Stone Memorial stomps Lady Pioneers
Emily Mikkola

Stone Memorial wasn't a pleasant guest in Charlie Dalton Gym. The Lady Panthers stomped Warren County 54-28, the home team's largest margin of defeat of the season.

Warren County (8-11) never stood a chance after the Lady Panthers took control with a 12-0 run to end the first quarter. The Lady Pioneers were tied 6-6 before the run, which kept Stone Memorial ahead double figures the rest of the way.

Warren County had a prolonged offensive drought stretching through the second and third quarters. The Lady Pioneers hit only one shot from the field over 10 minutes of game time - a buzzer-beating layup by Emily Mikkola before halftime.

The scoring shortage allowed Stone Memorial to build a 32-13 advantage by the break. The lead swelled to 46-19 by the end of the third quarter.

The Lady Pioneers never threatened in the second half, ultimately taking a 26-point loss to their District 6AAA foe. It was the team's third 20-plus point loss this season, the first two coming in matchups with Blackman.

Warren County finished without a player reaching double figures. Grace Rains led the way with eight points, followed by Tyra Wright with seven and Beth Vaughn with six. Brielee Kelsey came off the bench to score four and Lia Wright hit a fourth-quarter free throw for her lone point.
