The Fredericktown Lady Cats improved to 4-1 on the season with a 57-20 victory over St. Vincent, Thursday, here.
Fredericktown’s defensive pressure proved to be too much for the Lady Indians. St. Vincent scored no more than six points in any quarter. In the first period, the Cats pressure created easy baskets, as they cruised to a 23-6 lead. A 16-5 second quarter gave Fredericktown a 39-11 halftime advantage.
In the second half, several players got to see significant playing time for the Cats. Annabeth Phillips entered the game midway through the third quarter and ended up leading all scorers with 14 points. Freshman Konner Johnston had 12, Ellie Jensen had ten, Paige Godsey scored seven, Terra Helm scored six (on a pair of three-pointers), Abby Clark had five, Nicole Burns scored two, and Brooke Tonjum scored one. Johnston led with seven rebounds.
The Lady Cats have a pair of games this week. They will try to make it five straight victories, as they take on the West County Bulldogs, Thursday, in Leadwood. The Cats then return home, Friday to host the Festus Lady Tigers.
