Scoring came at a minimum in the season openers for the North Clay sixth-grade girls "A" and "B" squads Thursday night against Edgewood.

In the "A" game, Edgewood came out hard and fast, jumping to a 16-0 lead at the end of the first quarter, easily defeating North Clay 47-11.

Lindsey Potter was able to get the Knights on the board with 2:28 remaining in the second quarter, stopping the Colts' 22-0 run.

The Knights were unable to stop Edgewood's Karly Thornton, who had a huge game with 20 points, seven steals and five assists. Thornton scored the first 10 points and had four steals in the first three minutes of the third quarter as the Colts pushed ahead to a 34-8 lead.

Edgewood dominated the offensive boards as 12 of their 27 rebounds came on the offensive end.

Natasha Barrett led the Knights with six points and seven rebounds, Potter and Leeanna Knight finished with two apiece and Emily Pollard added one point.

Shelby Terrell also finished in double figures for Edgewood with 14 points.

The "B" game was one filled with a multitude of turnovers.

The Knights and Colts combined for a total of 56 turnovers, 35 coming from North Clay.

This hampered the Knights' ability to get shots as they fell to Edgewood as well, 20-6.

The Colts started the game on a 6-0 run, which was ended by a Libby Deckard lay-up with 2:30 left in the first.

The Knights were within striking distance of Edgewood at the half, trailing 12-4, but were unable to get things going in the second half.

Edgewood nearly shutout the Knights for the entire second half, but Hunter Todd was able to toss in a 15-footer as the final buzzer sounded.

Todd, Deckard and Hunter Bowling each pitched in two points apiece in the Knights' loss, while Sydney Brinegar and Shiana Davis tied for the Colts' scoring lead with six each.

Emily Pollard and Karlie Atkinson each pulled down seven rebounds to lead North Clay in that category.

This was the final game of the season for Edgewood, who finishes with a record of 7-3. The Knights (0-1) travel to face rival Clay City on Monday, Dec. 17, at 6 p.m.
