing defense in the fourth quarter to outscore the Lady Eagles 21-12 to pick up the hard-fought win.

“We got off to a good start, but in the third quarter they threw a junk defense at our girls and it took us a little while to recognize what to do against it,” Berea coach Jerry Bingham said. “Then in the fourth quarter we started pressing and got the tempo of the game up a little bit and that kind of played into our hands and we got the lead back and hit some free throws down the stretch.”

Jordan Sandefur led the way for the Lady Pirates with 22 points. Chase Fain added seven points, while Taylor Powell had six points off the bench, Victoria Sexton had five points and Ashley Sizemore had three points and a team-high eight rebounds.

“We had a bad third quarter, but we’ll take the win, especially on somebody else’s home court,” Bingham said.

The Lady Pirates will be back in action Thursday at Bath County.

Jackson County 68, Berea 38

The Pirates fell to Jackson County on the road Tuesday, 68-38.

Jackson County jumped out to a 14-9 lead at the end of the first quarter. Berea held its own in the second quarter matching Jackson’s 16 points, but trailed at the half 30-25.

The second half wasn’t nearly as good for the Pirates as they were outscored by Jackson County 16-5 in the third quarter and 22-8 in the fourth quarter to pull away for the big win.

Daniel Hubbard led the way for the Pirates with eight points, followed by Dustin Kates with seven, Austin Warford and Shyiem Alexander with six points each, Trey Terrill had five points and Eli Woodie and Bradley Adkins had had three points each.

The Pirates will be back in action Saturday in the Bluegrass Shootout.
