Lawrenceburg 57, So. Dearborn 10; Girls River Town Round 1 (SEILS Webcast)

Aurora-  A game which appeared to be a mismatch on paper, indeed, turned out to be one sided as Lawrenceburg cruised to a 57-10 victory over host South Dearborn in the opening girls’ game of the 20th Annual River Town Classic.

 
This game was part of our Highpoint Health Basketball Webcast Schedule and can be seen again in HD by clicking here.

For coach Zane White’s Lady Tigers, it was their 17th win in a row against no losses, marking the best start ever in program history.  A year ago, LHS was 16-0 before losing to Scottsburg at Southwestern’s Rumble On The River Tournament.

Win No. 17 came easily for the three-time defending RTC champions.  After a 13-6 lead in the first quarter, the Tigers outscored the Knights 35-1 over periods two and three.

Outgunned from the get go, coach Doug Robertson’s ladies from Aurora lost their biggest gun, Kyrstin Bond, for just over 16 minutes due to foul trouble.  And when on the floor, the senior 1000-point career scorer was often faced with a double team as the Tigers were determined to neutralize SD’s top threat.  Bond finished with no points, quite a feat for LHS against a very good player.

Our Southeastern Indiana REMC Power Players of the Game were Lawrenceburg’s Juliana Kemper and Kierah Lowe.  Kemper scored 15 points before yielding the floor to the bench in the fourth quarter.  Her stat line also included six rebounds, three assists, three steals and two blocks.  Lowe netted eight points and a game-high seven rebounds. She also logged two assists, a pair of blocked shots and a swipe plus was very disruptive in the lane.

Also of note for the Tigers, Tristyn Dennis booked 10 points and two assists and three steals and Chloe Meyer collected eight points, six boards, four dishes, one block and one takeaway.

Zoe Ross led South Dearborn with four points and secured four balls off the glass.

With the win, Lawrenceburg advances to Friday’s title tilt against Switzerland County and will seek its fifth title and fourth straight.  The Lady Pacers defeated Rising Sun 45-34 in the first-round game which followed.  Switz will play for its eighth crown and first since 2017.  South Dearborn will take on the Shiners in the consolation game which opens play Friday at 6 pm.
