OTTOVILLE - A scrappy but outmanned and outsized Lincolnview team made it interesting for 16 minutes, but it was all Ottoville in the second half as the Lady Green romped 70-32 Saturday afternoon. Ottoville is now 3-0; the Lady Lancers are 2-1.
The visitors actually led early, 8-7, on a 12-foot baseliner by Kaylee Thatcher, but Ottoville scored the next ten points on layups by Rachel Beining, Abby Siefker, Taylor Mangas, Nicole Vorst, and Rachel Turnwald. It was 20-11 at the end of one.
The second quarter was Lincolnview's best, as the Lancers stayed within striking distance, barely, at 36-24 after 16 minutes of play. Both teams shot well in the first half -- Ottoville hitting 15 of 26 from the field, Lincolnview 10 of 20, with seven of the Lancers' baskets coming from mid-range. Both teams were 4 of 7 from the stripe, but the inside tandem of 6'0 Beining and 6'2 Siefker had led the Green to a 9-2 margin on the boards. Ottoville had eight turnovers at that point, Lincolnview 11.
