Lady Bulldogs victimized by early Gopher spurt    

Ada travels to Crestview on Thursday

By Cort Reynolds
ADA - Visiting Ridgemont raced to an 11-0 lead and went on to post a 60-36 win over Hardin County rival Ada in non-league girls basketball action on a rare Monday night game.

The Bulldog girls dropped to 5-11 after the defeat, while the Lady Gophers improved to 5-9 with the surprisingly lopsided victory.

"It was super disappointing; we came out super flat," admitted Ada second-year head coach Morgan Bass. "We talked about effort and attitude, two things we can control, at halftime.

"The second half was better but there is no excuse for the start," she continued. "It's frustrating."

Marietta stops ONU men

The Polar Bears (6-9 overall, 2-6 Ohio Athletic Conference) were just 20-of-70 from the floor for 28.6 percent, which included a 10-of-37 effort (27.0) from beyond the 3-point arc.

Junior Thomas Phillips ((Kenton) led three ONU players in double figures in scoring with 15 points, tying his career-high with five made 3-pointers. Freshman C.J. Napier (Miamisburg/Bishop Fenwick) added 13 points and sophomore Brandon Waugh (Columbus/Northland) had 11 points.
