Abby Sattler provided the answer for Perrysburg’s girls Friday night.
With a quick start to the second half, Bowling Green cut the Yellow Jackets’ lead to 34-31 with 5:45 remaining in the third quarter.
Sattler then hit three straight 3-pointers, all from the top of the key, in the span of 1:54 to put Perrysburg in control of the game.
The Yellow Jackets, ranked No. 12 in Division I, then pulled away, posting a 70-48 win over the Bobcats.  PHOTO GALLERY
‘‘That’s our transition. They came out and screen, and I’m at the top (of the key), hopefully for an open shot,’’ Sattler said. ‘‘Once I made the one shot, then I got a of confidence and they just started falling from there.’’
Sattler finished with five 3-pointers and a game-high 21 points to provide Perrysburg’s outside scoring. Inside, Sarah Baer scored 20 points and Allex Brown had 15, including a 3-pointer. The two 6-foot-1 post players combined for 16 two-point field goals.
The Yellow Jackets found their shooting touch just a week after not being able to buy a basket against Southview.
‘‘We couldn’t throw it in, even if we were standing right about the rim,’’ Perrysburg head coach Todd Sims said. ‘‘Today, everybody shot well. We played really well offensively for most of the night.’’
‘We just got a rhythm going and everything seemed to fall for us,’’ Sattler said about the improved shooting.
The Bobcats game planned to defend the inside, but Sattler’s outside touch opened up the inside game.
‘‘We tried to keep them out of the paint. We have a world of respect for Allex Brown and Sarah Baer; they are tremendous players,’’ BG head coach Jeff Nichols said. ‘‘They got a couple of good looks for Sattler, and she knocked them down. It seems like every time we play them, she has a good shooting night.
‘‘Our kids bought in with our defensive plan, and that really showed when it was 34-31 and they were really playing hard,’’ Nichols added. ‘‘When she (Sattler) is able to come off the screen and make a couple of those tough shots, it deflates you a little bit.’’
In the final minute of the first quarter, Sattler hit a three and Baer scored on an offensive rebound to give the Yellow Jackets a 21-12 lead after eight minutes.
Hanna Williford scored six of her team-high 18 points in the second quarter to pull the Bobcats to within 32-25 at the half.
The Bobcats made a 6-2 run to start the third quarter, but then Sattler hit her three straight triples.
‘‘Abby was huge,’’ Sims said. ‘‘She gave us a bigger lead, and then it stretches the defense out which makes it easier for us to get the ball inside.’’
‘‘(Sattler) made a couple of shots, that’s not a big problem. But we didn’t follow that shot up with a solid possession,’’ Nichols said. ‘‘We got a little frustrated, maybe a little out of kilter because she canned a couple. It kind of went bad to worse.’’
Baer made two baskets to cap the 13-0 run. After Kendal Glandorff scored for BG with 1:29 to play in the third quarter, the Yellow Jackets closed the quarter on a 6-0 run to lead 54-33.
‘‘When you give a team like that a little separation, it’s going to be hard to beat them,’’ Nichols said.
The scoring was close to even in the fourth quarter as Perrysburg posted a 22-point win.
‘‘It’s a compliment to our team, and maybe to the program, that we’re going to get everybody’s ‘A’ game,’’ Sims said. ‘‘We may see them on film against somebody, or see a score, and say that was kind of closer than it should have been. And then we don’t play the same team.’’
BG’s Livvy Dill scored 11 points, going 9-of-9 from the free-throw line.
The Bobcats made their first 14 free throws in the game, and finished 15-of-17 from the line.
‘‘We’ve been struggling (from the free-throw line) and we challenged them. We told them a little history that we had some good free-throw shooters come through here, and that’s a place where they are giving you points.
‘‘The kids responded to it; it kept us in the game up to that point where she (Sattler) nailed her three threes.’’
The Yellow Jackets, 12-1 overall and 10-0 in the Northern Lakes League, face a tough test at Toledo Central Catholic Saturday, while Bowling Green, 8-7, 4-6, hosts Toledo Whitmer.
Perrysburg won the junior varsity game 55-27. Sarah Stapleton scored 13 points for the Yellow Jackets.
