The Lady Panthers played two games on the road and lost back to back games to the Lady Rebels on both sides of the river.

On Friday, the Lady Panthers traveled to rival Owen County Lady Rebels’ home court and lost a heart breaker in overtime by one.

Sophomore Kyndal Curry led the Lady Panthers with 12 points and six rebounds.

Carroll County led the first quarter 19-10 and took a 27-17 lead into the locker room at the half.

The third quarter was flat for the Lady Panthers as the Lady Rebels outscored them nine to three. The Lady Panthers got back in the game in the fourth period but the Lady Rebels knotted the contest at 34 and they were in overtime.

The Lady Rebels outscored the Lady Panthers four to three in OT, bringing the final 37-38.

The Lady Panthers hit the road again on Saturday across the river to Hanover to play the Southwestern Lady Rebels.

Kyndal Curry again had a hot hand as she was high-scorer with 10 and freshman Hannah Devine added nine.

The Lady Panthers never led during the contest, but statistically they matched the Southwestern Lady Rebels in almost every category except where it counted, in scoring.

The Lady Panthers bested the Lady Rebels in steals and were even with 9 assists, 17 defensive rebounds and two blocked shots for each team. The Lady Rebels attempted one more field goal than the Lady Panthers and they had two less turnovers than the Lady Panthers.

The Tuesday night game against Henry County was postponed because of weather and had not been rescheduled by press time. Thursday, December 18, the Lady Wildcats of Gallatin County will travel to Carroll County to face the Lady Panthers.
