The Frankfort High press was in high gear and that spelled disaster for Madison Southern.
The Lady Panthers cruised to a 54-29 win over the Lady Eagles Monday night at F.D. Wilkinson Gym.
It was a good showing for Frankfort, now 10-4. The Lady Panthers were coming off a 22-point loss at Woodford County on Friday.
"I was real pleased that we came out and took care of business after Friday night," FHS coach Joey Thacker said. "In order for us to get accomplished what we need to get accomplished every night, we need to play defense like what we did tonight."
With the game tied at 2-2, Frankfort ran off 15 straight points to close out the first quarter. Four baskets came off steals in the full-court press.
During that run, Jackie Gordon scored eight points and Alex Oder had four. Brittany Wilson chipped in three.
