After a closely-played first half, the Lady Knights hit some big threes and used pressure defense to pull away in the second half for the 47-32 victory.
Mackenzie Riggenbach started the scoring with a long two for the Lady Knights. Rileigh Stockwell then hit a free throw, followed by a short jump shot, giving the Lady Wildcats the early 3-2 lead. Riggenbach hit a three on the next possession for Crestview but Hannah Sensibaugh answered with a bucket to tie the game at 5-5.
Jefferson scored the next seven points of the game on two buckets by Stockwell and a three by Katie Goergens. The Lady Knights got two free throws by Riggenbach, giving her all seven of the team’s first-quarter points, before the end of the first quarter, leaving the score 12-7 in favor of Jefferson.
