The 2A Lady Dark Horses bumped off the 1A Leopards at Lakewood on Friday night, ending their 3 game unbeaten streak. Clinton left the court with a final score of 64-45.


The Lady Horses had a hot hand, and the Leps managed to keep up for a while, but by halftime, Clinton had built a 13 point margin with a score of 20-33. The Horses out-scored the Leopards every quarter: 9-15; 20-33; 34-54; and 45-69.


MiKayla Boykin had a game high 22 points. Kristin Glasper scored 15 points; Brielle Mitchell, 10 points; Zoey Harris, 12 points; Jasmine Fryar, 6 points; and DeAsia Edwards with 2 points.


Clinton head coach Chris Owens was pleased with the way his team executed the plays they’ve practiced all season.


“It was a very hard fought game as usual. As this was a backyard rivalry, and Lakewood is a great team. They are well coached. Our girls tonight played good. We’ve been working on our plays, so I thought we did good on that.”


For the Leopards, Briana Evans and Rashyda Parker each scored 11 points; Alexis Williams, Jada Moore, and Chanel McLellon all scored 6 points each; Bianca Boone, 3 points. Parker also had 9 rebounds.


Lakewood head coach Lofton Kerr said his team needed to practice their 2-point shots.


“I thought the game plan we had worked well at the beginning, but then the girls started playing the way that I don’t like to play basketball. We’ve been missing a lot of 2 point shots and we need to fix that,” he explained.


Lakewood will host Union and Clinton travels to Cape Fear on Tuesday.
