The Lady Lancers began the game with outstanding defense and were able to pull ahead 15-4 at the end of the first quarter. The second quarter was much of the same as the swarming defense continued. Micah Tison, Presley Rowland, Carissa Johnson, and Amiley Williams controlled the glass and OCS was able to continue to push the basketball as OCS outscored Sacred Heart 18-5 to take a 33-9 lead into halftime.
The second half was much of the same as OCS continued to build its lead through solid defense and rebounding. By the end of the third quarter, OCS had amassed a 46-14 lead. The Lady Lancers were led in scoring by Claire Rau (17), Alaina Franey (14), Presley Rowland and Angelina Tringali (8), Micah Tison (6), and Amiley Williams and Kylie Yates with a point apiece. This was a great team win. All the ladies contributed to a nice victory with defense, steals, and rebounding on Friday evening.
With the win, the Lady Lancers are now 3-1 on the season. This week the Lady Lancers travel to Huron Valley on Thursday evening at 6:00 pm for a non-conference match-up.
