Lady Highlanders go ice cold in second half against Campbell County

HUNTSVILLE  |  Seldom has a team gone ice-cold the way Scott High went ice-cold here Friday night.

Up 25-18 midway through the third quarter, the Lady Highlanders were starting to look like they were on their way to a season sweep of Campbell County. But then the shots stopped falling — totally and completely — as the Cougars pulled away for a 36-28 win over the Highlanders.

Scott High scored on an offensive putback with 5:11 to play in the third quarter to take a 24-18 lead. That turned out to be significant, because it was the final field goal the Lady Highlanders would score. Incredibly, no more shots fell over the final 13:11 of the game.

In the meantime, Campbell County went on an 18-3 run to pull out the non-district win.

Neither team was especially effective offensively, combining for just 16 field goals.

But Scott High’s woes saw the Lady Highlanders shoot a season-low 19% from the field, including only 8% from 3-point range.

Scott High was 13 of 20 from the free throw line, and it was only on three free throws that the Lady Highlanders would score in the game’s final 13 minutes.
