NELSONVILLE, Ohio (WOUB) — The #14 seeded Nelsonville-York Lady Buckeyes faced off against the #19 seeded Northwest Lady Mohawks in the Sectional Semifinal matchup. It was an important afternoon for N.Y. senior Mackenzie Hurd, who scored her 1,000th point after an early first quarter three.

Nelsonville-York controlled the pace of play throughout the first half, as Hurd and sophomore Ariah Lavy helped each other out and attacked the Lady Mohawk defense. Hurd’s passing and Lavy’s ability to get to the hoop allowed the Lady Buckeyes to open up a 28-8 lead heading into the break.

Nelsonville-York rode their 20-point halftime lead throughout the second half, while also stopping Northwest from making a field goal from around 2:00 left in the first quarter until 5:48 left in the third. The Lady Buckeyes dominated the game overall and pulled out a 49-27 victory.

Ariah Lavy was the main contributor for Nelsonville-York, dropping 18 points. Mackenzie Hurd pitched in 12 points, seven rebounds, and seven assists, while gaining some well needed rest in the process.

After this lost, the Northwest Lady Mohawks will finish the season 10-9 overall. The Nelsonville-York Buckeyes will move on to face the #3 seeded Fairland Lady Dragons Wednesday night at Fairland.
