(February 3rd, 2015) – WAUSEON: In non-conference junior varsity action, the Lady Indians of Wauseon hosted Green Meadows Conference opponent Tinora on February 3.
After taking an early lead in the contest, Wauseon trailed until late in the fourth quarter, when they gained a brief advantage. The Lady Rams would come back to force overtime, however, and the young Indian girls lost the game 45-40.
Getting off to a strong start, the Wauseon defense allowed Tinora to go on a run to close the first quarter, tying the game 10-10. From there, the Rams built a lead in the second quarter, and defended that lead quite well in the third period as well.
The Indians never gave up, though, and with less than a minute to go in the fourth and supposedly final period, a pair of free throws by Halen Mealer put Wauseon ahead. Tinora came back to tie the contest at 40 points apiece, which was the final score in regulation.
Wauseon’s offense went stagnant in the extra period, however, and they were outscored 5-0 in that span, leading to their defeat.
