The Federal Hocking Lady Lancers moved to 2-0 for the first time in five years Thursday night when they defeated the Southern Tornadoes 66-57.
The Lady Lancers struggled to break the Southern’s press early, as they only managed eight points in a sloppy first quarter. Fed Hock made up for it with strong defense as Southern could only manage six points in the opening quarter. Both teams seemed to settle down in the second quarter, and the game headed into halftime with the Lady Lancers leading 26-19.
Fed Hock pulled away in the third quarter behind Cheyenne Singer, who scored seven of her nine points in the third. Carley Tabler was able to repeatedly break the Tornadoes press on her way to scoring 15 points. Ashton Cale was also impressive for the Lady Lancers as she scored 11 points. Southern was led by Jansen Wolfe, who scored a team-high 12 points. Fed Hock led 47-31 at the end of the third quarter.
The two teams traded baskets in the fourth quarter but the Lady Tornadoes did not have a final rally up their sleeve.
Federal Hocking’s next game comes against South Galia on December 3.
