“I think we’re getting better, we’re definitely getting better on our passing and we’ll continue working on our movements and getting better with our passing,” LCHS head coach Steve Lyne said.
The Lady Panthers were trying to come and use the rivalry atmosphere to help them rebound against a disappointing loss to Ohio County at their place. But the Lady Cougars squashed any idea of that and got back in the winning column after falling to Southwestern in the Cougar Challenge finals.
The Lady Panthers jumped on the Lady Cougars early, and LCHS wasn’t as crisp and as sharp as they may have been. But the same problem that has plagued the Lady Panthers all season reared its ugly head; consistency. The Lady Panthers fell apart in the first game losing 25-14.
In the second game the Lady Cougars came out on fire, determined to put the game away. With Russellville having their issues with consistency they couldn’t mount a successful counter and would fall in the second game 25-10.
The Lady Panthers and Lady Cougars are looking for success tonight at the Purples Classic in Bowling Green.
“It’ll be a good tournament for us,” coach Lyne said.
The Lady Cougars will square off against South Warren at 5 p.m. and the Lady Panthers will play on Saturday morning against a yet to be determined opponent.
