The Perry County Central Lady Commodores kicked off their 2016-17 basketball season this week with the Knox Central Lady Panthers. The Lady Commodores jumped out to the early lead, and fended off several rallies by the Lady Panthers before running out to the 108-81 win.

Perry Central built a sizable lead early in the first period, but then saw Knox Central go on a run of their own. The Lady Commodores finished the first period with a 26-21 lead.

Knox Central was able to erase their deficit in the second quarter, but could not take a lead on the Lady Commodores. The final minutes of the half belonged to Perry Central, sending them to the break with the 53-41 advantage.

The Lady Panthers cut the margin to six early in the third period, but the rally only seemed to spur the Lady Commodores to a run of their own. Perry Central quickly pushed the lead back to double-digits, and ended the period with the 78-62 lead.

Perry Central opened the fourth quarter by extending their lead to more than 20 points, and then went to their bench to finish the contest. The Lady Commodores went on to win the game by the final tally of 108-81.
