H.S. BASKETBALL: Southern comes up just short in opener

RICHMOND — The Lady Eagles faced a tough test Monday on the road in their season opener — and they were up to the challenge.

Madison Southern had a chance to tie the game in the closing seconds before falling to last year’s 10th Region champ Montgomery County, 58-56, in Mt. Sterling. Briana Lanham led the Lady Eagles with 22 points, 20 rebounds and two blocks despite missing most of the first half because of foul trouble.

“I thought we played extremely well against a good team, especially for the first game of the season,” Southern coach Summer Simmons said. “I was really proud of them.”

Montgomery County’s biggest lead of the game was six points. The Lady Indians had a five-point advantage in the fourth quarter before Southern battled back.

Junior guard Kristen Hayes drove into the lane as the clock was expiring, but her last-second lay-up wouldn’t fall.

Southern was just 10-of-18 from the free-throw line and also missed a couple of easy putbacks.

Kelley Freeman had 12 points on four three-pointers, Hayes had 10 points and five rebounds, Rachel Ramey had six points and five rebounds, Kelle Scott and Callie Cook had three points each and Samantha Parms had six rebounds.

Southern is set to return to action Thursday at Garrard County.
