WILLIAMSBURG – The Blanchester High School girls basketball team was defeated by unbeaten Williamsburg 67-36 Thursday in SBAAC National Division action at the WHS gym.
The Ladycats drop to 7-11 overall and 5-6 in the division.
Williamsburg is now 20-0 overall and 12-0 in the National Division.
“I wish nothing but the best for Williamsburg as they start tournament play next week,” BHS coach Bradon Pyle said. “I hope both our teams can make a run and represent the SBAAC well.”
Regan Ostermeier led Blanchester with 14 points. Olivia Gundler had eight. Both Elecia Patton and Dakota Watters scored six points. Watters also hauled in a team-best 11 rebounds.
Jessica Chase led Williamsburg with 22 points. Alexis Chase had 15 and Peyton Fisher scored nine.
“Last time we played them, Fisher had 21, (Alexis) Chase had 16 and (Jessica) Chase had nine,” said Pyle. “Our goal was to try to shut down two of the three, but that’s a large task. It just goes to show how dominate those three can be that on any given night, any of them can lead them.
“Our girls executed our gameplan well defensively in the first half. We just couldn’t solve their defense in the third quarter and it did us in.”
