KyAnn Roe (#53) had four points in Clay City's eighth grade win over Cloverdale.

The Clay City junior girls basketball teams picked up a pair of victories against Cloverdale on Monday evening as the eighth grade downed the Clovers by a convincing 38-6 score and the seventh grade Eels won a narrow 18-17 double-overtime decision.

In the eighth grade game, KyAnn Roe and Shelby Targett got going early with a pair of baskets apiece in the first quarter to stake Clay City to a 10-2 advantage. The Eels' defense held Cloverdale scoreless in both the second and fourth quarters to cruise to a victory.

Lindy Jones got going in the middle two periods, tallying nine second quarter points and another five in the third quarter on her way to a game-high 16 points. Kelley McCullough added nine points for the Eels with Targett contributing seven.

In the seventh grade game, both squads started slowly in the contest, tied at two-apiece after one quarter and the Eels led 6-5 at halftime.

In the second half, both squads were tied after regulation at 14-apiece and were scoreless in the first overtime.

In the second overtime, Lindsey Hughbanks and Kacie Fritz added hoops to get past Cloverdale 18-17.

Chanetel Narlock led the squad with six points and both Hughbanks and Fritz added four points.

Up next for Clay City is their season finale against Eminence on Monday beginning at 6 p.m.
