The Garrard County girls scored 17 points in the first period but were outscored 45-19 over the next two as Pulaski County took control on its way to a 74-62 win Thursday night at Lancaster.
The Lady Lions survived 10 turnovers in the first quarter to lead 17-16, but Garrard coach Jenny Teater said they couldn't keep up when Pulaski picked up the pace in the second period.
"They just went on a run," Teater said. "They shot the ball extremely well."
Pulaski (19-4) shot 47.6 percent from the field and got 21 more attempts than Garrard. The Lady Maroons took a 61-36 lead after the third quarter, when Tarah Combs scored 12 of her game-high 21 points.
Garrard (8-11) committed 19 turnovers in the second half but only five in the second.
"That helped us come back a little," Teater said.
Garrard shot 50 percent (21-for-42) from the field, including 6-for-10 from 3-point range. Pulaski was 30-for-63 overall and 7-for-17 from 3-point range.
