Lady Indians top West Union 46-37

It was an all-Adams County girls basketball battle on Dec. 3 at Peebles High School as the Lady Indians welcomed to town the West Union Lady Dragons. The welcome wasn’t exactly a pleasant one, however, as the Peebles girls broke an end of third quarter tie and went on to a 46-37 victory.

After the first quarter of play, the Lady Indians held a slim 10-8 advantage and by halftime, the lead had stretched to 20-15.

West Union bounced back to outscore the home team 17-12 in the third period, on the strength of five three-pointers, leaving the two sides deadlocked with just eight minutes to play. In that final eight minutes, the Lady Indians took control, outscoring the Lady Dragons 14-5 to claim their second consecutive win on the young season. (The Lady Indians made that three in a row with a 34-27 win over Ripley on Dec. 7.)

“We just could not consistently put the ball in the basket tonight,” said West Union head coach Jason Claytor. “We hit those five threes in the third quarter and then cooled off drastically in the fourth quarter. We were just inconsistent all night. I told the girls after the game that we just have to continue to work and get better and that includes me.”

“We get to see Peebles again in a couple of weeks and next time we will try to do some things differently to change the outcome.”

In the win, the Lady Indians shot just 32% from the field and out rebounded their visitors 38-33. The two teams combined to shoot 58 three-pointers in the contest, with Peebles going 7-24 and West Union 9-34.

The now 3-2 Lady Indians will be on the road for their next outing, traveling to Adena on Dec. 10 for a non-conference game. The 2-2 Lady Dragons are at home on Dec. 9 to face Portsmouth West and then on the road the next night to face the top team in the SHAC at the moment, the Lynchburg Lady Mustangs.
