Lady Tigers scratch Blue Lions

The McClain High School girls team pulled out a road win Saturday against the Washington Lady Blue Lions with a final score of 31-28, taking them to a 2-4 overall record (2-2 SCOL).

Washington battled from behind and had pulled to within three points on a three-point field goal by freshman Shawna Conger with 17 seconds remaining to be played.

McClain went to the free throw line and, struggling from the line the entire night, missed two free throws with 15 seconds to play.

Washington came down court, but McClain’s defense did not allow a clear look at the basket and the Lady Tigers held on for the win.

There was only one player reaching double figures and that was McClain senior Malea Montavon with 10 points. She connected on two of her team’s three three-point field goals.

Senior Lexie Barton had five points and a trio of players, senior Beth Montgomery and sophomores Maddy Stegbauer and Makenzie Montavon, each scored four points.

The Lady Lions hit 6 of 16 free throws for 38 percent.

McClain led Washington 12-10 at the end of the first quarter. The Lady Tigers outscored the Lady Lions 7-1 in the second period.

Washington won the second half at 17-12, but went eight points down at the start of the third quarter.

“We had Haithcock doubled a lot when she caught the ball and they couldn’t get in the flow of their offense,” said McClain coach Jarrod Haines. “Fortunately for us, they didn’t really hit anything from the outside until the fourth quarter. That’s when Washington hit both of its three-point goals. If we shoot free throws a little better, then it’s a different ball game. A win is a win and we’ll take it.”

McClain is home against East Clinton Wednesday at 5:30 p.m. The Lady Tigers will host Miami Trace Saturday, with the j-v game at 5:30 p.m.
