Northview girls advance to sectional finals

BLOOMINGTON — Northview and Owen Valley posted victories in the semifinals of the Class 3A West Vigo Sectional on Saturday to advance to the championship game.

Owen Valley rallied to defeat the host Vikings 49-42 and Northview led all the way in besting Edgewood's Western Indiana Conference champs 42-36.

In the opener, West Vigo had a 15-14 lead after one period but the Patriots came back to lead 29-23 at halftime and 40-38 going into the fourth period.

The Vikings cut that lead to 41-40 but the Patriots scored the next six points and had a 47-40 lead with about two minutes left in the game.

Kylie Cardinal led the Vikings with a season-best 20 points, nine rebounds and two steals. She had 10 of her team's points in the first quarter. No other West Vigo player was in double figures but Shyanne Elkins had eight points and six boards and Lex Elkins had six points and five rebounds.

Alicia Wilson led Owen Valley with 21 points; she was good on 8 of 10 free throws, making four in the last quarter. Zaine Bucy and Cecilia Herrington each had nine rebounds to help give the Patriots a 37-31 edge on the boards. West Vigo had a 15-13 edge in field goals but OV was good on 20 of 26 free throws.

West Vigo coach Ryan Easton liked the effort of his players but not the results.

“One of our goals was to keep Owen Valley off the free-throw line. We did not do a very good of that … they were good at the line. I cannot fault our effort. We battled. A few different bounces did not go our way,” he said.

“I am saying now that we want to be the favorite in the sectional and conference next year. We have that kind of confidence,” he added.

West Vigo had two seniors on the roster and both started.

In the second game, Northview never trailed, leading 8-4 after one period, 16-11 at halftime and 26-14 going into the final period.

The Mustangs scored 22 points in the fourth frame, connecting on 9 of 12 shots with two treys, but the Knights cashed seven of 11 free throws to secure the victory.

Both teams had 15 field goals and 32 rebounds.

Mikayla Rowan had a double-double for the winners with 16 points, 13 rebounds and three steals. Stacy Payton had 10 points, hitting three free throws in the final period, and Mallory Smith had seven points and 10 rebounds.

Erin Sherfield was the only player for Edgewood in double figures with 10. Vanessa Brown had nine rebounds and Jasmine Carter pulled down seven boards.

“I am really proud of our girls. We had a good game plan and they came out and executed it tremendously. Mallory Smith did a  fantastic job on Brown. She only had three points. Our main focus was to stop her. We executed just well enough on offense to score enough points. We knew it was going to be this type of game,” said Northview coach Scott Buell.

“Edgewood is very fundamental and plays very good defense. We made enough shots and played outstanding defense to get the W,” he added.

The Knights went after their third victory of the season over Owen Valley in the championship game.
