A banged up Tuscarawas Central Catholic girls basketball team had no luck against host Newcomerstown on Wednesday as the Lady Trojans picked up an easy 56-25 victory.
Central Catholic was without a few players, Newcomerstown coach Tripp Hisrich said. They were playing with only five girls and that definitely made a difference.
Newcomerstown senior Kori Conner enjoyed a big night, turning in a game-high 18 points and also hauling down 19 rebounds.
Junior Allie Hinton chalked up 14 points for Newcomerstown (8-9, 6-7 IVC), while senior Taylor Postel contributed eight points.
We came out and we executed like we wanted to, Hisrich said. We preach to the girls to play to our standard and no one elses. We were able to go up early and give a lot of kids playing time.
Its easy to come in against a beat up opponent and get unfocused, Hisrich said. We kept our focus and we got production from Conner and Hinton.
The Lady Saints (3-12, 2-10 IVC) got 16 points from Coral Contini.
No reserve game was played.
