Lady Pirates get revenge over Keys

LOCUST GROVE — The Lady Pirates paid back Keys for a close loss last week when it defeated the Lady Cougars Tuesday, 57-46.

Locust Grove got off to a commanding lead, thanks to sophomore Madison Davis’ seven points in less than two minutes.

“She made a point right from the start,” LG Head Coach Justin Brown said of Davis. “She came out looking to score, and that was obvious.”

Davis finished with 24 points to lead the Lady Pirates in scoring

The Lady Pirates full-court press gave Keys fits in the first quarter, paving the way to a 21-6 lead after one quarter.

“The difference was the first quarter for us,” Brown said. “We came out ready to play and excited, ready for payback.”

Before the game Brown said his squad needed to keep Keys away from the free throw line.

“They were 18/21 in our first matchup,” said Brown. “That was a problem.”

The Lady Cougars visited the stripe once in the first period.

Though Keys made nine free throws in the second quarter, LG headed to the locker room with a 13 point lead.

The Lady Cougars didn’t shoot a free throw in the third.

Brown attributed Keys’ seven trips to the line in the fourth to fatigue.

“When you get tired those things happen,” Brown said. “We’re not in full game shape yet, but we’ll get there.”  

Locust Grove faces Adair in the semifinals Thursday at 7:20 p.m.
