Girls Varsity Basketball

Girls Start Tournament with Win

By: Todd Enders

The Wynford Lady Royals started sectional play with a victory over the Western Reserve Roughriders, 51-39. The first quarter found each team dealing with some early tournament play jitters and getting the feel of each others style of play. Ending the first quarter in a 10-10 tie. The Royals had a strong second quarter led by Mallory Moore as she hit three straight 3-point field goals giving the Royals a 21-14 lead. The strong outside shooting and an aggressive full court press gave the Royals a 30-16 halftime lead.
Western Reserve continued to hang around during the second half not allowing Wynford to increase their lead and continue with the momentum from the first half. The Roughriders cut the Royals lead to within eight with 3:00 left in the fourth quarter, but Wynford held on to advanced to the next round of sectional play.  The Royals were lead by Alyssa Harrer's, 15, and Sarah Ogden's and Mallory Moore's, 12. Western Reserve was led by Brooke Buckannon's 14.
Wynford improves to 14-7 on the year and returns to Shelby High School on Saturday night to take on Ashland Crestview at 6:15 p.m.
