The Waterford Lady Wildcats dominated the Belpre Lady Eagles on their senior night, taking the win by a score of 58-21.

Both teams started off slowly, as Waterford only led 8-1 after the first quarter.

But Ali Kern and Megan Ball turned up the gas in the second as they helped the Lady Wildcats outscore Belpre 27-7.

Turnovers were a huge part of this surge by Waterford. The Lady Eagles turned the ball over 17 times in the game, 11 of which came in the first half.

In the second half things didn’t get much better for Belpre. Waterford continued command the flow of the game in the second half as they only allowed double digits in one quarter, that being the third.

The loss dropped the Lady Eagles to (11-7) on the season but coach Chris Murray still holds an optimistic outlook on the rest of the season.

“What I see is everyday there’s something we have to improve on,’” Murray said. “And you got to find little victories in the season.”

Waterford was led by Ali Kern and Megan Ball. Kern had 12 points and 6 rebounds and Ball chipped in with 10 and 6 rebounds.

The Lady Eagles were led by Kyna Waderker who only had 7 points but she more than made up for it as she led all players with 7 rebounds.

Waterford improved their record to (16-1) and tightened their claspe on the top spot in the TVC-Hocking. Their next game is Saturday at home against Fort Frye.

Next on the schedule for Belpre they will return home to face Paint Valley on Saturday.
