Lady Mustangs fall to Roy-Hart

Medina Journal-Register — MEDINA — The Lady Mustangs are still looking for their first victory of the season, but they came close on Friday night.

Medina closed within two points in the fourth quarter, but Roy-Hart’s veterans made a few more big plays down the stretch, and the Lady Rams came away with a 43-37 victory in a Niagara-Orleans League rivalry contest.

Roy-Hart improves to 1-2 in league play, 2-4 overall. The Lady Mustangs falls to 0-2 in the league, 0-5 overall.

“It was a defensive struggle,” Roy-Hart coach Don Baker said. “We stepped up in the fourth, but the Medina girls played hard, and they were well-coached.”

With Roy-Hart leading by just two points in the latter stages of the fourth quarter, senior Becky Harnish scored back-to-back buckets, with junior Taylor Fry adding two free throws to give the Lady Rams some breathing room.

Harnish finished with 16 points, while Fry added eight. Medina was led by senior Taylor Miller, who scored 10 points, while junior Nicole Blount had nine and freshman Molley Gross added six.

Roy-Hart took a 17-12 lead at halftime, and maintained a 26-22 advantage after the third quarter. Things opened up a bit in the final eight minutes, with the two teams combining for 32 points — after only 48 were scored in the first three quarters combined.

Barker 36, Akron 30

BARKER — Julia Atwater led the Lady Raiders with 17 points, as Barker came out on top in a defensive struggle of a Niagara-Orleans League contest on Friday night.

Caitlyn Mason added seven points for the Barker squad, which trailed 10-9 at halftime but made enough big plays down the stretch to earn the league win.

“Julia had a really solid game offensively,” Barker head coach Jeff Costello said. “Our guards did a nice job of getting her the ball, and she shot the ball well. She was able to get some points in the paint.”
