The Lady Indians couldn’t hit enough shots to pull off a big-time upset Saturday on the road.
Madison Central shot just 24 percent from the field and suffered a 66-35 loss to No. 1 Marion County in Lebanon. The Lady Knights led by 40 points in the second half as they handed the Lady Indians (2-1) their first loss of the season.
“When you shoot 24 percent, it doesn’t matter who you play,” Central coach Robbie Cooksey said.
Ashton Feldhaus was five-of-18 from the field and finished with 11 points and 12 rebounds. Larryn Brooks was three-of-14 from the field and had eight points. Heather Hinkle had nine points and five rebounds, Shadae Bosley had five points and eight rebounds and Aryn Singer added two points.

Central is set to return to action Friday at the Berea Holiday Classic.

“We didn’t play particularly well,” Berea coach Jerry Bingham said.
June Buchanan had a 14-13 lead after the first quarter, but Berea was up 25-21 at halftime and 38-36 after three quarters.

The Lady Eagles were without two players — Samantha Parms and Callie Cook — and trailed 30-11 at halftime. The loss snaps Southern’s two-game winning streak.
