WHITESVILLE, Ky.—Cannelton hit only 11 of 51 shots from the field in a 59-35 girls basketball loss to Whitesville Trinity Monday.

“It was a very, very physical game,” said Cannelton Coach Jeff Miller. “But we’ve got to do better than that. And a lot of them weren’t bad shots—our shot selection was a little better than most games.”

“We did hit 12 of 14 free throws (85.7 percent)—that’s a plus.

“And defensively we played really well except for staring at the ball instead of getting in position for a rebound when a shot went up.”

Sarah Powers had 12 points, five rebounds and three assists for Cannelton.

Jaci Garrett added eight points and six rebounds and Brooke Powers grabbed nine rebounds.

Senior guard Ashley Aud led 1-0 Trinity with 21 points, including three three-point baskets.

She scored 17 in the first half but the Bulldogs slowed her with a box-and-one defense the second half.

“As far as manning up the ball, we did very well,” said Miller. “But we’ve got to do better from the weak side. A lot of their baskets came on second and third shots.”

Cannelton, 2-4, is off until the Orleans tourney Dec. 13.
