FRANKFORT - Unioto forced
14 first-half Adena turnovers to
build a 26-18 halftime advantage.
Adena did start the third quarter
well; however, another Unioto
spurt pushed the lead back to
double-digits and Unioto rolled
from there to a 48-36 road win.
Unioto's Mackenzie Arledge and
Shiann Ray combined for 32
points in the win. Adena did do a
nice job on Ray for most of night
holding her to just 7-of-21
shooting; however, Unioto's
overall guard play combined with
Arledge's solid performance in the
post proved to be too much for
the two-shade blue.
The win improves Unioto to 2-0
overall as they prepare to travel
to Vinton County on Saturday.
Unofficially for Adena, Megan
Davidson scored a team-high 15
points while Kelsey Bielanow
scored eight points and grabbed
eight boards. The loss drops the
Lady Warriors to 0-2 overall on
the young season. Adena will host
Leesburg on Saturday.
