Lady Miners fall to No. 9 Barr-Reeve

Thursday, January 31, 2013

Class A No. 9 Barr-Reeve extended its winning streak to four games with a 56-31 victory over Linton-Stockton in a non-conference high school girls basketball game at Linton Thursday night.

The Lady Vikings improved to 16-4 while the Lady Miners concluded the regular season at 3-18.

Jenna Knepp paced the winners, who led 25-7 at the half, with 18 points.

Senior Joie Gadberry scored 15 points to pace the Lady Miners. Brilee Parker added eight points.

There was no junior varsity game because the Lady Miners are missing several players due to injury and illness.

"It was a tough night," said L-S coach Brad McKinney. "Joie had a very solid night playing her last home game of her career. We will miss her next year, she has been very important to us over the past four years. She has been hampered some as late with that thumb injury, but she bounced back tonight. It is still bothering her but she really played through it tonight.

"We were shorthanded. Mercedes (Shafford) and Maddie (Robison) both suffered injuries in our last game against North Central and could not go tonight. Mercedes was putting together a nice second half of the season and we miss her. Maddie had been giving us some really quality minutes as of late. It is a shame they couldn't go. Avaree (Dunn) wasn't able to go again tonight. She is making progress but just isn't back to game speed yet."

Linton-Stockton will meet South Knox at 7:30 p.m. Wednesday at the Class 2A Sullivan Sectional.
