Shoals moves past Lions in the sectional

MONTGOMERY — Loogootee put itself in a position at the end of the first half to win the opening game of the Class A girls basketball sectional against Shoals Tuesday, but took itself out just as quickly in the second.

The Lions led Shoals, 24-23 at the end of the opening half, but Shoals went on a 20-5 third-quarter run and defeated the Lions, 54-41.

Nicole Harder led the Jug Rox charge with nine of her game-high 17 points in a quarter that witnesssed the Lions go the first four minutes of the second half without a point.

The 24-23 Loogootee lead turned into a 34-34 Shoals lead before Gabrielle Ritchey got Loogootee¹s first points of the half with 4:03 remaining in the quarter.

Harder scored five of her nine points in the final four minutes, and Shoals found itself with a 43-29 lead.

"We were doing the things we needed to do to win the game in the first half," Loogootee coach Josh Mullis said. "We knew Shoals would come out with intensity in the second half and we felt like we had to match them. We went back to some old habits that we had early in the season, and it kindof caught up with us and it snowballed." Ritchey got the first three points of the fourth quarter for Loogootee, but the Jug Rox opened the lead to 51-36 with 4:02 left in the game. Loogootee tried to rally in the final minutes, cutting the lead to 52-41 with two minutes remaining.

The Lions started quickly with an 8-2 lead, but Shoals evened the score at

12 by the quarter. Shoals then opened a 19-14 lead in the first 3:14 of the second quarter, but it was the Lions who rallied, taking the 24-23 lead at halftime on a Macey Baxter bucket with 10 seconds left.

Ritchey led Loogootee with 10 points. Baxter and Taylor Hayes scored eight each.

Ashton Allbright scored 14 for Shoals who now plays Vincennes Rivet Friday at 6 p.m.
