Lady Indian Comeback Bid Comes Up Short

Isi Acklie looks for points

Lady Indians put pressure on Canton

Turnovers plagued the Clark County Lady Indians as they returned to action at Canton on Thursday night, January 2.  For their part, Canton played three quarters of consistent ball.

The Lady Indians also misses shot after shot early, and were nearly held to a single field goal in the first quarter, but nailed a second bucket late to trail 13-4.

Clark County’s second quarter didn’t go much better, and the Lady Indians trailed by 21 points late in the half.  They managed to cut the halftime lead to 29-10, and headed into the locker room to regroup.

And regroup they did.  Clark County was like a different team in the third quarter, defensively holding Canton to only four points, while scoring 13 of their own, as they cut the Tiger lead to 31-23.  

Clark County continued the fight, and cut Canton’s lead to just two points late in the fourth quarter.  They missed several shots to tie the game with less than ten seconds left, and a last second “Hail Mary” shot went off the rim, giving Canton the 44-41 win.

Clark County shot only 24 percent from the field, and committed 21 fouls, versus only four for Canton

Brooklyn Howe led Clark County with 11 points, eight in the final quarter.  Madison Kauth and Jade Ross followed with eight points each, and Kiara Brunk scored seven.  Alexis Ellison scored four, and Isi Acklie had three points.
