Lady Redskins stop Clyde's 65-game SBC winning streak

In the last four years, John Cahill has helped established Clyde as one of the premiere programs in the state. During that time, the Fliers advanced to the Division II State Semifinals and have dominated the Sandusky Bay Conference, winning four straight league titles while winning 65 consecutive games in the conference.

That streak, which was two short of the record of 67 held by Huron, lasted until Saturday when Port Clinton defeated Clyde, 68-54, to notch its 13th consecutive win.

The Redskins, led by Hannah Weaver and Bethany Urban, trailed 23-16 late in the first quarter before going on a 19-7 run to take a 35-30 lead into the half. Port Clinton wouldn't trail after taking the lead in the second quarter. Weaver, who had a game-high 20 points, scored 16 of the Redskins' 33 second-half points and finished with six rebounds, and Urban finished with 18 points and five rebounds. Sydney Alexander also finished in double figures, scoring 10 points and pulling down six rebounds.
