Frankfort Coach Candi Roten started the following lineup: 5-7 So. Mattie Hutcherson, 5-9 So. Tessa Barnes, 6-2 Sr. Dana Green, 5-6 Jr. Rachel Williams, and 5-3 So. Shanice Brown. Tates Creek Coach Justin Cheatham countered with 5-7 Jr. Christa Olson, 5-8 So. Lizza Jones, 5-11 So. Jasmine Franklin, 5-5 Jr. Kyleigh Kreyenbuhl, and 5-5 Jr. Betsy Goodin.
Tates Creek never trailed in a game in which they easily defeated Frankfort 59-34. Turnovers were Frankfort's Achilles heel as numerous turnovers led to several easy Tates Creek runouts for baskets. Frankfort's offense was also hampered by three fouls in the first quarter on 6-2 Sr. post player Dana Green. Both schools are in the process of rebuilding but both teams are relatively young and Coaches Roten and Cheatham are firmly committed to improving their programs.
Tates Creek shot 45% from the field and connected on 11 of 22 free throws. Frankfort shot 48% from the field and connected on 12 of 23 free throws.
Kyleigh Kreyenbuhl led four Tates Creek players in double figures with 17 points including two three point baskets. Jasmine Franklin, Christa Olson, and Betsy Goodin added 14, 12, and 10 points respectively. Tessa Barnes led Frankfort with 12 points. Dana Green and Mattie Hutcherson added six points each.
