The Lady Panthers scored just nine points in the second half, falling 56-33 to East Jessamine Saturday at home.

“East Jessamine was a very good team,” head coach Paul Stone said in an e-mail. “We held them below their 74 points per game average, but were unable to convert some of our shots in the second half.”

The Lady Panthers handled the press well early on, which led to some easy shots, Stone said. However, the team failed to make a run in the second half. “We never could score two possessions in a row,” he said.

The Lady Jaguars improved to 3-0, while the Lady Panthers fell to 2-2. Emma Young led all scorers with 19 points. Sarah Rainwater and Savannah Carr also hit double-figures with 12 and 10 points, respectively.

Carroll leading scorer junior Lauren Moore was virtually shutout, hitting one bucket each quarter for eight points.

Senior Makena Kindoll led the team with 13 points.

Senior Kayla Williamson and sophomore Miranda Groseclose each contributed four points, while Tatum McIntyre and Chasity Burgin each scored two points.
