Wednesday, December 13, 2006

South Putnam High School's varsity girls' basketball team dropped its fourth game in a row Tuesday at home, falling to Owen Valley, 80-53, despite three SPHS players scoring in double figures.

Bailey Birt and C.J. Searles each scored 14 points for South Putnam and Meghan Canary added 13, but the Eagles just didn't have an answer for Sam Stahl of Owen Valley. Stahl scorched the Eagles for 25 points, connecting on 10 field goals and shooting 4-of-5 at the free throw line.

Heather Gonser also had a big night for Owen Valley, dropping in 20 points on 10 field goals.

Owen Valley pulled away in the second, outscoring the Eagles 34-17 in the quarter behind 12 points from Stahl and went into the halftime break leading 51-29.

Searles scored eight points in the fourth quarter, which saw South Putnam outscore Owen Valley 11-10, but it was too late, and the Patriots pulled away.

SPHS's junior varsity squad fell to the Patriots, 48-8.

The Eagles (3-6) will take the court again Friday when they travel to Speedway to face the Sparkplugs at 6 p.m.

Cougars improve to 2-7

CAYUGA - The North Putnam Cougars girls' basketball team improved to 2-7 on the season with a win against North Vermillion, 64-36, Tuesday night.

Brooke Miller helped lead the way for the Cougars with 16 points and 10 assists. Carlye McGaughey, who led North Putnam, scored a team-high 17 points.

Ashley Pietras pulled down eight boards while scoring eight points in the game. Shawna Johnston and Taylor Alles helped the Cougars by scoring seven and six points respectively.

Another huge reason for North Putnam's victory was the difference in steals and turnovers. The Cougars stole the ball 25 times as opposed to the Falcons' five. Usually a killer for the Cougars, turnovers helped ground the Falcons' as they committed 30 turnovers against North's 15.

Defense came up big for the Cougars also as they allowed North Vermillion a skimpy 12 points in the second half. They also help the Falcons to shooting 26.8 percent from the floor and 33 percent from the line.

North Vermillion was led by Hillary Lively with a game-high 20 points and 14 rebounds. Kelly Yoho was a distant second in scoring with eight points.

Results from the junior varsity game were not available at press time.
