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.

Redskin bowlers split matches with Eastwood; girls set another record

Port Clinton hosted Eastwood at Star Lanes at the Harbor in Port Clinton Tuesday and the teams split matches.

The Lady Redskins, undefeated in 7 matches, and 5-0 in the Northern Ohio Bowling Conference, set another school record with a 5 game baker score of 969, breaking the old mark of 948.

The Lady ‘Skins totaled 2586 to the Eagles (3-3) 2382.

Alysia Zoeller led Port Clinton with games of 203-182. Jozlynn Seamon 202-134, Eryn Binder 164-162 and Sam Stroupe 146-165. Other team members are Reilly Wittman, Katelyn Chapman, Kassidy Mahler, Morgan Wojchiechowski and Jordan Gresh.

“Our girls keep making a good effort at improving as the season goes along,” said Coach Bob Black. “We continue to work on arm-swing, releases and especially focus on each shot. Team average is around 850 and each player has room for improvement. I think we’re ready for the conference tournament this weekend.”

Eastwood improved to 5-1 in conference play with a 2799-2497 win over the Redskins (0-7, 0-5).

Cameron Bice led the Redskins with 178-238 and Kordell Blankenship 205-205. Shelby Radloff a 180 and Alex Camerato a 148.

“The boys are improving. This was their highest total of the season, after starting out with a 2034,” said Coach Black. “Cameron and Kordell stepped up with their best scores and we’ve been waiting for that to happen. We are young and inexperienced (4 sophomores, 1 freshman) and sometimes it takes a while for them to understand what we coach and they buy in. Shelby has been a steadying influence on them and has improved over 30 pins from last year.”

The NOBC Tournament is at Tri County Bowl in Woodville Friday with girls teams competing at 5 p.m. and the boys teams bowl Saturday at 1 p.m.
