If you watched the Lady Knights play last year and then you watched on Saturday you would notice some changes and some similarities. Last year the Ladies depended heavily upon a suffocating press to defeat Life Church. This year, the press was totally absent. The result, however, was the same as Kirksville defeated Life Church 56-12.
Lindsay Howd led the Lady Knights with 12 points and numerous rebounds. Cambre Britt added 11 points of her own as well as some pretty nifty defense. Danika Askew, Naomi Rider, Chalee Britt, Joy Tilinski, and Megan Huber all added 6 points apiece. Kris Sturm chipped in 4 to round out the scoring. Everyone on the roster scored in the second half and the defensive pressure kept the Lady Lions off of the board until deep into the 3rd quarter.
During the game, the Lady Knights hit four 3-pointers, including two by newcomer Huber. Last season saw several games where the team did not make a single shot behind the arc.
The Lady Knights play Thursday at Sunnydale. The game starts at 6 pm. Last year Kirksville won both meetings with Sunnydale, including an exciting come-from-behind victory by one point in last seasons opening game.
