PORTSMOUTH — Ashlee Conley will remember her first starting assignment. The Portsmouth Lady Trojans would like to forget it.
With starter Robin Isaacs out with a minor injury, Conley moved from first substitute to starter and promptly hit six 3-pointers to spark the Chesapeake Lady Panthers to a 60-17 Ohio Valley Conference win over the Portsmouth Lady Trojans on Monday.
Chesapeake (9-3, 6-2) bolted out of the starting gate for a 22-5 lead as Conley drained three 3-pointers and Emily Duncan scored 6 points.
The scoring slowed in the second quarter as the Lady Panthers went up 27-7 at the half.
In the third quarter, Duncan scored 6 points while Brooklyn McComas, Jessica Dillon and Conley all hit 3-pointers and the lead was 46-13.
Conley had a couple more of baskets behind the arc in the fourth quarter as the Lady Panthers coasted to the win.
Chesapeake host Ironton on Thursday.
