HANCEVILLE – Elkmont took away Danville’s offense in the Class 3A Northwest Regionals semifinal game and earned another shot at Lauderdale County in the process.
The Lady Red Devils, who have lost two of three to Lauderdale County this season, will get a fourth shot at the Lady Tigers after dismantling Danville 55-32 Thursday afternoon at Wallace State Community College’s Tom Drake Coliseum.
Danville struggled to get any offense going in the opening quarter, missing its first six shots before Lindsay Simmons scored on a short jumper with 4:14 remaining in the period to cut Elkmont’s lead to 11-2.
Elkmont jumped out to an early lead in the game and never looked back.
Danville went scoreless on its first nine trips up the floor in the first quarter and Elkmont took advantage with a strong start to open up a 55-32 advantage at the half.
The shots didn’t get much better in the third quarter. Danville struggled to score just six points in the quarter, allowing Elkmont to stretch its lead to 44-25 heading into the final eight minutes of play.
The Lady Devils, making their first-ever appearance in the Northwest Regional tournament, finished with a 20-12 record after losing to Lauderdale County two days later in the Class 3A regional championship game.
Danville closed out its season with a 22-10 mark after losing to the Lady Red Devils.
Elkmont’s Jamie Lack scored a team-high 17 points and added 15 rebounds in the win. Bailee Robinson added 14 points, while Brooke Presnell finished with 12 points.
Lack also finished with four blocks, while forcing a lot of bad shots with her size and pressure defense.
Alaina Fitzgerald, playing in her final game for Danville, scored 13 points, including 11 in the first half.
Robinson hit a pair of 3-pointers on consecutive trips down the floor to send Elkmont to a commanding 36-19 advantage in the second half and Danville never recovered.
