(February 21st, 2015) – EVERGREEN: In a make-up game from a couple of weeks ago, the Lady Eagles of Fayette challenged the Evergreen Vikings deep into North Western Ohio Athletic League territory on Saturaday, February 21.
The contest was tight, but the Fayette girls managed to pull out the 9 point road victory, 46-37.
In the opening period, the two teams battled to a tie, with each squad producing 11 points. The visiting Eagles were able to gain a lead in the second quarter, however, outscoring the Viking girls 13-7. That gave them a 24-18 advantage heading into the locker room.
Evergreen wasn’t about to give up, though. They came back in the third frame, putting up 15 points to Fayette’s 9, and retying the game. The fourth quarter belonged to the Lady Eagles, however, as they took charge with a 13-4 effort to close out the game down the stretch.
It was Taylor Griffiths who guided Fayette to victory. The junior girl used a balanced offensive attack to score 14 points. Teammate Kaela Seiler added 11 points to the Eagle collective score, while some fancy outside shooting by Hannah Machacek earned her 11 points of her own. Alexis Fruchey put up 6 points in the win as well.
