Wednesday, February 1, 2012

COFFEYVILLE -- Fort Scott High's girls are 2-0 in Southeast Kansas League play after beating Coffeyville, 48-29, here Tuesday night.

A 16-1 run in the first quarter in which five player scored gave the Tigers (2-0 SEK, 5-9 overall) control. They led 16-5 after one period and pushed it to 23-9 by the 3-minute mark of the second.

Brianne Lawrence scored 6 points of a 9-2 run that capped the first half and saw Fort Scott go into the locker room up 32-16.

The Tiger offense cooled off in the third period, scoring just 4 points. But the Golden Tornado (0-2, 3-11) were still unable to get their offense going and trailed by 14 points, 36-22 going into the final stanza.

Lawrence scored 21 points -- 9 of those in the second quarter -- to lead the Tigers. Abby Herkelman led Coffeyville with 11. They were the game's only double-figure scorers.

Fort Scott made 18 of 46 field-goal attempts, 39 percent, and 11 of 17 free-throw tries. Coffeyville shot just 24 percent from the floor on 12 of 50 and succeeded on only 4 of 21 free-throw attempts -- 1 of 8 in the fourth quarter.
