Taylor’s 21 leads Lady Pacers to big win over Crothersville

  Lady Pacer Kenzie Taylor nearly outscored the entire Crothersville team by herself last Thursday night, December 1st, as Switzerland County blasted Crothersville by a final score of 59-24.

  Taylor finished with 21 points on the night, as the junior finished with six field goals, a three-pointer, and was 6-for-7 from the freethrow line. She also added four rebounds and five steals in the game.

  Switzerland County jumped out early, scoring 18 points in the first period, Bri Stow was hot from the outside, making two three-pointers in the opening stanza to account for six points; while Taylor had a three-pointer and a field goal for five points.

  Courtney Higgins had three points in the first; while Macy Collier and Maddie Levell each contributed a basket.

  Crothersville had two baskets in the quarter for four points.

  The second quarter saw the Switzerland County offense continue to roll, as the Lady Pacers added another 11 points to their total.

  Stow made another three-pointer — she would have four on the night; while Taylor had six points on a field goal and a perfect 4-for-4 effort at the freethrow line. Higgins added another basket; and the halftime score stood at 29-10 in favor of the Lady Pacers.

  The streak continued after halftime, with the Lady Pacers scoring 14 more points.

  Stow had five points in the third; Taylor had four more; Collier added three; and Higgins had two more.

  With a quarter to play, Switzerland County led 43-16.

  The fourth quarter saw the Switzerland County bench get emptied — as due to Crothersville not having very many players, there was no junior varsity game.

  That meant that the entire bench was available to head coach Brooke Todd, and she took full advantage of that, as eight different players scored.

  Taylor finished off her outstanding night with six more points; Addie Kelso and Carlee Boggs each had a basket for two points; and the rest of the scoring came from the freethrow line: Isabella Breeck had two points; Kaitlynn Stucker, Molly Wrightsman, Higgins, and Allena Weaver each had one.

  Final score: Switzerland County 59, Crothersville24.

  Along with Taylor, Stow finished with 14 points on her four three-pointers; and Higgins had eight points, four rebounds, and five steals.

  Collier had five points and four steals; Levell had two points and four rebounds; Breeck had two points and four rebounds; Boggs and Kelso had two points each; and Weaver, Wrightsman, and Stucker each added a point.

  Switzerland County played without star junior Halle Archer, who missed the game with an injury.
