Lady Cougar’s Too Much for Tri-Central on Senior Night

January 25, 2013
Carroll Jr.-Sr. High School

Saturday afternoon, Senior Kaitlin Ragan and Sophomore Carly Kingery combined for scoring honors with 16 points each to cap a 65-50 conference win over Tri-Central (5-13).  The Cougars also celebrated the playing careers of Ragan and fellow Senior Paige Spesard and hosted the Coaches vs Cancer game.  It was a busy Saturday afternoon!  The Cougars and Trojans played evenly throughout the first half.  Ragan started quickly with 8 first quarter points in route to a 13-13 tie at the break. The Cougars were down 5-1 before Ragan ran off 5 points to give Carroll the lead at 6-5.  Bailey Worl followed with a fielder and a free-throw and the lead was 9-5.  The Trojans fought back with 8 points wrapped around free-throws from Ragan and a quarter ending basket from Libby Eller.

The Cougars used scoring from 7 different players in the second quarter to score 17 points and take a 1-point lead into halftime 30-29.  Tri-Central kept pace throughout the quarter.  TC opened with 4 points, the Cougars responded with 4.  TC got a rebound basket off a missed free-throw for a 19-17 lead.  MaKayla Jackson made two freebies for Carroll followed by an Eller 2-pointer.  TC made 2 free-throws before Carroll responded with 2 freebies from Worl and a drive and left-handed layup from Brooke Ennis.  Carroll led 25-21.  TC countered with an 8-0 run to lead 29-25.  Kingery made one of two from the line, then Worl with 2 more throws before Gabbie Evans finished with a steal and layup at the break to give the hosts the lead.

Paige Speasrd started the scoring in the third quarter with a deuce.  TC landed a 3-pointer to tie the game.  Ragan was knocked to the floor while shooting a 3-pointer and had to exit the game.  Bailey Worl made one of the three free-throws to give the lead to Carroll.  Paige Spesard then hit a 3-pointer and the Cougars had taken control of the game.  TC must have done something to fire up Carly Kingery because she ran off 9 points to 2 from TC to end the quarter.  Carroll’s lead grew to 47-36 at the break.  The Cougars out-scored the Trojans 17-7 for the quarter.  Kingery, Spesard and Ragan opened the final period with 8 points.  TC continued to fight getting 7 early points to keep pace.  Carroll made 12 of 16 free-throws and TC struggled to make shots late in the game.   The Cougars had a very balanced attack.  Ragan and Kingery had 16 points each to go with 8 rebounds, 3 assists and 8 steals.  Worl added 10 points and 7 rebounds in her first game back from injury.  Spesard had 9 points while Eller added 8 with 3 rebounds, 4 assists and 2 steals.  Gabbie Evans, Brooke Ennis and MaKayla Jackson had 2 points each to finish the Cougars scoring column.

Carroll will finish their season on the road.  This Thursday they will be at Lewis Cass for a 7pm Varsity start.  Saturday they will travel to Rossville for a 2pm Varsity start.  The following Tuesday they will travel to Tri-County for a 7pm Varsity game and will finish the regular season at Frontier next Thursday at 7pm.  Follow these ladies they are fun to watch!
