Madison Brown had 15 points, six steals and one rebound to lead the Prairie Home girls junior high basketball team past St. Mary’s of Glasgow Tuesday night in Prairie Home by a score of 31-30.
The Lady Panthers, 3-1 on the season, trailed St. Mary’s of Glasgow 13-12 at the half and 24-19 after three quarters of play before rallying back with a 12-6 advantage in the final period for the win.
Prairie Home coach Dalton Armontrout said the girls played a lot better in the second half. “We are still turning the ball over too much and most of that is just us dribbling too much or just not catching the basketball,” Armontrout said. “I thought our defense kept us in the game. We got stops and rebounds when we needed to. We need to be more patient on offense. We stand around too much. Overall, it was a nice comeback, but I would like to see us play better for four quarters.”
Allison Simmons finished the game with eight points, eight rebounds, five steals and one assist for Prairie Home. Paiton Williams chipped in eight points, five steals, four rebounds and two assists while Kamden Holliday added two rebounds and two steals and Aubree Hedgepath with two steals and one rebound.
