Minford 51, Eastern 38

BEAVER — Two late-game runs were the differencemakers in the Minford Lady Falcons’ 51-38 Southern Ohio Conference Division II road win over Eastern on Monday.

After being tied 23-all at halftime and trailing 29-25 after back-to-back Abby Cochenour threes, the Lady Falcons used a 12-0 scoring run to take a 37-31 lead going into the fourth quarter.

Eastern cut Minford’s lead to as low as 37-33, but was unable to hold off another run — as the Lady Falcons closed on a 14-7 stretch in the fourth.

Senior Livi Shonkwiler paced Minford during the second half, scoring 18 of her game-high 25 in the final two periods.

Sydney Mougey knocked down Minford’s only two three-point makes, each in the second half.

Mougey’s 10 first-half points were second only to Cochenour, who had 16 at the break.

Minford is scheduled to travel to Oak Hill on Monday (Nov. 30) for its second game and SOC II contest of the young season.

South Webster 49, Valley 36

LUCASVILLE — In both teams’ Southern Ohio Conference Division II opener, the South Webster Lady Jeeps bested host Valley 49-36 in Lucasville.

The win — in Lady Indians head coach Tyson Phillips’ debut — was a bounce-back of sorts for the Lady Jeeps, which fell in their season opener just two days prior to Notre Dame.

After trailing 14-8 following the first quarter, South Webster proceeded to outscore Valley 41-22 in the final three frames — to even its record at 1-1.

Lady Jeeps junior guard Bri Claxon scored a game-high 22 points on seven made field goals and a 7-for-11 mark from the foul line.

Fellow junior Faith Maloney was key down the stretch, making each of her six free-throw attempts in the fourth quarter.

Maloney and freshman Bella Claxon each scored 13 points for the Lady Jeeps.

McKenna Dunham led the Lady Indians with a team-high 11 points on four made field goals.

Haley Whitt scored 10 on four field goals, while Madison Montgomery had eight — six coming in the first quarter.

Valley, now 0-1, was scheduled to play Paint Valley on Saturday in its season opener, but that contest was postponed.

The Lady Indians will travel to face defending league champion Wheelersburg on Monday (Nov. 30) in their second game of the 2020-21 season.

South Webster is back in action on Monday (Nov. 30) — in its home league opener versus Waverly.
