CLARKSVILLE — The Ladybirds were outscored by a combined 47-16 in the second and third quarters of a decisive Eastern Missouri Conference loss to the Lady Hawks on Thursday night.

North Callaway (4-10, 2-2 EMO) was only down 11-8 after one quarter, but Clopton outscored the Ladybirds 25-10 in the second quarter to carry a 36-18 advantage into halftime. The Lady Hawks then pulled away by outscoring North Callaway 22-6 in the third quarter.

Senior forward Leigha Morrison topped the Ladybirds with seven points and six rebounds. Sophomore guard Olivia Isaacks scored six points.

"Clopton definitely played a solid four quarters, and unfortunately we did not," North Callaway head coach Morgan Beamer said.
