North Knox holds off Lady T-Birds

Saturday, January 5, 2013

In a battle of Class 2A sectional foes, North Knox pulled away late to defeat host Eastern Greene 56-46 in a high school girls basketball game Saturday afternoon.

"They are a very good team and have a very good program," EGHS coach Zack Stevens said of North Knox. "But we gave them everything they wanted today.

"We battled back and tied things in the third quarter. They made some plays late to get the win. I was so proud of the way our girls played today. They played smart, hard and were aggressive. You don't like to lose, but you can take a loss when you team plays like this."

Stevens said that rebounding was a big difference as North Knox led 31-22 at intermission.

"We gave up 14 offensive rebounds in the first half and only three in the second," he said. "We did not do a very good job of boxing out early.

"But we did a much better job in the second half. We played hard and I thought we played good defense despite giving up 56 points."

Sierra New led EGHS with 10 points, one more than Brittany Martin.

Maria Gugliotta had 16 points and Lauren Charlton also had 16 points as the pair topped the Lady Warriors in scoring.

The Lady Thunderbirds lost the jv game 25-12.

Eastern Greene will host Mitchell Thursday.
