Game Recap

Greensburg Lady Pirates visited Connersville Monday night, November 20th. CHS jumped out to an early 1st qtr. lead 9 to 8. CHS used a 2-3 zone to keep the bigger Pirate squad out of the lane and forced them to rely on outside shots that didn’t find their mark. The second qtr. went to the Pirates. CHS couldn’t crack the scoring column at all and the pirates worked the ball inside CHS zone defense. Scoring 9 points in the qtr. and holding the Spartans scoreless for the period. The Pirates played a man to man defense and had size advantage on the Spartans. They were more aggressive and kept a hand in the face of the Spartans. Greensburg forced CHS out of their offense and contested every shot taken by the Spartans. Pirates 17 CHS 9 was the half time score. CHS hustled their way back into the game in the 3rd qtr. Applying a full court press that rattled the Pirates into turning the ball over and out of their offense, CHS closed down the score to within 4 points at the end of the 3rd quarter 23 – 19. The Pirate offense came back to life in the 4th. CHS had to work hard to cut the 12 point lead down to 4. The defensive pressure wasn’t quite as effective in shutting down Greensburg who scored 14 points in the 4th qtr. taking a 37 to 25 victory over the Spartans. CHS had a balanced scoring attack. Baylee Schneider had 9, Brenliegh Cloyd 7, Haley Baker 3 and Riley Davison, Grace Jones and Breanna McDaniel each chipped in 2 a piece.
