OG hands Tinora first loss

JEWELL, OH – Ottawa Glandorf found themselves ahead 17-6 after the first quarter and cruised to a 58-43 win Tuesday night at Tinora behind balanced scoring from 10 players.

Nine first quarter turnovers by the Rams (2-1) led to the visitors jumping out to a quick 8-2 lead behind a pair of baskets from junior guard Erin Kaufman and one by Kadie Hempfling.

Turnovers continued to plague the Tinora offense in the second quarter as OG’s depth began to show behind Carri Johnson and Kasey Ellerbrock who would each connect on a three pointer to help push their teams lead to 29-12 at the halftime break.

In the third quarter Titan mentor Troy Yant continued to get balanced scoring from his young squad as six players tossed in points, including Mackenzie Meyer and freshman guard Kelsey Erford who both hit from deep before Kadie Hempfling added one of her own from beyond the arc to push the visiting teams lead to 44-23 heading into the final period of play.

With the score mostly in hand the Titans began to work in their younger players for good and found themselves outscored 20-14. The Tinora duo of Aaliyah Hurtt and Taylor Brown combined to score 9 of the 20 in the stanza and also combined to set up Sarah Harris for her second triple of the contest to pull the final margin to 15 in the loss.

Offensively the Rams were held to just three field goals made in the first half but doubled that output from the free throw line as they converted on 6 of 13 first half charity tosses. For the game Tinora connected on 13/23 foul shots.

Ottawa Glandorf improves to 2-0 on the season with the win and will be home on Saturday afternoon when they welcome the Kalida Wildcats (1-1) to Robert J. Hermiller Gymnasium for a 1:30pm varsity tilt that can be heard on WZOQ Radio

Tinora was led in scoring by Taylor Brown’s 9 points while the Titan offense was paced by Erin Kaufman and a career high 9 points from Paige Sutter.
