Lexington Catholic shot 51.1% from the field, connected on nine of 10 free throws, and pulled down 15 rebounds.  The Lady Knights scored 23 points off 18 Clinton County turnovers, and held a 19-1 advantage in bench scoring.  Clinton County shot 54.3% from the field including a sizzling 11 of 23 from beyond the arc.  The Lady Bulldogs connected on five of six free throws, and grabbed 23 rebounds.
