JAMESTOWN - Playing at York has always been a difficult proposition for Cannon County.
The long trip to Jamestown was not a factor this time.
Cannon County whalloped the Lady Dragons, 80-15, to improve to 9-0 overall, 2-0 in District 8-AA.
“A lot of crazy things happen at York,” Lionettes Head Coach Michael Dodgen said. “We have never really played well here so this was good. It’s another district win and a district road win so that’s good.”
The game was never in question after the Lionettes jumped out to a 23-5 lead in the first quarter. It was 43-9 by intermission.
Five Lionettes reached double figures, led by Abbey Sissom’s 14 points. Rebekah Faulkner scored 11 and had five rebounds. Kendra Maynard came off of the bench and scored 11. Macy Clements and Madison Walkup each scored 10.
Eleven Lionettes scored in all. Kelli Davis added seven, Kristen Hale had six, Erin McReynolds five, and Taylor Warren, Emily Sissom, and Kaylee Hayes each scored two.
The Lionettes allowed just four field goals. York was a dismal 4-of-40 from the field. Cannon County has held two district foes below 30 points and 12 total field goals.
“As long as we keep playing good team defense we will be OK,” Dodgen said. “Defense has been a consistent quality in the first part of the season. We will find out how good we are defensively (against Smith Co. Tuesday.)”
