Baldwin 49, Louisburg 19

BALDWIN CITY – Going on the road against a state-ranked team is usually a difficult task and it was just that Wednesday for the Louisburg girls basketball team.

The Lady Cats ventured to No. 5-ranked Baldwin for a makeup of game that was postponed last week. Louisburg fell 49-19 to move its record to 5-4 on the season.

It was close game early as both teams struggled to find their footing in the first quarter and the Lady Cats trailed just 6-3 going into the second quarter.

Baldwin eventually got into a rhythm and pulled away as it knocked down several outside shots to score 20 points in the second quarter and took a 26-7 halftime lead. From there, the Bulldogs were able to pull away and not look back.

Louisburg had just three players score in the contest. Sophomore Madilyn Melton led the way with seven points and nine rebounds, while fellow sophomore Megan Foote had seven points and six rebounds.

Senior Carson Buffington finished with five points and seven rebounds. Junior Haley Cain was second on the team in rebounding with eight.

The Lady Cats will compete in the Top Gun Tournament in Wellsville beginning Tuesday. Louisburg is the No. 6 seed and will play No. 3 Wellsville at 6:45 p.m.
