The Lady Panthers hung on against visiting Covington Latin to win their third straight game Tuesday, 58-56.

Head coach Paul Stone said his team did a nice job on offense, especially working the ball inside.

Carroll built a 51-33 lead at the end of the third quarter. The Lady Panthers tried to slow down and run some clock, but that wasn’t their style. They committed some turnovers and Covington Latin hit a few key 3-pointers down the stretch to tie up the game 52-52 with two minutes to go.

But the home team re-grouped and hit their free throws down the stretch to pull out a victory.

Makena Kindoll led the way with 20 points, hitting 3-6 from two-point and 3-6 from 3-point range. Lauren Moore recorded another double-double, 14 points and 12 rebounds, and Miranda Groseclose also hit double-figures with 12 points.

Tatum McIntyre scored six points and pulled down six rebounds, second on the team, while Kristen “Doodle” Amick scored four points and Kirsten Arvin scored two points.
