H.S. GIRLS’ BASKETBALL: Pirates win first Charlestown Holiday Tournament title since 2009

Dragons beat Clarksville 51-33 in consolation game



Silver Creek, which entered the tournament hoping for their fourth consecutive title, was never threatened in a 51-33 victory over Clarksville in Saturday’s consolation game.

Silver Creek dominated play on the inside, led by junior center Kelsi Scott, who finished with 20 points and nine rebounds. Silver Creek scored the game’s first 10 points and led 17-2 after a quarter.

The Dragons knew they were in for a battle after watching the Generals almost pull out a victory over Providence on Friday.

“We knew that we would have to show up ready to play and tonight we did,” Silver Creek coach Scott Schoen said. “When Kelsi stays on the floor, we’re a different team. And Bailee [Popp] is really coming on. She’s picked it up on offense quickly. I told her she needs to pick up the defense just as quick.”

Haley Jenkins led Clarksville with 20 points and 13 rebounds.

Clarksville coach B.D.Ledbetter’s voice was hoarse at the start of the game. It was gone by game’s end.

“We didn’t turn it over tonight but we had no defensive intensity at all,” said assistant coach Antonio Grubbs. “It’s just a matter of putting the pieces together. It’s all about consistency.”

Clarksville will host Crawford County on Jan. 7, while the Dragons go to Borden on Jan. 9.
