Titans win 9th straight

OTTAWA, OH – Ottawa Glandorf jumped out to a 17 point first quarter lead and never looked back Thursday night as they dispatched Shawnee 70-45 to move to 6-0 in Western Buckeye League action.

Led by a season high 17 points from junior Erin Kaufman the Titans offense was rolling early as they blitzed out to a 21-4 first quarter advantage.

With scores by seven different players and three pointers from three of those the OG offense was clicking early, but it was the defense that was most impressive for the home team. For their part Shawnee was forced to play loose with the basketball as they accounted for 13 first half turnovers.

Scoring wise the second period was much better for the visiting Indians as they accounted for 16 markers, but still found themselves down 17 at the break 37-20. Nearly all of Shawnee’s scoring in the stanza came from the duo of All-WBL pick Alissa Stahler and Eliyana Floyd who combined for 11 of their 21 game markers.

As they have done for most of the season the Titans got solid contributions from their bench in the contest led by Kasey Ellerbrock who hit on a trio of three pointers in the game and finished with a career high 11, 8 of those coming in the first 16 minutes.

In the second half the OG offense continued to get points on steals and quick rebounds turned into run outs, a staple of Ottawa Glandorf’s game and outscored their opponents 33-25 to secure their 6th victory in as many tries in the Western Buckeye League.

Kadie Hempfling helped to push the pace for her squad in the second half as she added a pair of dazzling layups and a three pointer in the third quarter for seven of her 15 points. Along with the scoring the future Falcon handed out five assists and nabbed five rebounds in the game for the third ranked Titans.

Ottawa Glandorf (15-1, 6-0) will travel to Lima on Saturday afternoon for a date with the Lima Senior Spartans in a game that can be heard live on WZOQ Radio at 1:30pm.

Shawnee (8-8, 2-4) was led in scoring by Stahler who ended the game with 15. The Indians will next play host to Coldwater on Tuesday night in non-conference action.

Titans cruise past Indians

Ottawa Glandorf built a big lead on a 22-4 second quarter run at Shawnee Thursday and used it to defeat the Indians 60-33.

Despite a 15-11 first quarter score, the Shawnee Indians struggled in the first half as they had 15 shots to go along with 15 turnovers in the half.

Shooting was not a problem for OG in the second period as they were able to turn defensive takeaways into points quickly on the offensive end. Freshman Kadie Hempfling proved to be one of the Titans biggest threats on both ends of the floor as she accounted for all 11 of her points off the bench in the first half to help her squad to a 37-15 advantage at the halftime break.

Rachel Evans got it going for the home team in the third quarter as she drilled a trio of shots behind the line to close the gap for the Indians momentarily to just 16 before the Titans were able to push the lead to 51-29 at the end of three behind 14 quarter points from Erin Basinger, Danielle Schroeder, and Kylie White.

Of the ten players to score for OG on the night, none got the visiting crowd out of their seat more than Kenzie Meyer’s jumper from the corner, her ensuing layup or a bucket by fellow frosh Carri Johnson. The buckets by the aforementioned young ladies were the first (and in Meyer’s case second as well) of their young varsity careers. Kianna Siefker would go 1/2 from the line in the final period to add one of the last points to the 60-33 victory.

Shawnee would only be able to muster 4 points again in the last 8:00 as Ashley Medsker and Tess Baird accounted for buckets for the Indians (4-8, 1-3 WBL) who are off until Tuesday when they travel to take on Fort Jennings in a non-conference tilt. Ottawa Glandorf was led in scoring by Hempfling with 11 and will have to wait just two days before they play next, a Saturday afternoon non-conference matchup at home against Bowling Green that can be heard live on www.zsportslive.com at approximately 2:15pm.
