A strong Lady Knight run on Friday evening had host Glenbard South reeling.

But Glenbard South returned the favor and with greater authority in a 53-43 handling of KHS.

On Tuesday, Batavia handed the visiting Kaneland crew a 58-37 loss.

Kaneland’s mark fell to 4-14 with a 1-7 record in the Western Sun Conference.

Against the Lady Raiders, KHS stormed out to a 17-10 lead, but pressure and defense took its toll on the Lady Knights, which lead to a 27-24 halftime deficit. The third quarter saw GS pull away with a 45-35 lead.

Andie Strang, Sara Rose, Alyssa Galvan and Mallory Carlson each had seven points to pace the Lady Knights. Kaneland was 8-for-19 from the foul line.

“We made some easy baskets early,” KHS coach Ernie Colombe said. “The girls were playing hard and we didn’t always make the right decisions with the ball out there, but I can’t fault the effort.”

Varsity tries to rebound against DeKalb on Friday, Jan. 23.
