GENOA — After trailing by 14 points in the first half, Rossford’s girls basketball team clawed its way back in the game, but came up short in the fourth quarter against Genoa, losing 57-52.
Friday night’s loss marked Rossford’s second loss in Northern Buckeye Conference play.
The Bulldogs are 7-4 overall and 4-2 in the league, falling two games behind NBC leader Elmwood (6-0).
Rossford trailed 30-16 in the second quarter, but battled back and took a brief 43-41 lead to begin the fourth quarter. But key rebounds by Genoa and offensive miscues by Rossford allowed the Comets to pull away with the win. Genoa is 9-3, 4-2.
“I’m proud of the girls for battling back after we put ourselves in one heck of a hole,” Rossford coach Eric Simon said.

Quick starts to both halves helped Anthony Wayne down Bowling Green, 66-49 in a girls Northern Lake League game Friday.
‘‘I don’t want to make excuses, but we’ve had a long break. They (AW) were in the same boat, but it just made us a step slow,’’ BG head coach Jeff Nichols said. ‘‘We do a good job when we can be aggressive early and get in the flow of the game.
‘‘Tonight we were a little tentative, and in the end that’s what hurt us,’’ he continued. ‘‘If you take that tentativeness away in the first quarter and in the third quarter, it was actually fairly even with a lot of things.
‘‘We have to play a full 32 minutes ... It is tough to start against a good team in the hole.’’

PERRYSBURG — It was a spectrum of highs and lows for Perrysburg’s boys basketball team Friday night.
On one end, the Yellow Jackets shot 68 percent (32-of-47) from the field. But at the other end, poor all-around play early and a stretch of turnovers in the third quarter gave Northview a slight chance of an upset.  PHOTO GALLERY
A slight chance was a far as it would go.
Perrysburg bounced back from its brief lapses and trounced the Wildcats, 79-51 in a Northern Lakes League contest.
The Jackets are 8-0 overall and 4-0 in the NLL, while Northview is 1-7, 0-4.
“We were pretty consistent on offense except at the end of the third quarter, and that was turnovers,” said Perrysburg head coach Dave Boyce, who saw his team commit five turnovers in eight possessions in the middle of the third quarter.

PERRYSBURG — In one of its ugliest performances of the season, Perrysburg’s girls basketball team still found a way to remain unbeaten Friday night against Northview.
Playing in their first game since Dec. 21, the Yellow Jackets committed 23 turnovers but contained the Wildcats inside, resulting in a 56-46 Northern Lakes League win.  PHOTO GALLERY
“We played really, really well in the first half. Looking back now, that’s kind of what won us the game,” said Perrysburg head coach Todd Sims, whose team held a 27-16 lead at halftime.
Perrysburg, 9-1 overall and 8-0 in the NLL, had 16 turnovers in the second half, with 10 coming in the third quarter.
But Northview (9-1, 5-3) could not capitalize. The Wildcats came within just 10 points on two occasions in the final 16 minutes.

Anthony Wayne used its height, strength, and athleticism to take control of the game early against Bowling Green Friday night.
The Generals, with three players 6-foot-3 or taller in the starting lineup, scored 42 points in the first half, and led 77-46 in the fourth quarter before setting for a 77-61 victory.
‘‘They man-handled us from the get-go,’’ BG head coach Mark Malinowski said. ‘‘We can all beg for an over-the-back call, or this or that ... We didn’t match their physicality. Their size and their strength definitely hurt us.’’
Jake Reid, a 6-5 senior, scored 10 points in the first quarter as AW took a 20-9 lead after eight minutes.
‘‘It’s tough to dig yourself out of a hole like that,’’ Malinowski said.
In the second quarter, Matt Fox, a 6-3 senior, took over scoring nine points as the Generals extended their lead to 42-21 at the half.
