WHEATFIELD (01/16/2018) While the Crown Point Lady Bulldogs were seeking their first four-game winning streak of the year, the Kankakee Valley Lady Kougars just wanted to continue their regular season dominance.

In the end, the dominance prevailed as the Lady Kougars picked-up a 39-36 victory over the Lady Bulldogs on Tuesday, January 16 at Kankakee Valley High School in Wheatfield.

In the early moments of the game, Kankakee Valley senior guard Lindsey Stokes achieved the 1,000-point plateau with a free throw. As a result, played stopped for a few minutes as she was presented a basketball commemorating the milestone.

While all of Stokes’s four points came on free throws, junior guard Catherine Cavinder led the Lady Kougars with 11 points, while junior forward Kaylee Barrett had 10.

For the Lady Bulldogs, junior Ellie VanDeel led all scorers with 17 points.

Still, the game marked a low shooting night for both teams as Kankakee Valley hit 31 percent from the field, while Crown Point only managed 30 percent.

However, a big difference marked the fact that the Lady Bulldogs committed 19 turnovers as oppose to Kankakee Valley’s 12.In a tight first half, the Lady Bulldogs led 15-13 at the end of the opening quarter, only to trail 28-22 at halftime.

Despite the loss, Crown Point outscored Kankakee Valley 14-11 in a low scoring second half. As a result, Crown Point’s second three-game winning streak of the season came to an end. With the win, Kankakee Valley improved to 15-3, while Crown Point fell to 12-9.


LADY DOG NOTES:
The loss to Kankakee Valley prevented the Crown Point from winning their fourth straight. In 2016-17, the Lady Bulldogs won four straight to start the season and then duplicated the winning streak between December 27 and January 3.
Crown Point has now lost to Kankakee Valley for the third straight year. The last time the Lady Bulldogs defeated the Lady Kougars was on January 20, 2015. Crown Point won that game at home 43-26.

USA-365.com NOTES: Internet radio station USA-365.com will broadcast a Chesterton at Crown Point girls-boys double-header this Friday, Jan. 19, with the pregame show at 5:15 p.m. The Lady Bulldogs tip-off at 5:30 p.m. and boys game tips-off at 7 p.m. CST.
