Rams rally, rally

again to drop Carey

in N10 clash

CAREY — First Upper Sandusky rallied for the halftime lead, then the Rams rallied for the win.

Carey erased a 10-point halftime deficit, but was then outscored by 10 in the fourth quarter Thursday as Upper Sandusky claimed a 57-47 Northern 10 Athletic Conference win.

Down 14-13 at the first stop, the Rams (12-7, 10-4 N10) looked to gain control with a 19-8 scoring burst to enter the break up 32-22.

But Sadie Arend scored eight of her team-high 20 points in the third period for Carey (4-15, 4-10) to help the Blue Devils knot the score at 40 heading in the final quarter.

Upper Sandusky took over from there, with Alexis Fogle nailing all three of her 3-pointers in the period to fuel a 17-7 scoring run on her way to a game-high 26 points.

Reagan Ward added 10 points for the Rams and Alivia Oney had seven. Oney also had five rebounds and four assists while Fogle snared five steals.

Tiell backed Arend with nine points for Carey and Ellison Roark had seven.
