MILLBURY — Lake’s girls basketball team held Eastwood to a single point in the third quarter Thursday en route to a 47-26 victory to remain undefeated in the Northern Buckeye Conference.

The Flyers’ Alexis Hansen led all scorers with 12 points, including seven in the second quarter.
“We showed up in the first half and it was a ball game,” said Eastwood head coach Lindsay Ross. “I am not sure what happened out of the half.”
Lake suffocated Eastwood with its full-court press.
“It was the pressure and our guards just didn’t do as well as they could have,” Ross said.
Despite the turnovers and being down 12-2 to begin the first quarter, Eastwood battled back to a single-digit lead with a strong defensive effort concluding the first half. The Eagles trailed 24-16 at the half.
Out of the gate in the third quarter, a Sumer Woodruff three-pointer, a bucket by Catie Phalen and another three by Hansen put the Flyers up 32-16.
Emily Hayward had the only point for Eastwood in the third.
The Eagles had chances to keep the game close at the free-throw line, but were unable to capitalize and went a dismal 1-of-8 from the free-throw line in the third.
Eastwood was 10-of-24 from the free-throw line and Lake was 7-of-11.
Other top scorers for Lake were Woodruff, nine; Jordyn Taylor, eight; and Sara Dabney, seven.
Lake head coach Jim Gracyk credited Eastwood for its defense in limiting Taylor on the offensive end.
“They knew they wanted to keep Jordyn out of the picture,” he said.
He expressed disappointment in a somewhat stagnant offense.
“I didn’t think for a while there we were going to get to 40,” he said.
Mackenzie Albright paced Eastwood with five points.
Eastwood is still chasing its first win under its first-year head coach.
“It’s a step-by-step process. Every game we are getting closer to where we need to be to get that first win. We just have to keep the girls positive,” Ross said.
Lake won the junior varsity game in overtime 23-20. Chloe Huston had 10 points for Lake and Makennah Miller had six for Eastwood.
