E-mail Print PDF

taylormeadows1DRAFFENVILLE - Taylor Meadows needed 24 points to reach the 1,000 point mark in her career as a Lady Marshal and scored exactly 24 points in the Lady Marshals win over Calloway County 65-54 Friday at Reed Conder Gymnasium.

Meadows put the first two points of the game on the board Friday as well, then put the Lady Marshals back in the lead at 8-7 with a three pointer after falling behind the Lady Lakers 7-5. Marshall County led 15-10 at the end of the first quarter in the important district game.
Leading 21-16 in the second quarter, Calloway's Bailey Brown hit a three that pulled the Lady Lakers back to within two points of Marshall County. Tied up at 23-23, Calloway then took a three point lead following a three pointer from Summer Simmons. Toni Fehrenbacher, Alyssa Barnard and Meadows combined for the next eight points giving the Lady Marshals a 31-26 halftime lead, a lead they would not relinquish the remainder of the game.
Fehrenbacher and Meadows combined again to start the second half for the first seven points putting the Lady Marshals up 38-28 over Calloway, and led by 10 at the end of the third quarter.
Meadows field goal to start the fourth quarter gave the Lady Marshals their biggest lead of the game at 50-38. Calloway inched back to within five points, but free throws down the stretch from Meadows gave the Lady Marshals a 65-54 victory and Meadows her 1,000th point as she led the team with 24 points.
Marshall County won the battle of the boards out-rebounding Calloway 42-26 with 27 coming on the defensive end of play. Alex Brown had a good night against Calloway with 13 points and 11 rebounds. The win gives the Lady Marshals an 11-4 overall record and 1-1 record in district games.

Saturday, the Lady Marshals took on another district foe in Community Christian Academy in Paducah and after leading just 14-7 at the end of the first quarter, the girls picked up steam to win 68-33 advancing their district record to 2-1.
Assistant Coach Kala Cary, in post-game radio comments, attributed the slow start to the Lady Marshals emotional win over Calloway County the previous night but the girls settled down and got the job done.
A basket at the buzzer gave the Lady Marshals a 31-15 halftime lead, they built upon the second half out-scoring the Lady Warriors 23 to seven in the third quarter getting six from Fehrenbacher and a three pointer by Melissa Ross for a 54-22 third quarter lead.
Ross, Michaela Manley and Caitlyn York all contributed in the final quarter as the Lady Marshals pulled out a 35 point victory.
It was another good game on the boards by Alex Brown who had 10 rebounds and Barnard who pulled in 11. Meadows and Fehrenbacher led the team in points, each with 10 as 11 Lady Marshals were in the scoring column against CCA. Payton Carter led the Lady Warriors with 17 points.
The Lady Marshals will play three games next week starting with Paducah Tilghman Tuesday at home when they will try to contain senior guard Chelsey Shumpert, then Friday will play away against region rival Graves County and end the week Saturday at home against Marion, IL.
