OTTOVILLE — Ottoville bounced back from a slow start with a solid second period and went on to take a 56-46 non-league girls basketball triumph over Jefferson Wednesday night at L.W. Heckman Gymnasium.
The game was a makeup from a Jan. 25 postponement.
The Lady Green (11-8) used a 46-32 edge off the backboards (23-12 offensive) to help seal the deal. They were led by a pair of double-doublers: junior Lexie Wannemacher (20 markers, 15 boards) and all-around senior Taylor Mangas (13 counters, 15 rebounds, 6 steals, 3 assists).
The Lady Wildcats (9-11) had a trio in twin digits: senior Katie Goergens with 17 (4 treys), despite picking up her fourth foul at 4:46 of the second period, 12 by junior Brooke Culp (5 boards, 4 assists) and 10 from senior Rileigh Stockwell (9 caroms, 3 steals).
