After an opening-season loss to Bellevue, the Port Clinton Redskins are beginning to hit their stride.

Behind Sydney Alexander's 15 points, Port Clinton cruised to a 63-39 victory over St. Mary Central Catholic.

The 'Skins led 15-9 after one quarter and pushed the advantage to 39-19 at halftime. With the win, Port Clinton is now 4-1 on the season.

Marissa Day and Emily Ashley helped to pace the attack with 13 points apiece for the 'Skins.

The second half was a little more competitive as Port Clinton won the final two quarters by just four points, 24-20.

Rathbun's 3-pointer at the buzzer wins it for the Rockets

After defeating Edison in close fashion last week, the Rockets did themselves one better this time around, beating Huron, 45-42, on a buzzer beater by sophomore center Maddy Rathbun.

Following a three-pointer by the Tigers' Audra Wisehart that tied the score at 42 with three seconds to play, Oak Harbor drew up a play that was designed to go to forward Andrea Cecil. The ball was inbounded to Rathbun, but the Huron defender came off her to double Cecil, leaving Rathbun open for the shot, which she made as time expired.

It was the culmination of a back-and-forth game, one that saw the Tigers rally after trailing until the 30-second mark of the third quarter.

The Rockets controlled things early, taking a 13-4 lead after the first quarter before heading into the half with a 21-14 advantage.

With Oak Harbor (3-2, 2-1 SBC) ahead 35-27, Huron went on an 11-0 run to take 38-35 lead early in the fourth quarter. 

After a basket by Emma Barney and a Tiger free throw gave Huron a 39-37 advantage, Cecil took over, scoring five straight points. She had a steal that led to a layup and a free throw to give the Rockets the lead, and two more free throws put her team ahead 42-39 with three minutes to play before Wisehart tied it up.

Oak Harbor's balanced scoring attack featured three players in double figures. Rathbun led the way with 13 points, followed by Barney (12) and Cecil (11).

The Rocket defense was key, allowing just six points in the final quarter after the Tigers had scored 22 in the third quarter.

Following two losses to open the season, the Danbury Lakers have rebounded to win their first two conference games to get headed in the right direction. 

Danbury's 42-28 win over Emmanuel Christian helped the team open the Toledo Area Athletic Conference slate with a win.

Megan Stephens played very well, scoring a game-high 17 points as the Lakers took an 11-5 lead after the first quarter. Holding a 21-15 lead at halftime, Danbury put the game away by outscoring the Warriors, 10-4, in the third quarter to take a 31-19 lead into the final period.

Alyx Perram and Kelly Lavelle finished with seven points apiece and Stephanie Kukay contributed with five.

EC got 11 points from McKenzie McCauley and seven from both Ceonna Simon and Cassidy Daniels.
