Charlestown Throttles Lady Mustangs 82-28

The Lady Pirates, since losing seven out of last eight meetings with New Washington, came into Tuesday’s game alittle bit hungry.  The final score was just one indication that Charlestown had had enough losing to their rival neighbors to the east.  New Washington’s youth and inexperience caused more than just match-up problems with the Lady Pirates; Charlestown’s defensive advantages all but smothered the few opportunities presented.  Charlestown (3-0), who celebrated the tenth anniversary of the 2005 girls basketball team that won the program’s fourth Regional crown; honored the team by bettering their 74-19 final over the Lady Mustangs (1-4).  Charlestown jumped out to a 19-0 start before taking a 41-8 halftime advantage to the locker room.  The Lady Pirates were led in scoring by Senior Kaitlynn Henning’s 35 points and was named CPPSB’s Coyle Player of the Game.  Senior Justice Burdin added a very solid 15 points; while Senior Shelby Goedeker finished with nine points and some of the game’s toughest defense.  Lexi Logsdon added eight for the winning team.  The Lady Pirates’ 82-28 victory was the greatest winning margin of victory since the fifty-five drumming of Clarksville in 2010.  The Lady Pirates will travel to Henryville this Saturday and to Austin next Wednesday.
