Lady Admirals rip SDHS, Central to finish 5th in Chop House

After dropping the first game in the Chop House Classic to Jefferson County, 61-56, the Lady Admirals (4-1) jumped back to claim fifth-place Saturday, Nov. 25, with a win against District 4-AAA rival South Doyle 63-41. Farragut beat Central Friday night, 68-44. “I thought they played well, especially coming out at halftime, extending the lead on out,” Farragut head coach Mike Driver said of Saturday’s game. “Some of the girls coming off of the bench did a good job. I thought we did a good job containing Kinsey and Kelsey [Galyon]. They’re two fabulous post players. We still have to play them in the regular season so it’s going to be a tough game when we play them again.”

The Lady Ads shot out to a 6-0 lead behind the shooting of Kiah Simmons and C.J. Dake.

After Stephanie Torrence drained a basket for Farragut, the Lady Cherokees went on a six-point run to make it a two-point game. Farragut answered back with five baskets of its own, two from Torrence and one each by Brittany Doss, Jennifer Rutherford and Dake.

Kinsey Galyon made a basket for the Lady Cherokees with five seconds left on the clock, pulling her team within 10.

The first quarter was the most prosperous for the Lady Ads with 21 points.

Torrence got the second quarter rolling with back-to-back baskets. Torrence, Allison Bosse and Simmons were the lone scorers in the second quarter.

Simmons scored the first basket in the third quarter, tallying the most baskets in the quarter for the Lady Ads with three.

Fouls plagues Farragut, 10 in the first half, 17 on the night. Within 13 seconds of play the Lady Ads had three fouls on three different players: Torrence, Bosse and Doss.

The fourth quarter started out with a defensive stand. Both teams remained scoreless until the six minute mark when the Lady Ads went on a 10-point run. The Lady Cherokees drained back-to-back three-pointers to end the game.

“It feels great,” Simmons said. “It’s a big rival in the area so it’s great to win. We’re defending champions of the regional and we’re just coming back and we’re a young team, so we came back with some energy and just hoped to win.”

Simmons scored 14 points, while Torrence led FHS with 16. Dake tallied nine and Bosse seven.

Against Central, Farragut got off to a fast start and would continue to build on its lead. The Lady Ads scored 23 points each in the second and third quarters, leading by as many as 41 points going into the fourth quarter.
