By GREG CREWS gcrews@thenewsenterprise.com FORT KNOX — Things seem to be clicking for the Elizabethtown Lady Panthers. One night after dismantling highly touted Marion County in a 26-point win, the Lady Panthers struck again, topping 17th District rival Fort Knox, 101-17 on Friday on post. Senior guard Dorian Downs hit 3-of-6 shots from behind the 3-point arc and finished with 19 points to lead Elizabethtown (18-2 overall, 6-1 district). Senior center Alex Jones racked up 17 points, nine rebounds, six rebounds and five steals. Sophomore forward Denisha Nichols had 11 points and five rebounds, sophomore point guard Natalie Greenwell added 10 points and six assists and all 12 varsity players recorded a basket for the Lady Panthers, with 10 scoring six or more points. Senior forward Biancia Zinger, who recorded Fort Knox’s first field goal a little more than 2 minutes into the second quarter, finished with six points and seven rebounds to lead the Lady Eagles (1-15, 0-7). By the end of the first quarter, Elizabethtown had already gotten all the scoring it would need, leading 23-1. The Lady Panthers stretched the lead to 53-4 by halftime and 80-11 heading into the fourth quarter. With 37 seconds remaining, sophomore guard Hannah Hart found Nichols open on the left block, where Nichols banked in a shot to put Elizabethtown over the 100-point mark for the first time in 41 games. UP NEXT: Elizabethtown plays at 5th Region rival LaRue County at 7 p.m. Monday. Fort Knox plays at North Oldham at 6 p.m. Monday. Greg Crews can be reached at 505-1754
