The Miami Trace Lady Panthers hosted Clinton-Massie for a South Central Ohio League match-up Wednesday night. The Lady Panthers hit eight three-point field goals and went 9 of 10 from the line on their way to a 57-28 victory.

Miami Trace (12-0, 8-0) was led by junior Tanner Bryant with 16 points. Bryant hit two 3-pointers for the Lady Panthers and led her team with six rebounds.

“Miami Trace is a well-oiled machine,” Clinton-Massie head coach Tim McGraw said. “We knew coming in they were going to press us and get after us.

“I thought the first couple of minutes we did a great job. Give my girls a lot of credit; they didn’t quit. But, 27 turnovers won’t keep you in many ballgames.”

Contrast that number with what could be a season-low of just six turnovers for Miami Trace.

For Clinton-Massie, sophomore Faith Cottrell led with 14 points. She connected on all four of her team’s three-point baskets.

“We didn’t give up and Faith hit a lot of big shots for us,” McGraw said. “She’s been shooting the ball really well for us.”

It was a bit of a slow start for both teams in front of a nice weekday crowd. Clinton-Massie got on the board first at the 6:15 mark on a pair of free throws by Madilyn Newton.

Victoria Fliehman tied the score and Bryant hit a three to give Miami Trace a 5-4 lead. The Lady Falcons scored with four minutes remaining in the first quarter for a 6-5 lead. It would be the visitor’s final lead of the game.

At the end of the first quarter, Miami Trace was in front, 16-8.

Miami Trace went on a 13-0 lead to start the second quarter. At the half, Miami Trace was in front, 34-14.

In the third quarter, Miami Trace outscored Clinton-Massie, 15-9, to stretch the lead to 49-23. Miami Trace led by as many as 31 points.

Clinton-Massie (5-7 overall and 1-6 in the SCOL) will be back in action Saturday at Hillsboro with the reserve game starting at 5:30 p.m.
