Ironladies Beat Meigs on the Free-Throw Line< < Back to
The Lady Marauders gave up too many fouls in their road game against the Ironladies, costing them a 44-31 loss.
Jackson won the matchup from an unlikely source—the free-throw line. Altogether, the Ironladies scored 33 of their 44 points from the line, missing only eight of all their attempts.
Rebeka Green dominated the score line with 25 points, more than half of the Ironladies’ total points on the night. She led the Ironladies with 17 points in the first half of the game, mostly with foul shots, and continued this pattern into the second half.
Lauren Parks also contributed to Jackson’s win with her ability from the line, including five free-throw points in a row. Parks was the Ironladies’ second-highest scorer at the end of the night with nine points.
Meanwhile, Meigs’ night was a struggle. The Lady Marauders only held the lead once, when Maddison Fields drained an early three-pointer, but early foul trouble costed the squad the lead for the rest of the game.
Meigs also had a difficult night trying to put points on the board due to Jackson’s effective defense. The Lady Marauders could not capitalize on their opportunities, highlighted by both Maddison Hendrix’s 1-8 mark from the three-point line and Kassidy Betzing’s 5-15 field-goal mark.
Despite their troubles, Meigs worked hard to uphold its chemistry. Even when down by double-digits, Meigs continued to work as a team and move the ball down the court.
Meigs will finish their regular season at home against Wahama High School this Saturday, Feb. 6. Jackson Ironladies will also play at home against Gallia Academy.
