Taken from the News and Tribune:
• First half costs Generals: Clarksville fell behind Brownstown Central 12-3 after one quarter and 30-14 at the half. The Generals made a late charge but fell 62-39.
“In the first half, we dug ourselves a little hole,” Clarksville coach B.D. Ledbetter said. “We made a mini-run at them. The girls fought hard and made a little effort [in the second half]. The girls are starting to get it, starting to learn what it takes.”
Clarksville played even with the Braves, 14-14 in the fourth quarter.
“Everybody stepped up a little on defense and created some opportunities that way,” Ledbetter said.
Haley Jenkins led the Generals with 14 points.
“In the second half, we finally got her to be aggressive,” Ledbetter said of Jenkins. “From there, people started to follow her.”
Bailey Sharp added 11 points, including a pair of 3-pointers, and Abby Hurtgen scored 10.
NEXT: Clarksville (3-6, 0-2 Mid-Southern Conference) at Austin (4-2, 3-1), Thursday.
