PERRYSBURG — Bowling Green’s girls basketball team battled to the final possession, but came up just short in a 71-68 Division II district semifinal loss to a talented, athletic Toledo Rogers team at Perrysburg High School.
After trailing for nearly the entire game, the Bobcats battled to within one point in the fourth quarter. Bowling Green had a chance to tie the game with 23 seconds remaining in the fourth quarter, but was unable to execute the offensive set and turned the ball over. PHOTO GALLERY
“It’s a shame we didn’t win, but I am so proud of these kids,” BG coach Jeff Nichols said. “They are one of the most athletic teams we have seen this year and they have several Division I commits, but they had to play 32 minutes tonight.”
BG was led by senior point guard Hanna Williford who finished with 26 points. Tyanna Smith, who had to sit out much of the third quarter due to foul trouble, finished with 20 points and eight rebounds, including 16 first-half points. Smith made 10 free throws in a row through the first three quarters. Kendal Glandorff had 11 points and two blocked shots.
A Reagan Morman jumper from the wing with 1:56 remaining in the fourth quarter cut the lead to 66-64. Later, a Williford steal and layup made it 69-68 with 50 seconds remaining.
BG fouled to extend the game and Rogers’ Akienreh Johnson hit two free throws to make it 71-68. Johnson had 21 points for Rogers (21-4) and Sasha Dailey added 17. Both have made commitments to Division I schools.
“You can look back and we can look at a couple of calls here and there, a free throw here, a turnover there,” Nichols said. “You can’t ask for anything more from these kids than they gave.

FOSTORIA — It was certainly a tale of two halves for Perrysburg’s girls basketball team Thursday night against Lima Senior.
The Yellow Jackets missed layups early and often, leaving the Spartans with a halftime lead in a Division I district semifinal.
Then suddenly everything clicked for Perrysburg as it dominated the second half of a 66-48 win at Fostoria High School. PHOTO GALLERY
The sixth-ranked ’Jackets (22-3) play No. 7 Notre Dame Academy Saturday at 3 p.m. at Lake High School in a district final. It is Perrysburg’s fifth appearance in the district final in the last six years.
“I don’t think we played very well in the first half. ... There were just times that we missed a lot of shots that we normally make,” Perrysburg coach Todd Sims said. “It was just around the basket shots with nobody on us. We looked a little antsy.”
Trailing 28-26 at halftime, Perrysburg came out blazing in the third quarter hitting its first seven shots to take a 42-40 lead.
Sophomore Erika Joldrichsen subbed in for starting point guard Abby Sattler midway through the third, and she didn’t miss a beat. Sattler sat at the 4:31 mark with her third foul.
Although Joldrichsen did not score, she and Jenn Witt helped keep Perrysburg on track while facing heavy pressure from Lima’s full-court press.
“I was really nervous, obviously. But I knew I had to step up for my team and not make so many mistakes and try to handle the ball well and under control,” Joldrichsen said.
“It’s not easy to do,” Sims said of Joldrichsen’s effort off the bench. “As a coach you hope they can do it, but you never know what’s going on in someone’s head that was on the JV team and now she’s in the district semi against a team that was 20-4.”
With Sattler back in the mix at the start of the fourth, it was all but over for the Spartans.

Schmeltz finished with 20 points and Peters added 16.
