TERRE HAUTE -- The Northview Knights are struggling to find consistency early in the season and in the team's second game, Fountain Central took advantage to earn a win, 57-50.

The Knights opened with a 12-2 early lead and held a 17-9 lead after the first quarter, but much like the opening game, foul trouble caused Northview their leading scorer, Spring Raines.

Raines headed to the bench after playing just four minutes in the first half and picking up a second foul. To that point, she had scored six points for the Knights.

The Mustangs took advantage of an eight turnover second quarter in which Northview scored just four points. Fountain Central closed within a point with 12 seconds left in the half on a free throw by Kenzi Lindquist. The Mustangs then took the lead into the break when Natalie Robinson drilled a 3-pointer from near half court at the buzzer.

Fountain Central pushed their lead to as much as 40-25 in the third quarter and opened the half with seven consecutive points.

But Raines started a rally for the Knights, scoring all nine of her team's points in the quarter.

Heading into the fourth quarter, Northview trailed 41-30, but Raines poured in 13 points to get the Knights within 53-50, but she was whistled for her fifth foul with 1:23 left in the game. Fountain Central scored the game's final four points to close out the win.

Spring Raines led the team with 28 points with Stormi Raines adding 10 and was charged with defending Robinson, the Mustangs' top player. Emily Phillips added six points for Northview and had six rebounds along with Shelby Colson. Carlee Bell had three assists.

The Knights (1-1 overall) plays Tuesday at Riverton Parke.

Clay City overcomes late deficit for victory

EMINENCE -- For the second season in a row the Clay City Eels opened the season with a victory over Eminence.

This time around Clay City hit the road and came away with a road victory, overcoming an 12-point second half deficit to take a 67-63 season opening win.

Clay City had their hands full with Indiana University-bound recruit Aulani Sinclair, who went off for 33 points, including four 3-pointers. However, the Eels got some big efforts of their own as four players reached double-digits.

Playing in their first high school games, freshmen, Carmela Roeschlein and Brielle Drelick, were two of those players to hit double figures and they were aided by 12-point night's from seniors Brittney Glass and Devyn Bridgewater.

"We were able to come back from 12 down in the third quarter," said first-year head coach Chris Ames. "We hit some late free throws to get the win. It was a great team effort. The girls all hung in."

Kelly McCullough, who missed most of last season following a knee injury, debuted with a four-point, six rebound night and Roeschlein added four steals on defense for Clay City.

Roeschlein, Drelick and Bridgewater each knocked home a pair of 3-pointers for Clay City. Roeschlein topped the team with 22 points followed by 17 from Drelick.

Clay City hit 17-of-25 free throws in the game while Eminence sank 15-of-20.

The Eels have a big home opening game against Shakamak on Tuesday night that counts for both the TRC and SWIAC races.
