Cougars win sixth straight

DUGGER — There won’t be any future trips to Union Dugger High School for the North Daviess girls basketball team.

The Class A No. 9 Cougars (14-2, 5-0 Southwestern Indiana) defeated Dugger (5-6, 1-4) 44-28 Thursday night behind 21 points from senior Meghan Knepp in ND’s final trip to the high school that will close at the end of this year for their sixth straight victory.

The game wasn’t the most efficient for the Cougars, but a win is a win. Knepp led the Cougars with eight points in the first quarter points, which included two 3-pointers to give North Daviess an 11-5 lead after eight minutes. Knepp added another trey in the second quarter and Maggie Swartzentruber and Brooke Moore had two points each to give the Cougars an 18-8 lead at the half.

Dugger shot back in the third quarter by outscoring the Cougars 13-11 to cut the deficit to 29-22 heading into the fourth. Hallie Smith, who led Dugger with 11 points made all six free throw attempts in the quarter.

Kolbi Reynolds, Korissa Jobe and Cali Hale added two points each in the third. Knepp scored five more in the quarter to lead North Daviess in scoring for the third straight quarter.

The momentum that Dugger had accumulated with a strong third quarter evaporated quickly in the fourth as North Daviess outscored its opponent 15-6 in the final eight minutes to finish off the 44-28 victory.

Knepp scored her final five points of the game to put the game out of reach. Maggie Swartzentruber finished with six points, Brooke Moore and Abby Cecil had five points each, Taylor Mallett had four and Sabra Smith had three points.

“I have a lot of respect for Benji Boyd and what he does for the Dugger girls program,” said North Daviess coach Ron Knepp.

“With the possibility of not having a high school next year, and not knowing where they will attend school or what teammates they will have next year has to be a very tough situation. We were able to go on the road on a very very cold night and pick up another SWIAC win. The wins during a long season are not always pretty, but we will take the win and move on trying to improve on our focus for a full 32 minutes and placing a value on each possession.”
