A trifecta of treys in a 73-second stretch in the fourth quarter gave the Wapakoneta Redskins the lead and staked them to 7-point advantage they never relinquished in a battle Thursday against the Kenton Wildcats in their Western Buckeye League opener.
Redskin junior guard Nicole Brown hit back-to-back-to-back 3-pointers to give Wapakoneta a 50-49 lead at the 5:09 mark in the fourth quarter in a see-saw affair and then put the dagger in Kentonâ€™s comeback hopes with a second trey at the 4:36 mark and a third with 3:56 left in the quarter putting the Redskins up 56-49.
WAYNESFIELD â€” Waynesfield-Goshen junior Kaylee Patton needed 16 points Thursday night to eclipse the 1,000 point mark in her varsity girls basketball career.
And she needed less than two quarters to do it.
Patton passed the mark with a reverse layup with 1:37 left in the half, then went on to score a team-high 24 points to lead the Tigers to a 56-40 win over the Perry Commodores in the Northwest Central Conference opener for both teams.
â€śItâ€™s amazing,â€ť Kaylee Patton said. â€śMy teammates really help me out. They hit some outside shots and that let me get to the inside.â€ť
