Christian Academy holds off Bulldogs

-A A +A

CANNELTON—Cannelton hit only 20.9 percent from the field and 48.4 percent at the free-throw line in a 37-35 girls basketball loss to Christian Academy of Indiana Saturday.
“We just came out flat and we never did have a good spurt,” said Cannelton Coach Mike Garrett.
Taylor Lawalin’s leaving the game with a knee injury midway through the third quarter didn’t help the Bulldogs’ cause.
Garrett feared it could be a season-ending injury, though that wasn’t known for sure at press time. She was scheduled to have a magnetic resonance imaging done on it Wednesday afternoon.
Still Cannelton kept the game close all the way.
The Warriors built a six-point lead with a minute left. But Cannelton cut it to two points and called a timeout with 0:03 left after the Warriors missed two free throws.
The Bulldogs didn’t get a shot off after the timeout, though.
Mikah Hemmings led the Bulldogs with 18 points and 13 rebounds. Allicyn Garrett added 10 rebounds.
Hemmings and Mollie Ingle each made three steals.
Nicole Kauchak led 1-4 Christian Academy with 13 points and 11 rebounds.
Cannelton, 3-5, will host West Washington Saturday at 11 a.m.
