|Unioto completes regular season at 20-0
In non-conference action Saturday night at the beautiful, under-used facility at OU-C, the Piketon
Redstreaks used a big second-quarter to bust things open as they rolled to a 70-38 win over Vinton
County. The Vikings were able to keep the tempo slow in the first period as Piketon led only 9-5 after the
first quarter; however, quarter two was all Redstreaks as they outscored Vinton County 18-3 to take
control for good.
The key to run was the offensive glass. Piketon scored over half of its first half points off of
second-chance opportunities. With the the fast start, Piketon forced VC to play faster, and at that point,
Piketon took the game over in every aspect.
The Redstreaks were led by Cody Smith with 19 points and Jordan Brabson added 18 points. Point
guard Evan Legg chipped in with 11 points while Caleb Southworth finished with seven points, nine
boards, and four blocks.
The win improves Piketon to 16-2 overall. They have a game at Unioto next Friday that will secure a
share of the SVC title. If Westfall loses at Huntington Tuesday or at Adena Friday, Piketon would be able
to win it for themselves with a win over the Shermans. Piketon will also play Saturday night (Senior Night)
when the Redstreaks welcome New Boston.
For VC (14-3 overall, 9-0 in the TVC), who played Saturday evening without four-year starter in 6-4
senior Jake Prater, they return to action Tuesday night at Nelsonville. The Vikings need two wins out of
their last three games to win their third straight outright league title.
|PV's upset bid falls short in OT at LC
The eight-win Lady Cats had a 17-win Lynchburg Clay
team in serious trouble Saturday. Paint Valley was up by
three points with the clock ticking down when Lynchburg
star Kelsey Lewis nailed a triple to send the game into OT.
Lewis and LC outscored PV 9-2 in the extra period to
secure a 48-41 win. Lewis scored 14 points - all after
For the Bearcats, Erica Barker scored 14 points. Tristan
Rumfield scored 11 points and grabbed 14 rebounds.
Sophomore Dacia Posey continued her solid play with nine

Congrats to Unioto on a perfect 20-0
season. Taylor Corcoran's 13 points led
