Lady Jags fall to 0-2 after 62-29 loss to Madison Central

CORBIN — By Nathan Hutchinson / For the Times-Tribune

When the Lady Indians turned up the defensive intensity, North Laurel simply couldn’t handle the pressure.

Madison Central forced 32 turnovers, which led to 41 points, and rolled to a 62-29 season-opening win over the Lady Jaguars (0-2) in Richmond.

Senior standout Ashton Feldhaus had a game-best 17 points and senior Larryn Brooks added 13 points as the Lady Indians shot 51 percent from the floor for the game.

“In the second half, we went to half-court traps and some quarter-court traps and that was pretty effective,” Central coach Robbie Cooksey said. “When we can do that and get some easy baskets in transition we are going to be hard to stop.”

By halftime the Lady Indians were already in control.

In the opening minutes of the second half, they turned the game into a blowout.

Central opened the third quarter on a 14-0 run and went on to out-score the Lady Jaguars 22-1 in the period. North Laurel didn’t record its first field goal of the second half until there was just 3:15 left in the fourth quarter.

The Lady Jaguars shot 10 percent from the field in the second half (2-of-20).

North Laurel had a 1-0 lead in the opening minute, but Central closed the first quarter on a 13-2 run. The Lady Indians’ lead grew to 34-13 before the Lady Jaguars put together a bit of a run.

Hannah Gray and Brooke Carpenter both hit three-pointers as North Laurel got back within 13 points.

Central led 36-22 at halftime.

Central used 10 players in the first half, seven of which scored.

For a team trying to develop some depth, a season-opening blowout victory was a good opportunity to get younger players much-needed experience. Eight Lady Indians played at least 10 minutes and 10 players recorded a point or a rebound.

North Laurel was without two starters — Kayla Bruner and Kendall Ellington — and shot just 28 percent from the floor for the game.

Gray had a team-high 10 points for the Lady Jaguars, Hannah Lawson had eight points, Carpenter had six.

    The word hero is used a little too loosely for my taste these days.
    To be honest, it’s been used way too much for a long time and I’m just as guilty as the next guy.
