Eastern Greene ladies lose at home

Wednesday, January 2, 2013

In a game added to their schedule after having the Toby Yoho Classic postponed by the weather, Eastern Greene hosted Forest Park in a high school girls basketball contest Wednesday afternoon.

The Lady Rangers, who were scheduled to play against the Lady T-Birds in the Toby Yoho Classic, defeated Eastern Greene 38-27.

"The big thing that killed us was offensive rebounding," said EGHS coach Zack Stevens. "We gave up 14 offensive rebounds in the first half.

"That just is unacceptable."

Eastern Greene fell behind 20-12 at intermission before Forest Park pushed its advantage to 33-17 after three quarters.

Sierra New led EGHS with eight points. Amy Todd scored seven points. Brittany Martin added four points.

"We played well in spurts," said Stevens. "We showed we can attack the basket, but we have to be able to do it for four quarters."

Forest Park improved to 5-6.

The Lady Rangers won the junior varsity game 40-21.

The Lady Thunderbirds (5-5) will host Class 2A sectional foe North Knox Saturday, starting with the junior varsity game at 1 p.m.
