Westview and Prairie Heights lose in sectional play

Westview and Prairie Heights ran into buzz saws Friday night in the semifinal round of the Central Noble girls basketball sectional.

Bremen shot 64 percent (16-25) from the floor in the first half to build a 42-17 lead on the Lady Warriors. From there, the Lady Lions cruised to a 71-46 victory.

In the second game, Central Noble raced to a 20-0 lead over the Lady Panthers and breezed to a 68-18 triumph.

The host Lady Cougars went on to rout Bremen, 55-29 Saturday night to claim their second straight 2A sectional crown.

It became apparent early on that this was not to be Westview’s night. Bremen’s Dellerina Duran, who came into the game averaging 3.2 points a contest, nearly tripled that clip in the first period. The 5-8 sophomore sank four field goals to help the Lady Lions bolt to a 20-8 advantage.

Things didn’t get much better for the Lady Warriors in the second quarter. Four Bremen three-pointers sparked a 22-9 surge which boosted the halftime margin to 25. The last of the triples was banked in at the buzzer by Paige Thompson, accounting for her only three points of the night.

“It can be a bit deflating when you see those shots continue to fall,” said Westview coach Randy Yoder. “But our girls continued to compete throughout the game.”

When Bremen wasn’t connecting from the perimeter, Karlee Feldman was doing damage in the post. The 6-1 junior poured in 24 points to lead the victors.

Erin Coffel (15), Duran (12) and Kaelyn Shively (11) joined Feldman in double digits for the Lady Lions.

Ashya Klopfenstein netted 22 points to lead Westview, which finishes the campaign 11-13.

Four baskets by Meleah Leatherman and three from Sydney Freeman fueled Central Noble’s opening salvo against Prairie Heights. Leatherman would finish with a game-high 19 points.

The Lady Panthers finally scored 24 seconds into the second quarter on a Shelby Fish field goal. The senior would later add a free throw, giving her 1009 points for her career.

Alexis German’s four points led the Lady Panthers, who wind up the season 6-18.
