Lady Musketeers still in the hunt for MSC title, but will likely have to share
The Eastern Lady Musketeers knew from the beginning of the season that whether or not they were able to claim the schools first-ever Mid Southern Conference title, would depend largely on how they played last week. The Thursday-Saturday doubleheader against Scottsburg and Silver Creek couldn’t win them the title, but it could cost them. They handled business Thursday against Scottsburg, but found life in the Lady Dragon’s den tough sledding. Silver Creek’s Emily Clayton scored 32 points and the Lady Musketeers trailed most of the game. With the loss, Eastern falls to 17-1 and will have to wait until Feb. 2 to see if they can do something no other team has ever done. They host North Harrison that night to claim a piece of the MSC title. Against the Lady Dragons, Krista Roberts and Kaylyn Rodewig scored 11 points each for Eastern and Jocelyn Mousty contributed 10. Against Scottsburg, Eastern took control of the game during the second quarter and then put the game on cruise control a little too early.
The Borden High School boys’ basketball team was crusing through the season with a perfect record. They kept the pursuit of an undefeated season in tact after beating Christian Academy 65-45 Friday. They weren’t as fortunate Saturday as they lose a tough on the road Saturday at Henryville, 89-85.
