On a night when senior Tiffany Colston reached the 1,000-point milestone, it was defense that propelled Port Clinton to a 41-21 victory over rival Oak Harbor last week.

The Redskins, who held the Rockets to single digits in each quarter, pushed their lead from 9-8 after one quarter to 19-10 at halftime. From there, Port Clinton, which is now 16-4 overall and 10-3 in the Sandusky Bay Conference, outscored Oak Harbor, 22-11, in the second half.

Colston led all scorers with 17 points and Hannah Weaver and Emily Ashley finished with nine points apiece. 

Andrea Cecil led the Rockets with 10 points and Maddy Rathbun chipped in with 10. 

Clyde 57, Port Clinton 42

After hanging with Clyde for one half, the Redskins fell behind in the second half as the Fliers pulled away in their 57-42 victory. 

Clyde, the fifth-ranked team in Division II, led 24-22 at halftime and began to pull away by outscoring Port Clinton, 18-9, in the third quarter to push the advantage to 42-31 heading into the fourth.

Kelsey Michaels had 21 points to lead the Fliers and Amanda Cahill finished with 12. Tiffany Colston led the ‘Skins with 13 points, Hope Thorban scored 10 and Emily Ashley finished with eight. 

Port Clinton hosts Edison on Thursday on Senior Night and begins tournament play when they play the winner of Bowling Green and Eastwood at 6:15 p.m. on Feb. 22 at Old Fort High School in the Division II Sectional Final. Should they win, the ‘Skins will play in the district semifinal on Feb. 27 at 8 p.m. at Perrysburg High School.
