Perrysburg 44, Holland Springfield 18

For the Springfield Lady Blue Devils it has been a long and frustrating season. The effort has been there and the players have maintained a good attitude but, as Springfield coach Michael Hampton was lamenting before the game began, the shooting has not been. As a result, the Blue Devils dropped still another game last night against league rival Perrysburg, 44-18.



For the Springfield Lady Blue Devils it has been a long and frustrating season.

The effort has been there and the players have maintained a good attitude but, as Springfield coach Michael Hampton was lamenting before the game began, the shooting has not been. As a result, the Blue Devils dropped still another game last night against league rival Perrysburg, 44-18.

As predicted by coach Hampton, the cause of the Blue Devil loss was their inability to put the ball in the basket. When you shoot 20 percent from the floor (8-for-40) you cannot expect to win too many games and when you play a quality team like Perrysburg such shooting more often than not will lead to a rout and predictably it did.

The Yellow Jackets started slowly in the first quarter because they demonstrated some poor shooting of their own but in the second quarter the Jackets got their offense going and, by halftime, the rout was on. Perrysburg outscored Springfield 13-3 in the second quarter and took a 20-7 lead into the mid-game break.

In the third quarter the first half trend continued as the Yellow Jackets continued their offensive success while the Blue Devils continued their struggles. Perrysburg’s only senior, Nicole Parrish, after a quiet first half, began to find her scoring touch inside and scored eight of her game leading 13 points in the third quarter. By quarter’s end the Jacket lead had expanded to 24 points, 38-14, and the only question remaining was the final score.

In winning their 15th game of the year (15-3) the Yellow Jackets demonstrated balanced scoring as they had eight different players put points on the board. Only one other player, Demi Moschetti, with 10 points joined Parrish in double figures.

Perrysburg’s win keeps them tied with Anthony Wayne for the league lead at 12-1. Springfield falls to 9-10 overall and 5-8 in the league.
