Terre Haute South girls hold off Northview's surge

Braves improve to 4-3 with 53-50 victory

TERRE HAUTE — A funny thing happened on the way to a Terre Haute South blowout victory Tuesday night at Northview High School. The Knights fought back and nearly pulled out a win.

Three-point baskets by Kennedy Williams and Lauren Perrelle and free throws by Kylie Fendrick and Lauren Hambrock preserved a 53-50 win for the Braves over the Knight.

The win improved South to 4-3 on the young high school girls basketball season.

“I told our players the main thing I was happy with, was when we got down by one at the end, for a young team, we kept our composure. We were able to get up by five, not too long after they got the lead, so we didn’t buckle under the pressure and luckily held on,” South coach Cara Stuckey said.

Northview coach Scott Buell really wanted the win, but happy with how the now 2-3 Knights rallied from a 30-13 deficit to take the lead in the fourth quarter.

“I was very proud of how we played the second half. I was disappointed with the loss, but the way we fought back, how hard we played in the second half. We caused a lot of havoc on defense. Our offense started to get a little better flow to it. It was a lot of fun in the second half,” Buell said.

South’s balanced attack wasled by Hambrock with 15 points and seven rebounds and Perrelle with 15 points and three steals.

Northview was led by Mallory Smith with 20 points and 12 rebounds and Mikayla Rowan with 18 points and eight rebounds and three steals.

South built a 17-point lead 13 minutes of the game with Perrelle and Hambrock leading the way. But at the same time, the Braves were getting into foul trouble.

The Braves were called for eight fouls in the first quarter. Center Bailee Williams, Fendrick, Meghan Etling each had two fouls in the first period.

South closed the first period and opened the second with a 13-0 run with Kayla Speth, Perrelle and Hambrock doing the scoring. Hambrock scored seven straight points in the stretch.

But Northview countered with an 8-1 run over the final two minutesof the half, cutting South’s lead to 31-21 at halftime.

“We had them right were we wanted them. And then we let the right back in [the game]. Give them credit. We didn’t execute at the offensive end and the foul trouble hurt us,” Stuckey.

Northview’s Rowan scored 15 of her 18 points in the second half and 11 in the third quarter. Plus Smith netted seven more points and Northview closed to within four, 43-39, going into the fourth quarter.

“One of our main focuses was to limit [Rowan’s] touches. We obviously didn’t do that tonight. Then getting into foul trouble hurt as well,” Stuckey said.

South missed two inside shots in the opening minute of the fourth quarter and Northview’s McKenzi Kumpf and Smith each hit free throws to bring the Knights within one. With 6:10 to play, Rowan put back a Smith miss for two points and a 45-44 Northview lead.

South, 11-21 at the free throw line for the game, missed the front in of two one-and-bonus free throws, allowing Northview to lead.

But with five minutes to play Kennedy Williams and Perrelle hit back-to-back threes to give the Braves a 50-45 lead. Rowan scored for Northview off a South turnover.

With 57 seconds left Northview’s Payton emerged from a mid-court scrum with the ball. Northview missed its shot at the bucket and South’s Fendrick and Hambrock hit free throws.

  • Andy Amey: Just a small trip to talk about this time

    To paraphrase Carl Spackler, the heavy stuff’s not going to come for quite awhile. So while it’s true that I’m back from a week’s vacation, it’s not time — yet — for the big vacation column. Trips to Noblesville, Brunswick and Reelsville, while providing some nice family time, don’t really have the cachet to fill newspaper space.
