VINCENT – Another sluggish start on offense resuled in a lopsided loss, as the Logan Lady Chiefs fell on the road at Warren, 63-29. From the onset, the Chiefs had no answer for a Warriors team who attempted more shots in the first quarter than Logan made in the whole game.
The game kicked off with a 10-0 run by Warren that was eventually broken by Brooklin Harris after 6:02 had eclipsed. She had the team’s only points in the first quarter as they were outscored 14-5. The Chiefs were trying to establish themselves by attempting 11 shots in the first period, but Harris was only able to sink a pair and they went zero of four from three.
The second quarter did not yield much better results. Logan scored eight points, all thanks to Harris again. Meanwhile, the junior from Warren, Abbie Smith, was having herself a day. At half, Smith had already scored 15 points and pulled down eight rebounds. She would not cool down as she finished the contest nine of 13 from the field and five of six at the line with a final stat line of 25 points, 16 rebounds and two assists.
The third quarter saw the most scoring of the contest. Warren outscored Logan 21-10 to increase its lead to 53-23. Non-Harris scorers found their way as Ella Guthrie sank a three, Alivia Magdich scored two, and Emaurice McKinney scored two to go with Harris’ three in the quarter. Shooting two of seven from the field in the third wasn’t enough as the Warriors found more success, shooting eight of 15.
Sophie Cochran for Warren was in her bag and was money from beyond the arc in this game. Her scoring was completed after three quarters: 15 points (five out of six from three), four rebounds, and assist. In the final quarter, Logan was outscored 10-6 as the running clock was utilized.
Overall, Logan looked out-matched, but close to breaking through. Harris continues to prove that she’s a play maker and it’s obvious why the Chiefs’ offense runs through her. Guthrie pulled down a team-high six rebounds, Magdich had four, and McKinney had three to go with her team’s only assist.
Even outside of Smith and Cochran, Warren experienced plenty of widespread success. Kelly Jackson scored seven points to go with her two rebounds and three assists and Alexis Frazee added six points, two rebounds, and seven assists.
Warren attempted 10 free throws and made eight whereas Logan attempted 16 and made seven.
The (6-9) Logan Chieftains look to get back on the winning path on Saturday, Jan. 15 at home against Pickerington North in a boys’ and girls’ basketball double-header.
