Lady Indians ice cold against Newberry

-A A +A
By Claude Lewis

Consistency, or lack of it, has been a big problem for the Chiefland High girls varsity basketball team this season.

Chiefland played well earlier last week against Dixie County, but the Lady Indians took a step backward last Thursday, Jan. 17, against visiting Newberry.

The Lady Panthers avenged an earlier loss to Chiefland with a 46-21 victory.

The Lady Indians saw their record dip to 1-15.

Chiefland tied the game at 4-4 after a basket by Jerrica Grimsley, but Newberry led the rest of the way. It was 9-4 after one quarter.

Chiefland close to within 11-7 after a free throw by Megan Jernigan. Newberry scored the final eight points of the period to lead 19-7 at intermission.

Poor court decisions, sloppy passes and poor shooting plagued the Lady Indians.

Grimsley had to leave at halftime, leaving the Lady Indians a girl short.

There was one more spurt early in the third quarter, as Tina Russell provided a spark with two straight buckets to draw Chiefland to 21-11.

Buckets were few and far between the rest of the period, as the Lady Panthers took a 33-17 lead into the final session.
