Parkersburg Catholic’s tight defense combined with Ravenswood continuing shooting woes turned a showdown of #3-ranked teams into a blowout Tuesday night at the RvHS Physical Education Building. Class A #3 Catholic posted a lopsided 54-32, handing the Devilettes their second straight LKC North loss.

The Crusaderettes used a 19-8 scoring bulge in the third quarter to put the game away, although they led 30-20 at the half. The final quarter was used by Catholic run clock as they led 49-28. Catholic took a 5-4 scoring advantage.

“They played great defense,” said Coach Chris Michael, “and we’re in a bit of a slump right now.”
Ravenswood’s second straight sub-40 point total bares out the offensive dip. Only junior point guard Emily Rector (15 points, trey) cracked double figures.

Hannah Murray added six points, Rebekah Samples five, Sarah McMillan four and Nicole Sadecky two. The Devilettes connected on 14 of 42 shots from the floor (33%) and just one of six from three-point range. They canned three of just eight free throws.

Maggie Boelter (four treys) paced the Crusaderettes with 15 points Coutney Ferguson added 13, Leah Hughes 10, Maddie Roedersheimer nine, Emily Koerber five and Katlyn Richards two. PC hit 19 of 37 from the floor (51%) and 11 of 16 from the charity stripe.

For the Devilettes, Sarah McMillan grabbed eight of her team’s 22 rebounds. PC grabbed 31 with Boelter leading the way with seven. Rector and Samles dished off two assists each. Gurtis and McMillan notched a pair of steals each.

Ravenswood (7-3, 4-2 LKC North) played at Ritchie County yesterday (Wednesday). They travel to Tyler Consolidated for a 1:30 p.m. game Saturday.
