Lady Eagles trip Borden in SAC

Lanesville held Southern Athletic Conference rival Borden to 29-percent shooting Thursday night to defeat the Lady Braves 53-45. The Lady Eagles now are 2-0 in the conference.
‘The game was very fast paced; we pressed them the entire game,’ Lady Eagle coach Bill Krammes said. ‘We did a really good job of controlling the tempo, something I think that we need to do the rest of the season.’
Lanesville improved its shooting against Borden, connecting on 6 of 22 3-point attempts. Also on offense, Lanesville committed just eight turnovers.
Brittney Barnickle, Beth Glomb and Amanda Johnson all had solid overall performances, said Krammes. Glomb and Johnson both reached double figures in rebounds. Krammes added that Brittany Gayhart, Erin Dorgay and Allison Wolfe anchored the team with solid defensive play.
Lanesville is still looking to develop its bench play, the coach said, something they will need to do to make a run at the SAC.
Glomb led the team with 18 points against Borden, along with Barnickle’s 15.
Coming up for Lanesville, the Lady Eagles will host South Central tomorrow (Thursday) and will welcome Cannelton to Lanesville for Homecoming on Saturday.
‘The girls are playing really hard, and I am proud of their efforts,’ Krammes said. ‘We still have a long way to go, but I am happy with where we are this early in the season.’
