Girls Basketball Roundup: Rams toss aside shorthanded Falcons
UPPER SANDUSKY – Riverdale couldn’t stop Taylor Graboski or find a way around its own small roster and foul trouble Saturday as Upper Sandusky powered off 48-38.
The Falcons traveled with only nine players, and three of them fouled out in the fourth quarter.
Compounding the problem was the fact another three Riverdale players were limited to just one varsity quarter after playing four quarters in the junior varsity game. Two from that latter group played before the final period began, resulting in Riverdale finishing the final 1:54 of the game with just four players.
Upper Sandusky had control by then.
Graboski popped in 26 points, grabbed 17 rebounds and blocked six shots to key the Rams, who outscored the Falcons 14-9 in the third quarter to turn a five-point halftime lead into a 39-29 advantage by the end of the period.
Jorden Born added eight boards, Amber Cox snared four steals and Allison added six points and six assists.
Jordyn Wright’s 10 points topped the Falcons, and Bre Parish scored eight. Both fouled out in the fourth quarter.
Rohrbach-led Chieftains roll
FOSTORIA – Danielle Rohrbach ruled inside and three teammates combined for 30 points Saturday in Hopewell-Loudon’s 58-41 win over Fostoria.
The game was moved from Fostoria High to nearby Fostoria Intermediate Elementary School, the district’s former middle school, but the change in venue did little to help FHS.
Rohrbach tallied 18 points and 10 rebounds, using her 6-foot-4 frame to dominate a team whose tallest player stands 5-9.
Lauren Trumpler backed her with 12 points and four steals for the Chieftains (6-5), Courtney Burns had nine points and five assists and Aleta Daniel turned in nine points and six assists.
Jada Hampton’s 16 points paced the Redmen (0-12). Erica Moore added seven points.
Blue Devils overpower McComb
CAREY – Hannah Tong turned in a double-double and Ali Rymer nearly did so Saturday as Carey thumped McComb 57-43.
Tong’s 11 points and 13 rebounds led the Blue Devils (10-1), and Rymer added 15 points and eight boards.
Sydney Wentling chipped in 13 points and Hannah Draper dished seven assists.
Warriors turn away Arlington
SYCAMORE – Kasey Adelsperger tossed in 20 points and had five rebounds Saturday to fuel Mohawk’s 49-41 win over Arlington.
Lynsey Trusty added six points, eight assists and three steals for the Warriors, Julie Adelsperger tallied six points and three steals, and Sarah Runion had four assists and four steals.
Redskins pull away in third quarter
ARCADIA – Arcadia surged ahead in the third quarter and countered St. Wendelin’s rebounding advantage by taking care of the ball Saturday for a 45-38 win.
The Redskins (8-4) trailed 21-18 at halftime before outscoring St. Wendelin 19-7 in the third quarter.
Molly Glick led the way with 16 points, seven rebounds and four blocks and Miranda Palmer added 13 points, four steals and three assists.
Courtney Cramer backed them with eight points and Regina Fox dished five assists for Arcadia, which committed 10 turnovers to St. Wendelin’s 19.
Colleen Fondessy and Kamryn Troike both netted 10 points for the Mohawks (6-6). Troike also grabbed eight of St. Wendelin’s 30 rebounds and Ali Mowrey snared seven. Arcadia had 22 boards.
TC lags behind Truckers
NORWALK – Norwalk stormed off after the first quarter Saturday in a 43-18 Northern Ohio League romp over Columbian.
The Truckers 10-7 at the first stop, but outscored TC 9-1 in the second and 11-4 in the third to gain control.
Valesha Province and Payge Smith each scored six points for Columbian. Province also had 10 rebounds and Michaela Miller snared nine.
