If the Berryville Lady Bobcats are going to have a successful basketball season, coach Daniel Cornelison has said more than once, they must shoot the ball well.

They’re certainly capable of that, as they demonstrated in a 64-22 victory at Green Forest on Monday, Nov. 15.

The Lady Bobcats made nine three-pointers in the game, including six in a first quarter that saw them outscore the Lady Tigers 28-2.

“We shot the ball really well,” Cornelison said. “We’ve got kids that can shoot. We just played really well.”

Berryville led 36-10 at halftime, then outscored Green Forest 26-7 in the third quarter.

Junior guard Hannah Youngblood hit four three-pointers in the first quarter and finished with a game-high 14 points. Junior Anni Armer added 13 points and freshman Taelor Tomlinson scored all 10 of her points in the third quarter. Seniors Madison Beck and Faith Kelley added eight and nine points, respectively, for the Lady Bobcats.

Leah Evans led Green Forest with 10 points.

Berryville (2-1) played Yellville-Summit at Yellville on Monday night. The Lady Bobcats will play in the Blue Eye Tournament beginning Monday, Nov. 29.
