Gordon honored as FHS pounds Sayre

By SUSAN RIDDELL State Journal Sports Writer Published:

The Frankfort High girls basketball team spent last week on hiatus, hoping to rest up and fine tune some things as the Lady Panthers head down the home stretch of the basketball season.

Monday night, FHS went back to work, knocking off Sayre 57-28 at F.D. Wilkinson Gym.

"We had to be careful last week because number one, we wanted to stay healthy, and number two, we've got some big games coming up," Frankfort coach Joey Thacker said of his team's week off. "The flu's been going around and now we're starting to get it but we've got a four-day layoff again to get everyone back to where they need to be."

Despite the lopsided win Monday, the Lady Panthers weren't at their best, committing 29 turnovers.

"We've got to get back to concentrating on what we do best," Thacker said. "I will say tonight the tempo was good after the first four minutes of the game. Considering we hadn't been on the floor in a game for 12 days, we looked sloppy at times but at other times we weren't that bad."

Frankfort led 17-4 after one quarter and 31-11 at the half.

The Lady Panthers were leading 35-17 with less than two minutes to go in the third quarter when Jackie Gordon made a steal in the backcourt. Gordon drove in for a layup and after converting, play was stopped as the senior was recognized for scoring 1,000 points.
