Article: Bellbrook 58 Clinton Massie 47
In spite of the loss through graduation of standouts Leisha Crawford (now playing at Clarion) and Shelby Sigman (now playing at Capital), the Bellbrook Lady Golden Eagles don’t appear to be resting on the laurels of their Final Four appearance last season.
The Eagles put together a complete game against a strong Clinton Massie team tonight, posting a 58-47 victory on their home court. Leading scorers for Bellbrook were G Etter with 17, including 6 fourth quarter free throws to help seal the win, and Erin Dorn with 16. Strong inside play by Chea Taylor, Emily Smith, and Kelly Neumann helped to lessen the impact of Massie’s standout Sydney Brackemyre, who scored 17 but never seemed to hit her stride. In spite of that, Brackemyre showed that she is a force to be reckoned with in Ohio basketball, with at least 4 clean blocks and strong play inside. She left the game with 2 minutes left with an apparent injury or illness.
Massie’s leading scorer was Kasey Uetrecht with 18 hard-earned points, mostly midrange jumpers and several putbacks. One key to the Bellbrook victory was shutting down Mary Moyer, who did not score and fouled out with 3 minutes left in the game.
