Last Monday, the Perry County Central Lady Commodores opened their season by hosting the South Floyd Lady Raiders. The Lady Commodores held the lead for most of the game, but failed to make critical free throws down the stretch, and fell to the Lady Raiders 65-62.
The game went back and forth in the first period, with Perry Central pulling ahead late for the 19-12 lead. South Floyd stole the momentum in the second period, but could not totally erase their deficit. The Lady Commodores went into the locker room with the 32-27 lead.
The Lady Commodores came out of the locker room strong and quickly pushed their lead back to double-digits, leading at the beginning of the fourth quarter 51-39. The Lady Raiders put up a battle in the fourth quarter, and eventually began to put Perry Central on the line. The Lady Commodores went 7 of 15 from the line, allowing the Lady Raiders to take the 65-62 win.
Perry Central (62) Curry 10, Cornett 5, Fleming 3, Sizemore 3, Minks 1, Eddington 7, Ashworth 1, Sturgill 19, Hall 9 and Shepherd 4.
