GIRLS' BASKETBALL ROUNDUP: Clarksville tops Henryville in OT

Kaiser’s 26 leads Highlanders over Panthers

CLARKSVILLE — The Clarksville girls’ basketball team picked up its fourth win of the season on Tuesday in a hard-fought game against Henryville.

In a tight game the teams needed overtime to decide the outcome. The host Generals got the best of the Hornets in the extra quarter and won 46-45.

“It was a good game, a real fun game to play in,” said Clarksville coach B.D. Ledbetter.

Despite 26 points by Henryville guard Emily Hollis, the Generals were able to hold the rest of the Hornets (9-8) at bay by allowing the rest of the team to score just 19 points.

“Our girls really stepped it up on defense. We played great team defense and it probably was the best job we have done all year,” said Ledbetter.

Both teams struggled scoring in the first half, holding each other under 15 points. Henryville took a slender 12-11 lead at halftime.

Both teams got going offensively in the third quarter, where Henryville was able to build up a four-point lead heading into the final quarter at 26-22.

Clarksville rallied in the fourth and were able to tie the game forcing overtime.

“We were aggressive on offense the second half. We had good ball movement and everyone was getting involved,” said Ledbetter.

In overtime, the Generals hung on to the momentum to collect the one-point victory.

Clarksville had three players score in double figures. Haley Jenkins led the Generals with 17 points. Bailey Sharp added 13 and Gabby Evans scored 10.

Henryville’s Emily Hollis was the game’s leading scorer with 26 points, and Emma Hendricks had 10 for the Hornets.

Clarksville (4-14, 0-7 Mid-Southern Conference) will go to Charlestown (10-6, 4-3) for a Mid-Southern Conference clash on Thursday. Henryville will visit Christian Academy (5-13).
