RACINE, OH (WOUB) – The Eastern Lady Eagles (1-20) took a trip to the (5-16) Southern Tornadoes this Thursday. The Eagles are having a slower season, with only winning one game. The final score tonight was a blow out that ended with Southern scoring a strong 54, while Eastern fell behind only putting up 27 points.            

 

The first quarter started off back and forth with both teams putting up points. The referees were not missing a call, leading to a handful of points received from the free throw line. Southern ladies were anticipating passes, leading to turnovers for Eastern. The tornadoes were on point, making their shots as a team.  

 

As we turned to the second half, things got rough for The Lady Eagles. The Eagles started off with high energy in the first half but began slowing down and giving less effort on the defensive end. In the third quarter, Jaylynn Hupp scored 7 points for the Tornadoes, but McKenzie Robertson gave it right back by finding a bright spot and taking advantage of the glass; earning 8 points for the Eagles.  

 

Southern ladies racked up a total of 21 points specifically off of 3 pointers. Jaylynn Hupp had 14 out of the 54 points for the tornadoes. Tonight was the Southern ladies senior night which ultimately amped up the game. Hope Reed had 10 points tonight with help from McKenzie Robertson, scoring 9 points. As McKenzie got more confident she began shooting from behind the 3 point line, making 2 back to back 3’s for the Eagles. Unfortunately with a little bit of scrappy defense and getting out rebounded, the Lady Eagles fell 54-27 to the Southern Girls.  

 

The Tornadoes were scoring as a team with lead scorers being Jaylynn Hupp (14), Kianna Rose (9), Michelle Adkins (8), and Kiersten Rose (8). The Eastern girls will take on the East Tartans at home this Monday, while the Southern ladies will take on Valley at their home court on Thursday.
