The Sophomore Lady Knights outscored visiting A.C.C. in 3 quarters of their matchup Saturday at the Hoops for a Cure Shootout, but a disastrous 3rd quarter cost them the game, as 7 turnovers led to easy baskets for the visitors while limiting the home team to only 6 shots of their own. After seeing their 4-point half-time lead turn into a 6-point deficit, the ladies settled down, regained the lead at 37-36, but couldn’t sustain the comeback and eventually fell to the Chargers, 42-39. The ladies had scoring contributions from 6 players, led by Taylor Carlson with 15 points, including a season-best and team-best 8 of 10 from the free throw line. Mya Saltijeral and Kenzie Schueler added 8 points each while Sophie Mullins tossed in a season-best 6 points coming in off the bench. Saltijeral had a nice all-around floor game with 5 assists, 4 steals and 2 rebounds, Lexie Johnson added 3 steals and 3 rebounds while Olivia Sheehan contributed 5 rebounds and a couple steals. The Knights have 4 games in the upcoming week, with away games at Yorkville, Plainfield South and Genoa-Kingston, before finishing up the season with a home game on Friday night versus LaSalle-Peru.
