Herrington netted eight of those points in the second quarter as OV extended a 13-2 advantage to a 34-12 lead at the half.

“I thought our defense played really well,” said second-year OV coach Todd York, “plus we were able to get back on track offensively.”

Cloverdale head coach Matthew Langdon said aggressiveness on both ends of the floor was the difference-maker for Owen Valley.

“All the credit goes to Owen Valley and their girls’ effort tonight,” Langdon said. “They were the aggressive team tonight and we did not match that aggressiveness. Our girls are beginning to make the right reads and see the open people but are still unable to execute and finish the play. We get three days of practice before the county championship. We hope to have a good week of practice and see improvement against Greencastle on Friday.”
