NEW MARKET — The Southmont Mounties went into their Sagamore Conference girls basketball game against Western Boone looking to end an 18-game losing streak to the Stars, but were unable to find success in a 66-37 defeat.
The Mounties received the tip, but they turned it over right away to senior Madison Jones, who was able to take it all the way for a lay-in.
After a foul committed by Southmont’s Lilly Ward, Jones was able to connect on a field goal. The only scoring from the Mounties in the first quarter came from Hannah Thompson with a 3-pointer.
Voils also scored in the quarter on a lay-in. The Star’s (8-4, 2-1) Jones also scored six in the quarter on three field goals.
Ward scored first for the Mounties in the third quarter with a quick lay-in, but Jones fired back with a quick field goal. Charles hit a quick 3-pointer, but Kara Brewer, scored five including a three. Charles also scored five in the 3rd. Brewer went on a run for the Stars in the fourth, scoring 10.
“Our major goal tonight was to limit offensive rebounds tonight, and we did that allowing just seven,” Western Boone coach Megan Alexander said. “I was pleased with that. Ward is a great player and holding her to just nine points was a success.”
Charles led the Mounties with 11 points, while Ward added nine.
Jones led the Stars with 17 points, while Lauryn Florey and Brewer added 16 a piece.
Southmont will travel to North Montgomery on Tuesday at 7:30 p.m., while Western Boone will play at Harrison, today at 3:30 p.m.
