Without Three Starters, Lady Clovers Fall To Riverton Parke Friday Evening

Cloverdale’s varsity girls’ basketball team traveled to Riverton Parke last Friday evening where they fell to the host Lady Panthers, 72-14.

“We understood going into Friday night that it would be a big challenge going up against a very good team with three of our starters unable to play, but I felt our girls made the best of the situation,” Cloverdale coach Matt Langdon said. “We were unable to handle their press earlier on which gave them many easy baskets in the first quarter. The girls did a good job the second half of trying to accomplish some things we want to work on. Even if we face large deficits early in games we need to use each quarter to try to improve.”

The Lady Panthers (2-0) jumped out to an early lead in the first period, 30-0 before the Lady Clovers were able to put points on the board. In the second frame, Riverton Parke tacked on another 14 with Cloverdale picking up nine to trail 44-9 at the half.

At the end of the third, the Lady Panthers led 57-14 and edged out CHS 72-14.

Cloverdale was led by Tori Combs with four points. Abby Walker added three points, Grace Rightmyer two, Lauren Meek two, Kaylyn Couch two, and Mariah Huge one.

Cloverdale (0-2) will host the 1-0 North Central (Farmersburg) Thunderbirds tonight, Tuesday. The junior varsity game tips off at 6:00, with the varsity game to follow at 7:30.
