The Kirksville Junior Lady Knights fell just short to Heartland 10-8. The game was the second contest for the Juniors and featured plenty of action. Led by Chalee Britt’s 6 points and Sarah Belzer, the Juniors raced to a quick 4 point lead but could not hold on for the last minute as Heartland stormed back to squeak out the win. Abby Allison, Lydia Belzer, and Hosanna Rider all had close shots in the game, but couldn’t quite score.
The Junior Knights will not play again until January when they will once again play Life Church. The first time the two teams played, the Juniors cruised to an easy win.
