Clark County (3-4, 1-0) limited Knox County to only seven points during a 50-7 Tri-Rivers Conference girls’ win at Knox County. The December 20, 2007 contest saw the Lady Indians execute more quickly and better overall on both ends of the court. Clark County did not allow more than two points defensively in any quarter.
The Lady Eagles (3-4, 0-2) turned the basketball over 15 times during the first half, and trailed 28-3 at intermission. Clark County held a solid rebound advantage. The Lady Indians finished their scoring chances, and Knox County was unable to find their scoring touch.
Amanda Winters led all scorers with 12 Clark County points. Megan Wilson was in double figures with ten Clark County points. "We came out and played very good defense," said Clark County coach Phillip Klett. "We haven’t always done that this season. We got in the right frame of mind tonight and played well for four quarters "
Knox County sank only three of 20 two point attempts. The Lady Eagles were 0-9 from three point land and 1-6 from the free throw line. The Lady Eagles’ seven point offensive output was probably the lowest varsity girls’ point total since 1989.
"You have to have confidence, you have to believe in yourself and you can’t come out playing scared," said Knox County coach John Weaver. "You can’t come out thinking that it is Clark County, or Canton or whoever it is that if you have lost to them the last 16 years that’s the way it’s going to be this year."
