By Brad Laux Sports Writer The Bath County girls' basketball team had a hard time shaking a pesky Elliott County squad on Monday night at home until a stretch of about three and a half minutes between the end of the third quarter and the start of the fourth. The run allowed the Lady Cats to pull away from the Lady Lions and earn a 63- 56 win. Lexy Grimes was the catalyst in the surge that took the score from 41-40 with 37.6 seconds to play in the third quarter to 54- 43 with 5:02 left in the fourth. "Coach told me to go out there and be a leader and to get it done. We had to take control of the game and we did," she said. During that stretch Grimes had 10 points, made all four of her free throws and collected a steal. "We needed someone to pick us up because we were fiat. Lexy put" us on her shoulders and did a 10t of good things," Bath County coach Mike Murray said. Besides the Lady Cats' scoring surge, Bath County also was able to pull out the victory with its free- throw shooting as the team converted a season-high 20-of-23 foul shots. "We shot 30 percent the other night against Nicholas County and then 87 percent tonight," Murray said. "We know that in tight games that we have to knock down shots and tonight to our credit the kids stepped up and hit them." "Our free-throw shooting literally won us the game," Grimes said. "It was exquisite." Bath County (7-3) jumped out to a 9-0 lead in the game'sfirst three minutes and seven seconds, behind five points and an assist from Grimes, but Elliott County (2-11) buckled down on defense and picked up its offense as the quarter closed with the Lady Cats holding an 11-6 lead. Elliott County kept clawing away at the deficit, largely behind the efforts of Noel Skaggs and Cheyenna Ferguson, as the Lady Lions drew within two at 14-12 with 4:57 to play in the half. After both teams traded baskets, Bath County went on an 8-0 run to pull ahead 25- 14. The hosts'~ maintained that advantage through halftime when it led 32- 19. Bath County did a lot of its damage from the outside, hitting all five 3- pointers it made during the game in the opening 16 minutes. Elliott County answered the bell to start the third quarter. After both teams traded baskets, the visitors scored 13 straight points to tie the game at 34-34 on a pair of Kelsey Ison free throws with 3:58 left in the period. The margin remained within four points throughout the rest of the period, but Elliott County was never able to gain the advantage. Despite committing seven more turnovers in the period than the Lady Lions (eight to one), the Lady Cats took a 43-40 edge into the final quarter. The hosts opened the fourth period by notching the nine straight points over the first minute and 21 seconds. Elliott County closed within four at 56-52 after a Brittany Worthington layup with 3:08 remaining on the clock, forcing Murray to call a time out. "Once we tried to start stretching the lead, we played a like a young team and didn't understand time and situation and let / New Year! I hope that the new year brings you much joy and happiness. 2011 began with warm weather and a hint of sunshine, but colder temperatures came back to the Commonwealth today. Personally, it was a good sports weekend for me. The Kentucky Wildcats defeated the Louisville Cardinals on Friday and the Steelers clinched a first round bye in the NFL play-offs with a 41- 9 victory over the Browns. To make it better, it appears as if we may be fortunate enodgh to be in school for the entire first week of the new year and we have a full slate of home basketball games- YES! Although it has been a while since we were in school, the WildCats and LadyCats have been busy. The LadyCats, after winning the Portland Christian tournament, have lost two in a row. On Tuesday, the 'Cats, trailing 19-18 in the second quarter, saw Fleming County go on a 11-1 run to take a 30-19 halftime lead. The team could not find an answer to the Panthers' aggressive defense and Fleming County pawed the LadyCats en route to a 64-44 win. The loss was the second for the LadyCats in District play. On Thursday, the team travelled to Carlisle to take on Nicholas County. Trailing most of the game, the LadyCats would take the lead early in the fourth quarter, but could not hold on. The Lady Jackets would prevail by a score of 52-39. As the new year begins, LadyCats' record stands at 6-3 and Coach Mike Murray hopes that his team can get well at home; the LadyCats will host three games this week. Coach Deron Breeze and the WildCats hosted Nicholas County on Thursday night and found that the BlueJackets had little sting as the 'Cats cruised to a 82-27 victory. With members from the 1977 10th Region championship team in attendance, the WildCats put on a show. Cody House scored nineteen points to lead the team's offensive output, but ten other players would dent the scoring column for the 'Cats. Sam Dye pulled down twelve rebounds and Jared Ravenscraft completed a double-double with eighteen points and ten boards of his own. The WildCats' record stands at 9-2, with Rowan County coming to town on Tuesday night for a 61st District showdown. With a home game scheduled for five of the next six nights, you will have plenty of opportunity to see our basketball programs in action. I hope to see you soon!
