The twice beaten Carrollton Lady Warrior basketball team gave themselves a belated Christmas gift last week on the road as they just got by host United Local 46-43 for their eighth win of the season.
They were hoping for another win last Saturday at home against West Branch, but a snow storm put a halt to that way of thinking. The Northeastern Buckeye Conference game was cancelled.
In Thursday’s win at United Local, Carrollton’s Monica Starre and Taylor Lowdermilk combined for 24 points, as each Lady Warrior put 12 points on the board.
Starre dumped in three of five attempts from the floor and hit on 6 of 9 free throw attempts for her dozen. Lowdermilk took somewhat of a longer range route as she connected on two shots from outside the arc, two from shorter range and went 2 for 4 at the stripe.
Savana Lowery tallied 8 points, Rachel Devine 7, Ali Poole 5 and Kelsey Voll 2 to close out Carrollton scoring. Poole had three blocked shots.
As a team, the Lady Warriors shot 40 percent from inside the arc and 22 percent from three-point land. They hit 8 of 13 free throws for 61 percent.
Carrollton pulled down 20 offensive rebounds and 13 defensive boards.
Emily Zehnetbauer led United Local in scoring with 14 points, while Courtney Hydrick posted an even dozen. The Lady Golden Eagles shot 20 percent from three-point range, 30 percent from the floor and 50 percent from the stripe.
United pulled down 15 offensive rebounds and 11 defensive cleaners.
