The Redbirds got out to a fast start, outscoring Galion in the first quarter by a score of 29-2. Going into halftime, Loudonville carried a 40-13 lead. The Lady Tigers came out sluggish in the second half as well, scoring just four points in the third quarter. Loudonville had 19 points in the third and poured on 22 more in the fourth en route to the 81-30 win.

Nikki Weber (24), Emily Seboe (19) and Madison Leedy (13) all scored in double figures for Loudonville against the Tigers. Seboe was responsible for five of the 10 three-pointers made on the evening.

Gabby Kaple was the leading Galion scorer with 11 points in the loss. Jamie Ehrman scored four buckets to add eight points in the loss. Kaple was also the leading rebounder on the night, grabbing five of the Tigers’ 20 total rebounds.

As a team, the Tigers shot just 21% from the field (7/33), including 3/12 from three-point land. Kaple hit two of the threes and Dani Schieber added the other. Galion was 7/11 from the charity stripe on the night against the Lady Redbirds.
