knock off Musketeers
RURAL MIDDLE POINT — The Fort Jennings girls basketball team was looking to build off its big win over Jefferson Monday night when they invaded The Lancerdome of Lincolnview High School Tuesday night in a makeup game with the Lady Lancers.
The host Lancers came away with a 58-42 non-league win.
Sophomore guard Julia Thatcher and senior center Kaitlyn Brant each scored 11 to lead Lincolnview in the scoring column; the pair was followed by senior guards Katie Dye and Kaylee Thatcher, who both scored nine.
Emily Kehres topped the visitors with 10 points and Macy Schroeder and Gabbi German nine each. Ashley Gable tossed in eight.
The Lady Lancers took a 14-10 lead after a quarter of play and led 25-20 at the break.
Lincolnview gradually pulled away in the second half and was not outscored in any quarter on the night.
The Lady Lancers shot 52.4 (22-of-42) on the night, including 3-of-4 downtown, to Fort Jennings’ 38.1 percent (16-of-42). The Lady Lancers won the battle of the boards 19-15 (8-8 offensively) — Brant led the hosts with five, while Kehres also had five for the Musketeers — and the turnovers 17-21.
The Lady Lancers scored 16 bench points to the Lady Musketeers four.
