The Marion County Lady Knights narrowly defeated visiting George Rogers Clark Lady Cardinals, 52-49, in a double overtime game on Monday.
The Lady Knights (1-0)won thanks to free throws by sophomore guard Samantha Daugherty and freshman point guard Haeli Howard in the second overtime.
Coach Anthony Epps said that while the team missed a lot of free throws during the evening, it was because of fatigue.
“I feel great,” Epps said. “One of the things we are emphasizing at practice is to work hard.”
