CLARKSVILLE, Tenn.- Dominant defense from Clarksville High and poor shooting from the Lady Indians were on full display when Clarksville High and Montgomery Central played Friday.

The Lady Wildcats won 61-21.

“It was one of those games where the girls were going to be physical and we had to play through a lot of contact.” Lady Wildcats coach Brian Rush said. “We got into some foul trouble early. I thought our girls did well having different players step in there and make contributions.”

The win moved Clarksville High to 4-3 overall and 3-0 in District 10-AAA. The Lady Wildcats have won three of their last four games.

Montgomery Central is 1-6 overall and 1-2 in the district. The Lady Indians have score more than 30 points only once in their first seven games.

Several Lady Wildcats had a good shooting night. Scotti Harrison finished with 14 points, while Lucy Chilcutt had nine. Macy brown was seven-for-seven from the free-throw line.

Montgomery Central’s Abbey South made a 3-pointer to neutralize a 7-0 run by Clarksville High, but it was the Lady Wildcats holding a 15-7 lead after the first quarter.

Dominant defense from Clarksville High showed up in the following quarters with the Lady Indians scoring only five points in the second quarter and three in the third.

At the end of the third quarter, Clarksville High led 52-15. The lead increased thanks to a 19-3 third-quarter run.

The fourth quarter saw plenty of fresh faces as both teams went deep into their benches.

“We were very supportive of each other when they got in,” Rush said. “We were congratulating them for what they were putting on the floor.”
