Palestine outmuscles LHS
LAWRENCEVILLE - Palestine brought an undefeated record into Monday's game against Lawrenceville High School's girls basketball team, and the Lady Pioneers left with the perfect mark intact.

The Lady Pioneers outscored the Lady Indians in each of the first three quarters to claim a comfortable lead, on the way to a 50-40 win in the first Little Illini Conference game of the season.

"We have a hard time playing against physical teams," LHS coach Misty Bellville said. "Tonight I felt like we were outhustled. (Palestine) was just a lot more physical than us. They took us out of trying to run any kind of an offense."

LHS (2-3, 0-1 LIC) couldn't overcome 24 turnovers, countless missed lay-ups and a 4 of 17 showing at the foul stripe.

Lawrenceville made just 17 of 60 shots, 28 percent.

"We just can't finish," Bellville said. "We've got to get that fixed or we're going to have a hard time winning any games."

Calee Fulling made 10 field goals and scored 21 points to pace the Lady Pioneers (6-0, 1-0 LIC). Emily Nehls added 12 points, all before halftime.

Morgan Parrish and Brianna Mefford, a pair of 6-1 freshmen, both scored 10 points for the Lady Indians. Cailyn Andrews added nine points while Kortney Osmon finished with eight.

The lead changed hands five times in the opening period, but the Lady Pioneers led 15-11 at the stop, thanks in part of a 3-pointer by Kelly Rariden.

There were four more lead changes in the second period. LHS took its final lead, 20-19, on Osmon's bucket at the 5:02 mark of the opening period.

Nehls put Palestine on top for good, 24-22, with a pair of foul shots at the 1:57 mark of the second quarter. That was in the midst of an 8-0 run to close a first half that saw Palestine leading, 28-22.

The Lady Indians closed the gap to 32-30 at the 2:40 mark of the third period on two foul shots by Mefford.

Palestine scored the final four points of the third period to take a 36-30 lead into the final stanza, and the Indians got no closer than that the rest of the way.

Lawrenceville rolled to a 50-18 in the junior varsity game. Mefford led the way with 11 points. Parrish and Sydney Sherman both scored 10 for LHS (5-0).

Lawrenceville will return to competition Thursday with game at Marshall.
