CLAYTON — Shalaya Heath scored all 10 of Northmont’s first quarter points and finished the game with a team-high 14 Wednesday during a 51-40 loss to Beavercreek.
Beavercreek led by one after the first quarter and by six at halftime and never surrendered its lead the entire second half when Northmont couldn’t seem to get its offense in sync. The Lady Bolts only managed to generate seven third quarter points, a 3-pointer by Makayla Cooper and a basket by Camryn Nadir and Kaitlyn McCrary. Beavercreek had its problems scoring inside but got a 3-pointer by Taylor Steinbrunner and Kirsten Williams, two more baskets and a free throw to maintain a 10 point lead.
The Beavers had other issues as well. Missed layups and inconsistent foul shooting proved frustrating. It’s a Beavercreek team that has been running hot and cold from game to game.
