  • Published in Sports

Oak Harbor 56, Port Clinton 45

A few days before playing Clyde, Oak Harbor defeated Port Clinton, 56-45, in the sectional semifinal. The Rockets, who lost to the Redskins both times in the regular season, jumped out to an early lead and never looked back.

Oak Harbor took a 15-5 lead after the first quarter with the big play coming as Andy Rathbun connected on a three-pointer just before the buzzer. The Rockets pushed the advantage to 20-5 at the 4:41 mark of the second quarter as they held Port Clinton (8-13) to just two field goals in the game’s first 12 minutes. 

Down 41-27 to begin the fourth quarter, the ‘Skins went on a 12-5 run to cut the deficit to 46-39, but Oak Harbor ended any hopes of a comeback when Deshawn Johnson and Paul Shay scored on back-to-back baskets with 2:38 remaining to close it out.

Tate Haar led all scorers with 18 points, Johnson finished with 15 and Rathbun scored eight. Port Clinton got a combined 24 points from the Rumball brothers, with Tytan scoring 13 and Carter filling in with 11.

Port Clinton lady bowlers finish tenth

  • Published in Sports

Port Clinton's Lady Redskin Bowlers finished tenth at the OHSAA State Finals in Columbus Saturday. They missed the cut to the top 8 by only 43 pins. Alysia Zoeller earned Second Team All Ohio for bowling a 584 series on games of 186-197-201. 

"Our girls earned valuable experience by competing at State", said Coach Bob Black. "We had the cut in our reach, but too many errant first ball shots and too many missed single pin spares cost us advancing to the Baker Matches. Alysia bowled great all day, with only four open frames, and that's what they all have to do to compete at a higher level next year. Freshman Jozlynn Seamon came in and struck or spared ten straight frames. She will compete for a starting position next season. Reilly Wittman rolled a strong second game, and Sam Stroupe was solid all day."
