CC, LHS win openers; Lady Rebels move to 3-1

Corydon Central rallied from a 10-point halftime deficit to knock off host Perry Central on Friday night, 53-50.
Playing without the services of 6-0 junior Stannye Wolfe, the Lady Panthers trailed at the first two stops, 10-7 and 28-18.
Corydon’s lone senior, 6-0 forward Dana Beaven, put in nine of her team-high 18 points in the third period, where the visitors pulled ahead, 35-34, heading into the final frame.
‘They were ready to play and played real hard,’ Corydon coach Michael Uhl said. ‘Give them credit.’
After Beaven, junior Megan Bates put in 12 points and sophomore Bethany Shewmaker tossed in 11 in the winning effort.
The Lady Commodores (0-1) were paced by their star junior guard, Lindsey Ransome, who had a game-high 19 points.
Corydon returns to action this Friday night when it hosts No. 5-ranked (Class 2A) Charlestown in the Mid-Southern Conference opener for both teams.
There’ll be no rest for the weary as the Lady Panthers travel to No. 10-ranked (Class 4A) New Albany on Saturday.
— South Central suffered a 10-point setback to Charlestown to open the Southern Indiana Tip-off Tournament on Nov. 8, then ripped off three consecutive victories heading into this week’s battle against Springs Valley.
Charlestown knocked off the Lady Rebels, 72-62, en route to the Tip-Off title.
The loss was two-fold for South Central, however, as senior guard Samantha Troutman fractured a bone in her right elbow in the second quarter of the game.
She was undercut while attempting a lay-up and broke her elbow trying to avoid landing on her head.
She’ll likely be out anywhere from two to six weeks.
The game was a coming out party for Troutman’s teammates, however.
Freshman Brittany Schoen put in 24 points and sank three triples, Megan Zumar had 15 points and Jenna Kingsley added 10. Junior point guard Sarah Pease chipped in six points as well. Troutman scored eight.
On Tuesday, South bounced back to defeat Providence, 65-45.
In that one, Schoen pumped in a career-high 30 points, followed by 12 from Kingsley, 10 from Troutman (before her injury) and seven from Kaela Orwick.
South traveled to Trinity Lutheran on Friday night and skinned the Lady Cougars, 72-50.
Schoen had 28, Zumar punched in 16 and Kingsley scored 11 in the win.
Wrapping things up on Saturday, South dealt Clarksville a 60-48 loss.
Kingsley led the way with 19 points and Schoen had 18. Orwick tacked on 10 points as well.
‘I was hoping to get some scoring out of (Kingsley), but not like she’s been doing,’ Lady Rebel coach Randall Schoen said. ‘Brittany sat out with foul trouble for a lot of the game, and Jenna stepped up big and hit some big threes for us through a span there where we really needed it.
‘All of the girls are playing really well overall.’
South Central hosts Springs Valley this Friday night at 6 p.m. and will battle county rival Lanesville next Wednesday night in another 6 p.m. tipoff.
— Lanesville won its opener over Cannelton on Friday, 73-52, but dropped a 60-32 decision to Paoli on Saturday.
Maegan VanHoose poured in 27 points and Heather Schaefer added 19 in the victory. Allison Horton came through with eight points as well for the Lady Eagles.
Lanesville travels to Christian Academy tomorrow in a 6 p.m. start.
