Eaglettes Exact Revenge, Pull Away in Second Half at Warren County


The Shelbyville Central Golden Eaglettes put a halt to their four-game skid as they methodically pulled away from the Warren County Lady Pioneers on the road, 47-29, on Tuesday.

After a shocking loss on their home floor on January 12th, the Eaglettes slowly but surely took care of business in the second matchup between the two sides, especially defensively.

Paige Blackburn led Shelbyville with a game-high 18 points, and Lily Brown was not far behind as she added 16 points of her own.

Warren County’s Amanda Medley was the only other double-digit scorer, and she led her team with 11 points.

The game didn’t necessarily start out like a blowout because after the first eight minutes, the two teams were deadlocked at 8-8. However, the Eaglettes began to find some sort of rhythm offensively, mainly through Lily Brown. She scored six of her 16 points in the second quarter alone as she led her team into the halftime locker room up 20-13.

The third quarter was simply more of the same: tough defense from Shelbyville paired with just enough offense to get by, as the Eaglettes took a 31-21 lead into the final frame. 

From there, Blackburn scored 10 of her 18 points in the fourth quarter alone, and she helped ensure that the Eaglettes would go home with their first district win of the season, 47-29.

Warren County falls to 4-18 (1-6) and will continue their homestand as they welcome Columbia for another district clash on Friday.

The Eaglettes improve to 12-8 (1-4) and will travel to Spring Hill on Thursday night, LIVE on WLIJ 98.7 and AM 1580 starting at 5:45 p.m.
