Lady Patriots Drop Conference Match-Up To Visiting Mustangs
Led by a season-high 19 points from 5’10” sophomore forward Vanessa Brown, the Lady Mustangs were never really threatened, with OV struggling to find ways to score in each of the four quarters.
Megan Eldridge managed three points in the opening quarter, while OV guards Alicia Wilson and Hannah Corder scored two each.
Kelsea Hamm and Sarah Jones each netted a basket for the Lady Patriots in the second frame, while Wilson connected on one of two attempts from the free throw line. OV’s five points in the second quarter did little to slow the Lady Mustangs, who broke for the half comfortably in front, 41-12.
Along with the squad’s shooting woes, OV committed 20 turnovers in the opening 16 minutes and were out-rebounded by the Lady Mustangs, 17-4.
Second half action was more of the same for OV, with Hamm scoring all five of the team’s third quarter points.
The Lady Patriots shot just 23 percent from the field and finished with a game-high 27 turnovers.
Sophomore forward Vanessa Brown paced the Lady Mustangs with 19 points, followed by senior forward Angela Hacker with 17, senior guard Hannah Rommel with 11, sophomore Ashley Hacker six, senior Amanda Gilliland six, sophomore guard Karly Thornton five and senior forward Kelsey Weddle three.
Ashley Hacker, Gilliland and Weddle each grabbed eight rebounds. The Lady Mustangs dominated the boards, 44-12.
