Hot shooting leads Lady Jackets over North Bullitt, 82-70
The Woodford County High School girls' basketball team beat North Bullitt, 82-70, Monday, Feb. 11 at the Hive. The Lady Jackets took care of the ball and were able to feature an inside-out attack. Delaney Enlow and Kayla Harlow were dominant in the paint, and Abbie Hudson and Nia Jaco hit three-pointers.
"We have been struggling shooting the basketball, so it was nice to see us knock some down tonight," said WCHS Coach Steve Jaco. "It was a good effort, and I hope we can learn from what we accomplished tonight and carry it over for next week at the district tournament."
Harlow scored six of Woodford's first nine points of the game, and Jaco added a three-pointer to give the Lady Jackets a 9-8 lead midway through the first quarter. The Lady Eagles went on a 5-0 run, but Woodford tied the game at 13-13 on a terrific move in the post by Harlow to end the quarter.
The Lady Eagles opened the second quarter with a three-pointer, but Woodford responded with baskets by Hudson and Enlow to take a one-point lead. After a basket by the Lady Eagles, Woodford went on a 5-0 run that prompted a timeout by North Bullit. Hudson and sophomore Adriana Jackson hit three-pointers, and Woodford led 34-27 at halftime.
The Lady Eagles cut the Woodford lead to five points, but Enlow scored in the paint and Hudson hit another three-pointer to give the Lady Jackets a 10-point lead midway through the third quarter. Harlow was unstoppable in the third quarter, scoring eight points in the post and Woodford led 55-43 after three quarters.
The Lady Eagles began the fourth quarter on a 6-2 run, but Woodford regained momentum on a pair of blocked shots by Enlow that led to a couple of fast-break baskets for Woodford. Hudson hit a pair of three-pointers, and Harlow blocked a shot to keep the Woodford lead at 12 points. The Lady Jackets were 8-for-8 at the free throw line in the final minute to clinch the win.
"I feel like we handled their defensive pressure well tonight," said Enlow. "Having Abbie hitting all of the three-pointers helped relieve some pressure on us down low, and I feel like we just had a good, well-rounded game tonight."
The Lady Jackets lost, 63-29, to Anderson County Feb. 8. The Lady Jackets struggled against the Lady Bearcat defensive pressure and could not get anything going offensively. Harlow had seven points and 11 rebounds, and Enlow had seven points and 10 boards. Sophomore guard Halee Hood scored her first points of the season when she made a three-pointer.
