GALION — The Galion Tigers girls basketball program lost their second straight basketball game last Thursday night against Mid-Ohio Athletic Conference Red Division foe, the North Union Wildcats.

North Union dominated from the tip and took a 20-10 over the Tigers into the second quarter. Much the same occurred in the second when the Wildcats outscored Galion 22-2 to take a 42-12 lead into halftime. The Tigers couldn’t muster up much offense in the second half, only scoring a total of 15 more points and eventually losing the game, 80-27.

A low shooting percentage and turnovers seemed to haunt the Tigers in the matchup. Galion was just 8/29 from two-point range and 3/14 from deep. The Lady Tigers turned the ball over a total of 27 times against the Wildcats.

Lauren Huggins was the high scorer for Galion with 10 points while Sophie Carson added five. Huggins was 2/4 from three-point range on the night. Natalie Rodriguez was the top rebounder for Galion, grabbing five of the team’s 17 total rebounds.

DELAWARE — After the defeat on Thursday, the Tigers had to turn around and head down to Delaware for another conference game, this time against the Buckeye Valley Barons. Galion would fall, for their third straight loss, 68-34. With the defeat, the Lady Tigers would fall to 1-3 on the year and 0-2 in the league.

Galion trailed after the first quarter, 19-5 and Buckeye Valley showed no signs of letting off the gas. The Barons took a 37-17 lead into intermission en route to their eventual 34-point win.

Dani Schieber provided a spark for the Tigers on the night, scoring 18 points on 5/8 shooting from three-point territory. Gabby Kaple was the second leading scorer with five. Shae Ness grabbed seven of Galion’s 23 rebounds to lead the way in that statistic.

The Lady Tigers shot just 1/21 from the field and turned the ball over 25 times against their conference rivals. Galion was 50% from behind the arc at 8/16. The Tigers were also 8/13 from the chairty stripe againt Buckeye Valley.

The Tigers look to regroup after a tough weekend and will head to Bellville to take on Clear Fork in non-league action on Tuesday Dec.6.
