Warriors avenge earlier cage loss to South Range

By Carol McIntire


Carrollton senior Angela Starre (24) goes up for a shot over the outstreched arms of South Range Raider Danielle Vletich during a game last week at Carrollton.

CARROLLTON – The Lady Warriors won a revenge game against South Range on their home court last Wednesday.

The Warriors came up on the short end of a 54-51 score Dec. 4 at South Range. They allowed a nine point halftime lead to evaporate in the third quarter of the game at Carrollton, but a strong fourth quarter preserved a 56-42 victory.

Carrollton came out of the halftime break with a 23-14 lead. The two teams exchanged three-point shots – one by the Raiders’ Brie Modic and one by the Warriors’ Angela Starre early in the third period.

The Raiders had no trouble moving the ball down the court against a full court press by the Warriors and Bree Kohler dribbled into the lane and laid the ball into the hoop for an easy two points.

The Warriors responded when Starre scored from inside the lane. Carrollton stretched the lead to 10 when Kierra Gubesch took a pass from center Jaci Pridmore and laid it in.

A scoring frenzy by South Range cut into the Warrior lead.

Freshman Izzy Lamparty sank a three-point shot and was fouled, converting the foul shot. Kohler blocked a shot by Warrior Mikayla Poole, picked the ball up and dribbled to the other end of the court for an uncontested layup before Carrollton Coach Craig Rodgers called a timeout at the 3:46 mark of the quarter.

Coming out of the timeout, Starre sank a jumper to stretch the lead to six points.

Malvern senior Kelsi Hulit (green uniform) goes up for the first two points of the game against Conotton Valley last week. Hulit scored 33 points in the win. The Rockets’ Gabby Rice is defending.

If you took the points off the board Malvern girls basketball standout player Kelci Hulit scored in a game Saturday against the Conotton Valley Lady Rockets, the Rockets would have won the game. When you add Hulit’s 33 points to the 34 points her teammates scored, the Lady Hornets won by a convincing 77-37 score.

The Rockets had no answer for the Malvern senior, who scored every point for her team in the opening period.

The young Rockets, who started one senior and four sophomores, matched the Hornets in the opening period, trailing by just one point, 15-14 at the end of the quarter. Malvern pulled away in the second period, outscoring the Rockets 21-6 and took a 36-20 lead into halftime. They added 23 points in the third quarter and 18 in the final frame while the Lady Rockets mustered only 17 points in the final two periods.

Hulit connected on 11 of 22 attempts from the field, including three three-point shots. She sank eight of 11 free throws and grabbed 18 rebounds.

Jaz Marie Moore sank seven of 17 shots and was five-of-five from the foul line for 19 points. Jasmine Goldworthy chipped in seven points, Peyton Smith added six, Sarah Minor, 4; and Gabby Lawrence, Kendall Sarbach and Mackenzie Heidit, two each.

Sydney Lyon and Kelci Manbeck shared scoring honors for the Rockets with 11 points apiece. Emily Siedel added six, Micah Busby, five; and Gabby Rice, four.

The Warrior coaching staff and team react to Tavis Rutledge’s pin of Salem’s Kaleb Massersmith in the heavyweight match last week at Carrollton.

CARROLLTON -The Northeastern Buckeye Conference (NBC) wrestling champions began the quest to defend the title last week the same way they ended last season:on a winning note.

The champion Carrollton Warriors completely dominated the Salem Quakers in the CHS gym 76-6 last Thursday in the league opener. Carrollton won six weight classes and picked up points for six forfeits, while losing only one match.

The excitement in the gym built slowly throughout the evening as the Warriors picked up pin after pin and culminated in the heavyweight class during the rematch of Carrollton senior Tavis Rutledge and Keleb Massersmith of Salem. The two were involved in a controversial match last season that ended when Massersmith won by default after Rutledge was injured and unable to continue the match.
