The North Harrison girl’s basketball team came into this season with a goal of winning the Mid-Southern Conference and on Saturday traveled to Scottsburg for an MSC showdown.


As it turned out, it was the LadyCats who remained perfect on the year and in the conference with a 47-41 win.

“Any time you win at Scottsburg it’s a big win,” North Harrison coach Missy Voyles said. “It’s a tough place to play. Conference is a goal this year and we are muddling through at the moment.”

North Harrison used a fast start, but Scottsburg didn’t back down as North Harrison scored the first seven points of the game as Jourdan McAfee scored five of those points. Hallie Hinton ended Scottsburg brief 5-0 run with a basket to make it 9-5.

Cali Nolot got in the scoring column to make it 11-6 after the first quarter. Scottsburg’s Paige Barrett scored the first six points of the second quarter to give her team a 12-11 lead, which was their first lead of the game. The game went back-and-forth for the next few minutes until Jessika Chiquito knocked down a 3-pointer for North Harrison to give them the lead for good at 18-16.

Nolot made it 22-16 at the break with the final four points of the half.

“We were not doing things mentally like we should,” Voyles said. “We got a little rattled and kind of fell apart mentally offensively. They pulled themselves together a little at halftime.”

North Harrison got scoring contributions from five different players in the third quarter as they outscored Scottsburg 14-11 to take a 36-27 lead heading into the final quarter.

Scottsburg, however, turned the table in the fourth quarter to outscore North Harrison 14-11, but still was not enough to claim the win.

“They have a good team and that Emma (Waskom) is a nice ball handler,” Voyles said. “Taylor (Means) you have top keep a hand in her face all the time and we lost her a few times and hit some great outside shots.”

Carlie Burson and Lilly Hatton each scored 10 points for North Harrison (6-0, 3-0) and Jourdan McAfee added nine points. Hatton collected a double-double with 10 rebounds. Barrett and Means led Scottsburg (2-2, 0-1) with 14 points.

Both teams shot 10 of 17 from the free throw line.
