It was a thrilling game that came down to the final seconds on Saturday, Jan. 31, when the Magnolia Lady Eagles played host to the Lady Golden Bears of Oak Glen.
The home team held a 30-19 advantage at the half and a six-point edge after three, but in the second half the Bears outscored the Eagles 43-31 to get the nod, 65-61.
Ludewig led MHS scorers with 21 points, including one from behind the arc. Bosley had a career-high 17 markers that included one from downtown, while Haught ponied up 10 points. Murdock added seven points and Riggs put up six.
Four Williamstown Lady Yellowjackets scored in double figures – including 15 points from freshman sensation Liz Flowers – as they improved to 13-3 on the season Jan. 26 with a 69-46 shellacking of the Magnolia Lady Eagles at Williamstown.
Williamstown started with a 7-1 lead and never looked back. Magnolia fought back with an 8-2 run of its own that knotted the game at nine. However, the ‘Jackets ended the first period on 10 straight points.
Ludewig kept the visitors to within striking distance at 21-16 in the first three minutes of the second period. However, the ‘Jackets turned it up a notch and outscored the Blue Eagles 14-2 over the next three minutes.
Following a pair of Ludewig charity tosses, Flowers nailed down a basket from beyond the arc to give the hosts a comfortable 38-21 lead at the break.
Magnolia kept the margin respectable halfway into the third period at 46-30, but a 12-3 Williamstown surge put the game out of reach.
Ludewig’s 16 markers paced the Eagles, with Riggs following with seven markers. Haught and Murdock each netted six points, while Jordan Babe knocked in a threeball. Bosley sank two attempts from the charity stripe to finish the Lady Eagle scoring.
The Lady Eagles stay at home Thursday, Feb. 5, when they will host the Parkersburg Crusaderettes for a 7 p.m. tipoff.
