HHS falls 68-48


So much for the Wilmington High School girls basketball team dealing with a hangover from the upset win of Clinton-Massie Saturday night.

The Lady Hurricane forced 33 Hillsboro turnovers Wednesday night and used a 17-0 run in the first half to post a 68-48 win in South Central Ohio League play at the HHS gym.

Mya Jackson led the WHS offense with 17 points, despite not having a good shooting night.

Faith Sanderson added 14 points, but more importantly handed out 6 assists and came up with 4 steals. In the final period alone, Sanderson had 3 steals and 4 assists.

Leah Frisco had 7 points but grabbed 9 rebounds — 7 of them offensive. Katlyn Jamiel had 11 points and 6 rebounds.

For Hillsboro, Madison Snyder led all scorers with 25 points on 9 of 20 shooting. She grabbed 7 rebounds.

Natalie Sullivan also reached double figures with 11 points for Hillsboro.

Suzannah Johns got things started for the Lady Hurricane in the opening period, recording 4 steals as a whirling dervish on defense. That set the tone as Hillsboro had 10 turnovers in the 1st quarter.

It was a tight game early as the Lady Indians had a straight shooting eye. WHS led 16-12 late in the quarter when Jamiel drained a 3-pointer. Jackson hit a floater in the waning seconds of the 1st and the Lady ’Cane led 21-12.

Both teams struggled in the 2nd quarter but Wilmington found its stride late, finishing the first half on a 7-0 run and a 35-18 lead.

That scoring spree was extended to 17-0 in the 3rd quarter before Hillsboro’s Snyder stopped the run with an old-fashioned 3-point play. By then, it was all Wilmington, 45-21.

As the 4th quarter unfolded Snyder found the mark, scoring 10 points in the final stanza. The Lady Indians crept to within 61-48 before the Lady Hurricane scored the final 7 points of the game.
