Switzerland girls fall to Knights in Rivertown semifinals
Thursday, January 03, 2013 10:00 AM
Switzerland County shot itself in the foot at the free-throw line and it cost the Pacers in a 49-34 loss to South Dearborn in the semifinals of the Rivertown Classic Wednesday in Aurora.
The Pacers were just 16-for-31 from the foul line while losing to a Lady Knights team that they had beaten in November.
"We shot poorly from the field and the free-throw line which ultimately cost us the game. If we make those (free throws), it's a ball game," Switzerland coach Ashley Chase said. "Unfortunately, we were unable to generate offense any other way. This season will continue to be a learning process, but we have to apply what we learn at each and every game if we want to win."
Eve Galbreath led Switzerland with eight points. Brooke Todd had seven points, Kelsi Konkle had five, Hailee Lay scored four, Bre Ricketts and Mercedes Parham each had three, and Makenzie Mathews and Erika Coy both had two.
Switzerland will now play Lawrenceburg (5-6) - a 53-52 loser to Rising Sun in Wednesday's other semifinal - in the consolation game of the girls Rivertown Classic on Friday. The Pacer boys will face south Dearborn in the boys Rivertown semifinals tonight in Aurora.
