Kahoka-The Clark County Lady Indians had a very slow start to their 2021-22 basketball season.
Facing Scotland County at home on Tuesday evening, the Lady Indians didn’t score for a full five minutes.
Senior Allie Hayden broke the ice for Clark County, hitting the second of two foul shot to put Clark County on the board 8-1.
Hayden dropped in a three pointer less than a minute later to make the scored 12-4, which is where it stood at the end of the first quarter.
Neither team scored in the first five minutes of the second period. With about a minute and a half left, Alexis Ellison hit a three pointer for Clark County. It would be the only Lady Indian points of quarter, and Clark County trailed 22-7 at the half.
Ellison took charge in the third period, scoring just 30 seconds into the period and rolling up 15 point in the quarter, including sinking six of eight attempt at the line. After three quarters, Clark County trailed 39-22.
Ellison added four more points in the fourth quarter, and got help with buckets from Ally Fox, Dettriona Church and Emma Ross, but the Lady Indians’ slow start was too much to overcome against a talented and experienced Scotland County squad.
Ellison led all scorers with 22 points. Hayden and Fox each had four points, and Ross and Church added two points each.
The Lady Indians compete in the Tri-Rivers Classic Tournament at Schuyler County this week.
