Rockets rout Lakota, 73-50

Oak Harbor wasted little time in establishing control in its 73-50 victory over Lakota.

The Rockets led 21-7 after the first quarter and, holding a 36-27 lead at halftime, put the game away by outscoring the Raiders, 19-9, in the third quarter to take a 55-36 advantage into the fourth.

Kalob Vargas led the way for Oak Harbor (3-14), scoring a game-high 19 points. Deshawn Johnson finished with 13 and Isiah Jefferson had 11.

The Rockets were able to get a number of good shots with 26 of their 28 field goals coming inside the three-point line. They shot just 15-of-29 (51.7%) from the free-throw line, but Lakota (1-16) wasn't much better, connecting on 17-of-26 (65.4%) shots from the charity stripe.


Oak Harbor outlasts Port Clinton, 46-31

Emily Ashley goes for two against the Rockets.

Behind a game-high 19 points from Andrea Cecil, Oak Harbor jumped out to an early lead and slowly took control on their way to a 46-31 victory over Port Clinton.

The Rockets outscored the Redskins, 13-7, in the first quarter and Abby Dornbusch's driving layup on the first play of the second quarter put Oak Harbor ahead by eight. Port Clinton would get within eight points just twice during the rest of the game. 

After Emily Ashley connected on a free throw to make it a 23-16 game late in the first half, Cecil took over, scoring the final six points of the quarter to give the Rockets a 29-16 lead going into the break. She connected on a free throw, hit a three-pointer from the left wing with 55 seconds remaining and, after a back-and-forth sequence that saw both teams turn the ball over, Cecil converted on a mid-range jumper with 21 seconds left.
