Lady Knights 8th Grade Picks Up Big Win

Story By Steve Heath

The 8th Grade Lady Knights picked up a big early season win by defeating Tippecanoe Valley on the road 38 to 34. The Lady Knights trailed 14-9 after the first quarter and 21-17 at the half.  They used a strong defensive effort in the 3rd quarter to hold Valley without a field goal, a quarter which saw the Knights outscore Valley 13-5 to take a 30-26 lead going into the 4th.  The Knights held off a strong Valley surge in the 4th (two key players fouled out for the Lady Knights) to seal the win.  The Lady Knights host Eastbrook next Wednesday, January 12.
