To win on the road on back to back nights in the 16th Region is not an easy task. Somehow the Bath County LadyCats were able to do that on Thursday night in Sandy Hook, KY. Powered by a big 3rd quarter run, the LadyCats were able to work leave Elliott County with a 62-42 road win, giving them a 3-game winning streak.
With only an 8-point halftime lead, the LadyCats changed to a box and one defense after halftime to slow down the strong guard play of freshman, Abby Adkins. Coach Roger Newton made the change and placed junior Abigail Henderson on Adkins. The move proved to be valuable in shutting down the Elliott County scoring threat as Bath County outscored the Lady Lions 22-9 and were able to convert several turnovers into points to take a commanding lead into the fourth quarter.
The winners were lead by junior guard, McKenna Moore, with 25 points, including 11 of 11 at the free throw line. Moore also chipped in 6 rebounds, 3 steals, and 2 assists. Abigail Henderson not only played terrific defense on Elliott’s Adkins, but was able to contribute 11 points on 5 of 5 shooting from inside the arc. Henderson added 5 rebounds and and 1 assist. Senior Kelsey Roberson played an oustanding game as well for Bath County with 11 points, 7 rebounds and 1 assist.
Additional scoring for Bath County was provided by senior, Paige Faudere, with 5 points, junior Kylen Messer with 5 points, and sophomore Morgan McNabb with 5 points. The LadyCats return home on Saturday afternoon to take on Rose Hill Christian (10-6) in a varsity only matinee contest at 4 p.m.
