CHESAPEAKE — Looks don’t matter that much to Chesapeake coach Chris Ball.

Although Ball wasn’t happy with his team’s performance, he was still glad his Lady Panthers got past the West Carter (Ky.) Lady Comets 45-37 on Monday.

“It was an ugly win, but it was a win,” said Ball. “We did play pretty good defense, but nothing else about they way we played looked very good. Never the less, we still won.”

Jordan Porter had 19 points, Atiya Spaulding scored 9 points and Jackie Nelson had 3 steals to lead the Lady Panthers (5-1).

On the ugly side, the Lady Panthers were guilty of 22 turnovers.

Lexie Berry scored 17 points to lead West Carter (2-6).

Megan Centers scored all 8 of her points in the first quarter as West Carter took a 10-9 lead. Porter had 7 of Chesapeake’s points.

The Lady Panthers rallied to take a 16-15 lead at the half. Porter then scored 8 points in the third quarter and the lead was 30-25.

Berry had 7 points in the fourth quarter, but Sydnee Hall made 3 of 4 free throws and Anna Mayo was 2 of 2 to clinch the win.
