Tigers score win on Senior Day
The Crothersville girls basketball team had a thrilling 35-34 victory over Dugger Union on Saturday afternoon.
It was Senior Day for the Tigers as they honored Ella Plasse, Zoe Spangler and Kennadi Lakins before the ballgame tipped off.
Lakins was held out due to injury, but Spangler and Plasse carried a bulk of the load for Crothersville.
Plasse scored 15 points while Spangler scored 14 to help lead the team to victory. Kendall Berry scored the other six points for the Tigers.
Dugger Union had just two players score as Stormy Kinnard poured in 27 points and Brae Simpson had the other seven. A 3-pointer from Kinnard at the buzzer wasn’t enough as Crothersville held on for the one-point victory.
The Tigers are now 3-11 on the season and will play again tomorrow night at Austin at 7:30 p.m.
