The Harrison County Fillies saw their season record drop to 3-16 Monday night as the Lady Camels of Campbell County used pressure defense to stymie them.
The Fillies problems didn’t start right away as they battled Campbell County close in the first period.
Eighth grader Taylor Reffett made two early three pointers and the Fillies managed to trail by only two points at the end of the opening stanza 11-9.
The Fillies’ junior center Jordan Doram went to the bench with early foul trouble and the Fillies began to have trouble bringing the ball past the 10-second line in the second period.
Campbell County outscored the Fillies by an 18 to five margin in the second period and took a 29-14 lead into the half time break.
Campbell County picked up the pressure even more in the third quarter, so much in fact that often the Fillies’ guards could not get the ball past the 10-second line.
“Our guards could not handle this kind of in-your-face pressure,” bemoaned Coach Kim Furnish. “We had Taylor and Jordan in position to score, but we could not get them the ball.”
The Fillies’ offense was not their only issue as defensively they were unable to prevent wide open looks at close range for the visiting Lady Camels. The margin widened to 58-16 by the end of the third quarter.
Campbell County called off the press in the final period and Harrison County’s sophomore guard Kassidy Cook took advantage of the opportunity by driving into the middle and scoring or dishing the ball to teammates.
Harrison County outscored Campbell County by 15-6 in the fourth quarter for the final 64-31 score.
Doram led Harrison County in scoring with 11 followed by Cook’s 10-point performance.
Senior guard Taylor Robinson led Campbell County with 17 points while fellow senior Kaitlin Siegmundt added 16. The Lady Camels improve to 7-13.
Harrison County also lost the junior varsity game by a 53-31 score with freshman Kayla Ford leading the scoring with eight points.
The Fillies take the floor again on Friday when they open the girl/boy double header with Pendleton County.
