Lady Owls Fall at Perry in Overtime

Owsley County led for the first three quarters until Perry Central was able to tie the game and take a lead midway through the last quarter. For the rest of the game it was a back and forth affair with both teams shooting good percentages and making clutch shots. Perry was able to gain a lead in the overtime and Owsley was forced to foul and the Lady Commodores were able to convert 11/12 from the free throw line to secure the hard fought victory.

Both teams came out firing on all cylinders. Owsley sophomore guard Addie Terry scored 7 first quarter points and freshman center Macey Brown added 6 as Owsley won the first quarter 18-16. Senior guard Carly Smith took over in the second quarter scoring 9 as Owsley held a slim 34-31 halftime lead. The Lady Commodores’ sophomore guard Taylor Couch scored 11 in the first half and junior guard Kyra McAlarnis had 9.

The Lady Owls continued to lead after the third quarter 57-54 but just couldn’t shake the Lady Commodores. McAlarnis continued her good play adding 6 more in the quarter and senior guard Emmalee Neace netted 8. Terry scored 9 in the period for Owsley.

Perry finally caught up with Owsley in the fourths quarter and actually had a 1 point lead for a while.  For the rest of the period it was back and forth until the final horn sounded with both teams totaling 66 points.

Perry got out first in the overtime with Taylor Couch knocking down some huge shots and from there on they kept the lead. Owsley fouled but the Lady Commodores were money at the line down the stretch. When the overtime ended Perry Central came out on top by a score of 89-82.  Both teams were solid from behind the arc, with Owsley making 10 treys and Perry Central 9.
