Shania Metcalf and Shalee  Pollard worked themselves free underneath the basket and Perkins County lit the scoreboard with 10 points before Creek Valley responded in the Lady Plainsmen’s 52-28 win last Tuesday night (Feb. 8) in Grant.
Senior guard Jessi Day stroked six-consecutive free throws for her Lady Plainsmen, and stirred in three hard-charging field goals to lead all scorers with 12 points.
Day scored two of those free throws after time expired in the first half, with no rebounders surrounding her.
Shania Metcalf threw down two more baskets from right underneath and ran the second quarter score to 18-5 in favor of the home team; she finished with eight points.
Leading 30-11 just after halftime, Tanya Metcalf easily put away an offensive inbounds pass as part of 10 more Perkins County points in the third quarter, which ended 40-21 in their favor.
Tanya Metcalf totaled 10 points for Perkins County, and Shalee Pollard strung together five points.
Tori Osler made sure that her Lady Plainsmen did not “let off the gas,” scoring four of her six points in the final quarter. Osler lobbed a shot from the middle of the lane and pulled up nicely at high speed to make sure on another shot.
Freshman Courtney Lyon spun from the left side of the foul line, shot, and “swish” for her first varsity points late in the game.
Freshman forward Shania Brown hit five of the six free throws she took and also struck for three field goals to lead the Lady Storm with 11 points.
Brown got little other help as Creek Valley drew no closer than 12-5 in the first quarter and the Lady Storm’s season record dropped to 1-15.
