The Campbell County Cougars went 1 & 1 on its Thursday night trip to Kentucky.
The Lady Cougars jumped on top 12-0 to start the game last night at Lawson Gym just north of Williamsburg at Whitley High. The Lady Colonels came back to make a game of it just before halftime carving into the CCHS lead making it a five-point contest. Campbell began the second-half with a man-to-man defense and shutdown Whitley enroute to a 68 to 44 win. The Lady Colonels never led.
Skylar Boshears was tops for Campbell with 22-points while Haley Comer added 17. Nine of the 10 Lady Cougars that suited up scored. Madison Brady, saddled with early fouls, finished with nine-points, Blair Medley had five and Myra Sexton and Macy Monday scored four each. Emily Ellison chipped in three, Lexy Richardson and Raley Snodgrass had two points apiece.
Campbell received a strong performance from senior big man Bryce Duncan and an impressive long ball night from Nate Walden. Duncan finished with a dozen points and Walden, who suffered an injury to his shooting hand (right) late in the game, led CCHS with 19. Walden rifled-in five Travis Thompson treys.
Whitley led by a dozen early in the second-quarter, but the Cougars made a nice comeback to tie the game late in the third quarter at 34. It capped a 19-9 Campbell run. The Colonels responded with 13-straight points to take their largest lead. Whitley salted the game away by hitting its free throws to claim the 63-54 victory. Unofficially, the Colonels were 13 of 17 from the line while Campbell hit its three free throws.
The Lady Cougars are 8 & 0 while the Cougars search for their first win. It’s a district match-up tonight as the Mavericks host Campbell at Anderson.
