Greens Matney No-Hits Lady Colonels By SEABORN ELLZEY JPI Sports Two of,this regions elite pitchers went head to head last tuesday evening at Lady Colonel field. Mony Matney of Green County and Reagan Kingrey of Caverna lived up to their stellar reputations as Matney fashioned a no-hitter allowing only two base runners while Kingrey's no-hit bid faltered in the fourth inning and she finished with a four hit 3-0 loss Green posted a lone run in the fourth and two more in the fifth while Cavema never seriously mounted a scoring threat but in their defense they consistently put the ball in play but as Wee Willie Keeler once said,"Hit em where they aint", however the Cavemians were hittin em where they were. Kingrey registered five strikeouts while Matney hid six but the Lady Dragons had a huge edge in defense with only one error. The Cavernian's infield play let them down allowing two of Green's runs to be unearned,that being said they are young just as the season is and im- provement should progress. The Lady Colonels outfield of Madison Faulkner, Hanna Payton and Alexis Woodard looked solid with sterling defensive play and good arm strength. The Lady Colonels next home contest Will be against Campbellsville March 29 with a 5:00 pm start. The Cav- ema record now stands at 1-2.

"We played hard and did a lot of things we wanted to do. We just " fetl.hort," said'CUhead i tum appeared to be in fa- vor of the in-state team five points proved to be the large CU lead of the night. The lea] swapped hands four times early in the second half be- fore Freed-Hardeman streaked ahead on a 13-0 run. The Lady Tigers went cold from the field missing three shots and tuning the ball over three times as Freed rallied. Tate banked in a 3-point shot from the wing as the shot clock expired with 10:46 to play. The bas- ket made it.a 10-point coach Ginger Clvin., ...... One area that the Lady Tigers fell short was on the glass. The Lady Ti- gers were out rebound- ed 44 to 20, including 19 FHU offensive re- bounds. "That's been our Achilles heel all sea- son. We went with a smaller lineup and did a good job early. We've got good rebounders, just not experience," CU head oach Ginger Colvin said. "When you get somewhere like this, you've got to be able to rebound the basketball. You're not going to win games, if yo u don't." Both teams took a few minutes to get going Thursday night, but five early points by Cumber- land's Natalie Shumpert helped set the tone for a 10-point first half for the senior 2,000-point club member. She led the Lions to a nine-point lead, 18-9, with 9:39 to play in the opening half. Campbellsville slowly chipped away in the first half, cutting the margin to three, 30-27, on Katie Allen's second 3-pointer of the ge with 2:17 to play. Senior Mrashi Kar- umba, a transfer from Freed-Hardeman's rival Union University, later drained a game-tying 3 with 31 seconds left, to make the score, 30-30, entering halftime. Campbellsville fresh- man starter Lindsey Burd gave the Lady Ti- gers their first lead of the game to open the second half after a FHU turn- over and steal by Mack- enzie Lee. Lee followed with a 3-pointer to put Campbellsville up five, 35-30. While momen- game, 52-2',qtlld ws the breaking point. Tate followed with a second 3 from the right cor- ner, across from FHU's bench. Ellen Sholtes ended the run with a basket, but Freed only strung to- gether another one. This time it was a 9-0 burst to lead by 20 points, 64-44, with 4:50 to play. The Lions c0sted the rest of the way. "They banked that 3 and came right back down and hit that other 3. We were winded at that point. 1 had my entire defense in and couldn't sub and got a bad rotation going, and it snowballed from there," Colvin said. Freed-Hardeman leads the nation in scor- ing defense, allowing an average of 47.2 points per game. CU's offen- sive production was its second lowest of the season, second only to a 49 point total against Cumberland (Tenn.) in the. same building two weeks during the Mid- South Conference cham- pionship game. Karumba was the only Lady Tiger to score in double figures with 11 points, eight in the first half. Lee followed with nine, while senior 3-point shooter Court- ney Clifton was held to seven points.
