UPDATED: Eastern Greene pushes record to 3-1

Monday, November 19, 2012

The Eastern Greene High School girls basketball team earned two wins in the last four days to push its record to 3-1.

On Friday night, EGHS defeated host Trinity Lutheran 46-39 in a varsity-only game.

In another road game Monday night, the Lady Thunderbirds outscored Cloverdale 16-9 in the fourth quarter to come away with a 47-41 victory.

Amy Todd (13) and Alex Dubois (11) combined for 24 rebounds against the Lady Clovers.

"This was a sloppy, ugly game," said EGHS coach Zack Stevens. "Neither team did a good job of taking care of the ball.

"The girls showed a lot of pride and determination. They were very resilient. They could have folded up the tent when we got down nine points, but they never quit."

Sierra New hit three, 3-pointers and led the winners with 17 points.

The Lady Thunderbirds also won the junior varsity game.

At Lutheran, Todd and New each scored nine points to lead a balanced attack.

"Lutheran had a very good record last year and is a good program," said Stevens. "You could see it in the eyes of the girls and read their body language that they were ready to play. They played with a lot of pride and determination.

"We had a very balanced scoring effort. We also did a good job boxing out and rebounding."

The Lady Thunderbirds will be off until Thursday, Nov. 29 when they play a Southwestern Indiana Athletic Conference game at Linton-Stockton. Eastern Greene is 1-0 in league play.
