The flow of the final game of the regular season for the Kalida Lady Wildcats and the Continental Lady Pirates started out with the Pirates from the opening tip and carried to the final buzzer as the guests put the spoils on Senior Night in Kalida with a 32-26 Putnam County League victory.
The Pirates (15-7, 5-2 PCL) scored 10 of the first 12 points in the contest and went on a 13-2 run in the first half to set the tone. Taylor Williamson led all scorers for Continental with 10 points; Leva Weller added eight.
On the home-team side, Jackie Gardner led the LadyCats (13-8, 4-3 PCL) with eight markers.
Weller hit the opening basket from the low post just seconds into the game and only a Julia Vandemark bucket for Kalida stopped the scoring spurt by the guests. Kalida shot just 3 of 22 in the first half and only 9 of 42 in the game.
However, the Pirates did not fair much better; connecting on just 7 of 23 in the first 16 minutes and only 12 of 39 in the contest. The home team was able to take the third frame, outscoring their guests 12-7 and drawing to within five at 17-12 when Gardner hit a bucket with 5:32 to go in the frame.
