Two girls basketball teams going in opposite directions met on the court Saturday at Trinity Lutheran High School’s Bollinger Athletic Complex.

Trinity had won six of its last eight games, while Crothersville had lost 15 straight.

The host Cougars scored the first 23 points of the first quarter and never looked back in claiming the 84-32 win against the Tigers.

“For some reason in the first quarter, their press was no different than what we have seen all year, but we got panic in our eyes,” Tigers coach Kevin Hensley said. “Lea (Grissmer) in practice usually rolls by people when they come up on her, but today, she wouldn’t, and I don’t know why.”

Alexis Adair scored Crothersville’s first two baskets early in the second quarter. The Cougars’ Mariah Nolan and the Tigers’ Savannah Basil later traded 3-pointers, and Trinity led 40-11 at the break.
