Titans outlast Jackets

PERRYSBURG, OH – Despite not putting a point on the scoreboard in the final quarter until there was 2:30 remaining the OG Titans outlasted host Perrysburg Tuesday night 48-41 in non-league action.

Ottawa Glandorf jumped out to a 16-9 first quarter advantage and found themselves in the lead 29-20 at the halftime break in large part due to their jump shooting. Behind a three pointer from Erin Kaufman and a pair of first period buckets from post player Paige Sutter the Titans found themselves on top 7-0 before a Whitney Thames free throw with 5:40 remaining in the first broke their goose egg on the scoreboard.

Junior guard Nadeen Jemaa helped pull the host Yellow Jackets back into the ballgame in the second quarter as she connected on a pair of quick shots from downtown, but Mackenzie Meyer answered with one of her own to push the OG lead to nine at the break.

Perrysburg senior and returning All-Ohio selection Ashlynn Brown who finished the contest with a game high 16 points on the night led the charge down low for the Yellow Jackets in the paint as she would go on to grab a trio of big rebounds and toss in nine of her markers in the second half.

Coming into the game 20 points away from becoming the fourth Titan to score 1,000 in her career Kadie Hempfling went into attack mode for her team in the third quarter as she hit on 3/4 from the free throw line and a three pointer from the right wing to push her team even further of their opponents. For the game the future BGSU Falcon scored 14 points.

In the fourth quarter with Ottawa Glandorf being outscored 7-0 it was Hempfling who nailed one of her fourth quarter charity tosses to give the Titans their first points of the stanza and push their lead to 43-39.

With just a minute left in the contest it was Carri Johnson who for the second straight game hit on a big fourth quarter shot to help keep her team with the advantage, as this time her shot provided the final seven point cushion OG needed to survive the Jackets late onslaught.

Perrysburg (7-2) has now dropped two straight and will take be on the road to battle Bowling Green on Friday in a Northern Lakes League contest before traveling to Toledo to take on Central Catholic on Saturday.

With their win Ottawa Glandorf moves to 10-1 on the season and will be home on Thursday night to take on Western Buckeye League foe Bath and will attempt to keep their 19 game home winning streak in tact.

Schroeder career night pushes OG past Perrysburg

PERRYSBURG – For the third consecutive game the Ottawa Glandorf Titans were paced in scoring by a career high from one of their players as they downed Perrysburg 41-27. Junior Lexi Schroeder eclipsed her career high of 12 points by dropping in 15 in the contest, including a pair of triples to help her team improve to 5-1 this season on away from their home court.

Both squads got off to a slow start in the first quarter and found themselves on the end of a lot of empty possessions. OG was unable to get a point on the scoreboard until the 3:41 mark of the stanza when Kylie White connected on a pair of free throws to cut the Yellowjackets lead to 4-2. Trailing 8-7 in the last few seconds of the opening period, Dani Ellerbrock’s runner as the horn sounded would give the Titans a 9-8 advantage heading to the second stanza that would never relinquish.

A back and forth second quarter was won again by OG with 9 points as they pushed their lead to 18-17 at the half led by five points in that span from Schroeder who also connected on one of her two three pointers for the evening.

Perrysburg not only found themselves held to one basket from the field in the third quarter, but with a couple of players in foul trouble as the Titan attack began to wear down the defense of their opponents and lead to opportunities for easier baskets than had come in the first half. Ottawa Glandorf was also held to not much from the field but did muster a pair of hoops in the games penultimate period despite turning over the basketball far too many times for head coach Troy Yant’s liking.

Heading into the final period OG found themselves with a 26-21 advantage and would attempt to hold that lead as they looked to down the Jackets for the second consecutive season.

A pair of three pointers from Schroeder and White helped push the Titan advantage out to nine points in the opening part of the quarter. Perrysburg’s duo of Taylin Hunter and Ashlyn Brown who had spent a good portion of the contest in foul trouble ultimately found themselves disqualified and forced to watch the rest of the contest from the bench with their fifth fouls. White, Schroeder and Ellerbrock scored all of the Titans 15 points and helped their squad finish off the home team by a 41-27 margin.

OG, now 10-1 on the season will head to Celina on Thursday night for a battle of 3-0 teams in the WBL as they take on the Bulldogs. Pregame for the contest begins at 7:15pm and can be heard live on WZOQ Radio.

Perrysburg sees their season record fall to 5-5 and will travel to take on Maumee on Friday night.

Titans sting Perrysburg late

Dani Ellerbrock’s 3 with under 50 seconds to go Tuesday night not only gave Ottawa Glandorf the lead, it put them ahead for good in their matchup with the visiting Perrysburg Yellowjackets. OG would add a pair of free throws from Elissa Ellerbrock with just seconds remaining and defeat Perrysburg 38-35 in a low scoring contest at the Supreme Court in Ottawa.

Both teams defenses would frustrate their opponents offense early as both struggled to get shots to drop from the field. Allex Brown, the top scorer for Perrysburg who is headed to play Division 1 college basketball at IUPUI in Indianapolis would only be able to muster 2 points (both free throws) in the first quarter while OG’s top scorer Elissa Ellerbrock (Gannon University in Erie, PA) would fail to score until late in the contest for her squad. OG would find themselves in the lead at the end of the first period 10-9 led by 5 points from Dani Ellerbrock.

Brown would get things going in the second quarter as she tossed in a pair of buckets as well as a three pointer that cut the Titans halftime lead to 22-17.

Perrysburg would outscore OG 7-4 in the 3rd quarter behind 4 points from Junior guard Taylin Hunter and find themselves trailing 26-22 heading into the final 8 minutes of the contest.

One of the most back and forth quarters of the season would take place between both squads last night as OG found themselves in control until the 6:02 mark of the quarter when the Yellowjackets would go on an 11-2 run and grab their first lead of the contest at 30-28 on a three pointer, the only one of the game from Senior Jen Witt. Ottawa Glandorf would respond however and tie it at the 2:35 mark of the quarter at 33 as Erin Basinger who finished with a fantastic game punctuated by a basket to give her points 14 and 15 on the night.

A basket by Brown would give Perrysburg the lead back with under one minute to go at 35-33, but the Titans would answer right back behind the only points of the second half from Dani Ellerbrock, a 3 with a hand in her face to put OG ahead for good at 36-35. Despite being held scoreless for the contest up to this point Elissa Ellerbrock would make her mark on the defensive end with another rebound off of a Jacket miss and be fouled. Ellerbrock would walk to the line and drain a pair of free throws to provide the final points of the 38-35 margin.

OG moves to 8-2 with the win and will play at home on Thursday night as the Celina Bulldogs (3-6) in WBL play while the Yellowjackets (5-4) will be off until Friday night before entertaining Anthony Wayne in NLL play.
