VINCENNES -- Forgive the Clay City Eels if they simply want to put their last three games behind them. Undoubtedly the team will take several lessons from losing its first three contests of the season against a host of tough squads.

The latest of the three opponents was top-ranked Vincennes Rivet, which followed on the heels of fifth-ranked White River Valley and seventh-ranked Turkey Run.

Clay City hung tough for much of the first half on Tuesday night against the Patriots, leading 11-9 after the first quarter. However, the Patriots' constant pressure finally took over in the second quarter as Vincennes Rivet finished the half on a 16-2 run over the final 5:50 to lead 30-15.

The Patriots' Sarah Young, who hit five 3-pointers in the game, drilled a 25-foot shot at the buzzer to punctuate the run.

Vincennes Rivet scored 49 points in the middle two quarters before emptying its bench with five minutes remaining in the game.

Clay City got 14 points from Brielle Drelick and nine from Devyn Bridgewater.

Rivet forced 26 Clay City turnovers in the game and hit just six-of-11 free throws. The Patriots also struggled from the line, hitting only 9-of-20 from the line.

Clay City (4-3 overall) travels to Linton tonight at 6 p.m.
