GLASGOW — Monroe County cruised to a win Friday night over the Barren County Trojanettes 73-47 in girls' high school basketball.

The Lady Falcons had a 7-0 lead before Madison Clements scored her first and only field goal of the first half. Clements is the Lady Falcons' leader, her 20-point-per-game average qualifies her as their most potent weapon but, on this night, Monroe showed they are not a one-woman team. Lady Falcons coach Dwayne Murray said he “knew they were going to try to stop Madison (Clements), “but we have four other players out there who can score, plus we have a couple who come off the bench who are pretty good.”

The lead grew to 12 points, behind the scoring of Monroe's Molly Harlin and Lauren Turner before Barren County was able to score their first basket. The 12-point margin grew to 13 by the end of the quarter, despite Kennedy Logsdon's coming off the bench to inject energy into Barren County's effort. It was as close as the Trojanettes would get the rest of the night. The Lady Falcons five-guard lineup was able to put pressure on the back court of Barren County with success. Murray named it as one of the keys. “We were able to keep pressure on them and keep them from running their offense.”
