CHESAPEAKE — Talk about the rate of exchange.

The Chesapeake Lady Panthers were able to exchange 30 Wayne turnovers into a 65-27 rout of the Wayne Lady Pioneers on Wednesday in the first round of the Lady Peake Holiday Tournament.

“We were able to pressure them and force turnovers,” said Lady Panthers’ coach Chris Ball.

The Lady Panthers (6-1) will now play the Boyd County Lady Lions in the tournament’s championship game on Friday.

Ball said his team will need a better performance if they hope to win the tournament.

“Overall, our execution and mental aspect of the game wasn’t acceptable. Come Friday, we have to be better in those areas against a team the quality of Boyd County. We’re looking forward to the challenge,” said Ball.

Jordan Porter scored a game-high 23 points and Sydnee Hall had 15 points to lead the Lady Panthers.

Tasha Maynard had 13 points for Wayne.

Porter scored 10 points and Hall had 6 more in the first quarter as Chesapeake jumped out to a 20-6 lead.

The Lady Panthers were up 35-14 at the half. Porter scored 13 more points in the third quarter as Chesapeake extended its lead to 50-24.

In the first game, Boyd County routed Lincoln County 67-33.

Hunter Reeves scored 23 points — she made seven 3-pointers — and Taylor Wheeler had 19 points and Morgan Kenser 12 for the Lady Lions (6-2).

Taylor Lucas had 14 points for Lincoln County (0-8).

Wayne and Lincoln County will meet in the consolation game at 6 p.m. Friday followed by the championship contest.
