  • Woes continue for Lady Braves

    The slump continued for the Grant County Lady Braves this past week as they dropped a pair of games.
    In both cases, the team had a lead and let it slip away.
    The Lady Braves traveled to Paris Jan. 12 to play the Bourbon County Lady Colonels.
    The game was close all the way through with the lead changing hands multiple times.
    Rebounds were the determining factor in the game, as the Lady Colonels pulled down 37 to the Braves 23. This allowed the Colonels to have more second and third chance points.

    The game didn’t start out as planned by the Braves as they fell behind early because of turnovers and some good shooting by the Lady Bearcats.
    As the first quarter came to an end, the Braves luckily were only down 18-13.

    First, a quick history lesson: Coming into the Dec. 11 game in Independence the Lady Braves had dropped their last five games to Simon Kenton by a combined score of 342-162.
    Many thought this game wouldn’t be any different.

    But, nobody told this year’s Grant County Lady Braves that memo.
    From the beginning of the game, this was a different contest.  The Lady Braves jumped out to an early lead thanks to some good ball movement and pinpoint shooting by guards Macy Wright, EJ Kearns and Shelby Harmeyer.
