Nelsonville-York Lady Buckeyes Win Big Matchup, While N-Y Boys Struggle To Win One< < Back to
The N-Y Lady Buckeyes came into the week losers of two straight games with a possibility of falling way behind in the standings.
Then, Lady Buckeyes junior Mary Kate Mccullough started to make shots, with Jessie Addis continuing to score, and they both helped guide the Lady Buckeyes to a 2-0 week with a huge win against the Alexander Lady Spartans.
The Lady Buckeyes came into the January 4th matchup against Alexander with a three-game losing streak against the Alexander Spartans.
In this one, N-Y never trailed, holding onto the game in the final quarter, securing a big 57-53 win against the Lady Spartans.
Mary Kate Mccullough had a huge night for the Lady Buckeyes, netting a career high 29 points while adding 4 steals and going 6-10 from three.
Jessie Addis also added in 17 points to fend off a big night from Alexanders Rachel Richardson, who scored 30 points.
The Lady Buckeyes suffocating defense was on full display in their next matchup on Jan. 6th against the Federal Hocking Lady Lancers.
Without a high scoring game from Mccullough and foul trouble early on from Jessie Addis, the defense held the Lady Lancers to a collective 20 percent shooting from the floor, in the 47-31 victory.
The Lady Buckeyes are now (8-4) (4-1) and they will be at home in their next matchup on Jan. 11th against the Meigs Lady Marauders.
The N-Y Boys basketball team had a different week, as they struggled to a 1-2 record this past week.
The week started off rough on Jan. 3rd with a 55-34 loss to Eastern.
Leading the way for the Buckeyes was Justin Perry with 11 points. Nathan Bohyer only had 6 points and added 6 rebounds.
It was close in the first half, but a 22-9 advantage from the Eastern Eagles in the second half was too much for the Buckeyes to handle.
Their next game was a Jan. 5th matchup with the River Valley Raiders. N-Y couldn’t find a way to win this one, as they lost a close one 51-49.
A game against the Federal Hocking Lancers on Jan. 6 might have been exactly what the Buckeyes needed as they won big 53-38.
With good defense and a bounce back night from Bohyer, with 14 points, helped the Buckeyes end the week on a positive note.
The Buckeyes, now sitting at (5-5) (1-4), will look to have a bounce back week when they take on the Meigs Marauders on Jan. 12.
