Moss gets 1K, but girls unwind in final holiday minutes

Junior Cassidy Moss celebrates her 1,000th career point
with classmates after the Russellville game Wednesday.
RUSSELLVILLE, Ky. – Crittenden County’s girls played perhaps their best 28 contiguous minutes of basketball during the holiday season on Wednesday afternoon against tournament host Russellville. However, the windfall of good tidings unwrapped in the last part of the fourth quarter and the girls headed home empty handed from the First Southern National Bank Christmas Classic, losing 53-42 to the Lady Panthers.

The Lady Rockets lost all three games at Russellville despite being outmatched not once. They either led or trailed by as few as one point in the last half in all three games. Crittenden was up four with just over three minutes to play against Russellville but after the Panther girls tied the game at 40, Crittenden committed three straight turnovers, opening the door for the hosts to sneak away with a win.

Although the girls’ two-tournament holiday record of 1-5 was disappointing, there was a sideline of cheer for Crittenden. Junior Cassidy Moss reached the 1,000-point plateau in her career in the game against Russellville. She scored 17 and classmate Meredith Evans added a career-high one dozen points against the Lady Panthers. Moss had 11 points at the line. The entire tournament was slowed by whistles. In the girls’ three games at Russellville, there 186 foul shots taken.

Crittenden played all six Christmas season games without starting guard Amanda Lynch, who has been gone on a family trip. She is the team’s second leading scorer with a nine-point average.
