Second half dooms Lady Cards

Galatia outpaces Woodlawn 48-28


Galatia turned a close game into a comfortable 48-28 win Wednesday night against the Lady Cardinals.

Woodlawn trailed by just four points at halftime, but the Lady Cats used a big second half to pull away.

Galatia's Elizabeth Sloan led all scorers with 20 points in the game. Lexy Knox led Woodlawn with nine.

Sloan gave the Galatia offense a quick start in the opening quarter. Sloan hit four 3-pointers in the first quarter and tallied 14 points to help the Lady Cats seize a 16-8 edge.

She's a good player, and her size really helps,” Woodlawn coach Matt Patterson said. “We covered her a couple time, thought we had a hand up, and she was big enough to shoot over us.”

Galatia's early lead increased to 18-8 at the start the second quarter, but Sloan was tagged with her second foul and went to the bench with 5:53 left in the half. With Sloan on the bench, Woodlawn whittled away at the Lady Cats lead.

Three straight free throws from Kiara Lueking cut the deficit to 20-15. Carly Ethridge moved the Lady Cardinals closer with a bucket. Another Lueking free throw helped Woodlawn cut the Galatia advantage to 20-18 with less than a minute left in the half.

We responded pretty well there in the second quarter, and we got right back in the game with defensive effort being most of it,” Patterson said.

Galatia scored the final bucket of the half and took a 22-18 edge into the break.

Woodlawn struggled to hit shots in the opening half, and the problem worsened in the final two quarters. The Lady Cardinals finished nine of 50 from the field, doing most of their damage from the foul line where they were 10 of 17.

I guess the important part was we got the shots we wanted and got some good looks,” Patterson said. “We just didn't make anything. We were about as cold as you could get.”

Galatia took advantage of the poor shooting from the Woodlawn offense and pulled away. Midway through the third quarter, Emily Reed gave the Lady Cats a double-digit lead. Woodlawn briefly cut the lead to single digits but never threatened the Lady Cats again.

Woodlawn is 2-5 this season and hosts Carmi-White County on Saturday.
