After last-second loss, blowout


CLINTON — Taken out of its game by a quick Greeneville defense, the Farragut Lady Admirals fell to the East Tennessee powerhouse on a last-second three-point shot to open the basketball season.

But the Lady Ads won going away in Clinton two days later.

Losing to Greeneville 50-48 at Lynn E. Sexton Gymnasium Thursday, Nov. 17, Farragut crushed the CHS Lady Dragons 63-21 Saturday.


An 11-0 second-quarter run put the Lady Ads ahead 30-10 by halftime at CHS, as Catelyn Dake had four steals in the first half while Rachel Draper added three. Farragut forced 15 first-half turnovers.

Kara Beth Beverly and Beth Raby each led FHS in scoring with 10 points. Dake scored nine, with Draper, Haley Williams and Kiah Simmons each scoring eight. Freshman Stephanie Torrence added six, followed by Rachel Simmons with four.

Raby’s team-high 23 points, including 10 of 13 from the foul line, was wasted. One problem was Farragut’s lack of clutch passing, ending the game with only three assists — none by point guard Raby.

“We didn’t have a lot of assists, we had to do a lot of things on our own because Greeneville has a really good defense,” Williams said.

Farragut head coach Mike Driver added, “They did force us into a lot of individual stuff. They were a very aggressive, quick team, and made us do some things we didn’t want to do.”

As for Raby’s success, “Beth played very well, she created a lot of things,” Williams said.

Driver said Raby “broke the defense down and drove in there and scored a lot.”

Dake scored eight, followed by Kiah Simmons’ five points. Rachel Simmons and Draper netted four each, followed by C.J. Dake and Williams with two apiece.
