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.

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.

Behind a combined 34 points from the Rumball brothers, Port Clinton defeated Woodmore, 70-59, to give Von Graffin his first victory as head coach of the Redskins.

Tytan Rumball led all scorers with 19 points and Carter chipped in with 15 to help Port Clinton rally from an early deficit to claim victory.

Down six points early in the second quarter, Port Clinton went on an 11-0 run and outscored the Wildcats, 19-13, in the period to take a 31-28 lead at the half.

The Redskins, who pushed the lead to 50-37 midway thru the third quarter, led 52-46 heading into the final period.

In all, four Port Clinton players finished with double figures. Ryan Alexander came off the bench to score 11 points and Stefan Daniels finished with 10.

Grant Weis led Woodmore with 17 points and Drew Lewandowski chipped in with 14.
