Panthers roll over Liberty Christian

ELWOOD — The Elwood Lady Panthers left little doubt as to who the victor would be Friday night as they hosted the Liberty Christian Lady Lions.

Elwood scored early and often on their way to a 73-18 win over the visiting Lady Lions. Elwood started quickly, jumping to an 11-0 lead as senior guard Jessie Noone scored four quick points in the first 20 seconds.

Elwood continued the domination throughout the first quarter, forcing the Lady Lions into 12 turnovers and two missed field goal attempts. Liberty’s only points of the first quarter came on two Kelsey Flowers free throws as Elwood led 27-2.

“We really wanted to get a pace going tonight,” Elwood coach Mickey Hosier said. “We put in a couple of different presses that hopefully we can use later in the year.”

Elwood kept it up in the second quarter as the lead grew to 43-10 at halftime behind 17 points from Noone and eight points from Tenasha Stephens. For the half, Elwood forced Liberty Christian into 19 turnovers and just three made baskets. The Lady Panthers turned the ball over 11 times but made 14-of-33 field goal attempts, including five 3-pointers.

The third quarter was not much better for Liberty as the Lady Lions were able to put just two points on the board on a bucket by Melody Davidson. The Lady Panthers led 62-12 after three and were well on their way to their second win of the season against one loss.

For Liberty Christian, it was a night to take some lessons. “The skill level of our girls does not compare, but we learned more than Elwood tonight” Liberty Christian coach Jim Clark said. “We can take a lot from this. We’ve got a good group of girls.”

Elwood was led by Noone’s 17 points. Stephens finished with 10 while Katelyn Leisure and McKenzie Wilson had eight apiece. All 11 players that saw time for Elwood scored. “I thought our girls respected the game” Hosier said of his team’s play in the blowout. “Some of our backups played a lot and played hard”. Liberty Christian (2-2) was led by Davidson’s seven points, Baylee Oren had four and Monica Watkins had three.

Elwood (2-1) travels to Sheridan tonight while Liberty Christian hosts Fall Creek Academy on Monday.

  • SPT - HB0731 - Colts Camp - Werner - 319 Werner's progress evident at Colts Camp

    Bjoern Werner's rookie training camp was rather quiet. The German-born outside linebacker went through individual drills and worked hard in full-team sessions, but he was overwhelmed by all the new information he was processing. And it was holding him back. When the season started, Werner was further set back by a foot injury that cost him three games, and he finished the year with just 2.5 sacks. Then the former Florida State star went to work.

  • SPT - HB0731 - Colts Corner - HB Colts Notes: Thomas, Hilton hurt in Wednesday's practice After a physical practice Wednesday afternoon at Anderson University, the Indianapolis Colts are hoping they have not lost another starter. Left guard Donald Thomas hit the ground following an 11-on-11 running drill and was visibly upset when he finally was helped to his feet. He threw his mouthguard away in anger and attempted to walk off the injury with trainers away from the rest of his teammates.

  • SPT - HB0731 - Colts Camp - Fleener - 206 Colts focusing on situational improvement One year ago, the focus in Indianapolis Colts training camp was on turnovers. The team had committed far too many in 2012 and was determined not to repeat its mistakes. The theme at Anderson University carried over to the field, and the Colts' 14 turnovers were the fewest in the NFL last year.
