SCOTT DEPOT, W.Va. — The Ohio Valley Christian girls basketball dropped its third consecutive decision of the season Friday night following a 34-22 setback to host Teays Valley Christian in a non-conference contest in Putnam County.

The Lady Defenders (3-6) trailed 9-4 after one period of play, but the guests rallied with a 9-5 surge in the second canto to enter the intermission trailing 14-13.

The Lady Lions followed with a 10-4 charge in the third to secure a 24-17 advantage, then closed regulation with a 10-5 run to wrap up the 12-point triumph.

OVCS — which had only five healthy players for the game — went just 4-of-15 at the free throw line for 27 percent. TVCS, on the other hand, sank 10-of-17 charity tosses for 59 percent.

Emily Carman led the Lady Defenders with 10 points, followed by Bekah Sargent with six points and Sarah Schoonover with four markers. Cassandra Hutchinson rounded out the OVCS scoring with two points.

Gabby Harrah paced the Lady Lions with 10 points, followed by Rachel Kiser with nine points and Grace Kesler with six markers. Lindsay Fowler and Alisha Kiser rounded out the winning tally with five and four points, respectively.
