CLARKSVILLE, Tenn. – The matchup between Kenwood and Northeast was controlled by the Lady Knights early, but the Lady Eagles battled back to take a lead in the second quarter and posted a 52-43 win Tuesday.

Kenwood’s Amaya Homes started hot, scoring six points in the first quarter to give Kenwood a 13-10 lead after the quarter.

Northeast battled back with the help of Kahlia Flowers, who scored 14 of her 18 points in the first half to give the Lady Eagles a 24-19 halftime lead. The Lady Eagles then used a great second-half defensive effort to hold onto the lead and the win.

“Flowers really kept us in the game early when we were struggling to get going in the first quarter,” Lady Eagles coach Tracie Mason-Blair said. “I really liked our team’s effort on defense. We try to use the full-court press to turn teams over and we were able to do that tonight.”

The Lady Eagles (2-0) will try to keep their winning streak going after Thanksgiving at home against Northwest Tuesday.

The Lady Knights will try to get back on track against Knoxville Catholic in the Kenwood Hoops Classic Saturday.
