ROOTSTOWN 55, SOUTHEAST 30
The Rovers simply were not interested in sharing.
Playing for the opportunity for the outright Portage Trail Conference title and undefeated league record, Rootstown dominated the host Pirates for the 25-point victory in Palmyra on Wednesday night.
A win for the Pirates would have clinched a share of the PTC crown with the Rovers.
In what has become a recurring theme for the Rovers this season, the team’s victory was spotlighted by a balanced offense that included nine different scorers.
Nadia Lough led the Rovers (15-5, 7-0 PTC) with nine points and nine rebounds, while Sasha Nichols, Porter Smith and Abby White all added eight points each.
Emmi Smallfield was Southeast’s leading scorer with seven points. The loss dropped the Pirates’ overall record to 15-7 and 6-2 in the PTC.
MOGADORE 59, ST. THOMAS AQUINAS 34
Brook McIntyre scored 25 points and the host Wildcats rolled to a Portage Trail Conference victory over the visiting Knights.
Amelia Morris added 12 points, while McKenna Whitehead scored 10 points for the Wildcats (11-9, 4-2).
Mogadore’s leading rebounders were Jocelyn Lawrentz and Olivia Kidd, who both had six each.
St. Thomas Aquinas’ leading scorer was K’Lynn Carter with 17 points.
