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.
Kanelandâ€™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.
â€œWe made some easy baskets early,â€ KHS coach Ernie Colombe said. â€œThe girls were playing hard and we didnâ€™t always make the right decisions with the ball out there, but I canâ€™t fault the effort.â€
Varsity tries to rebound against DeKalb on Friday, Jan. 23.
