Vincent - The Warren High School girls basketball team inched a step closer to claiming the last East Central Ohio League crown following Saturday afternoon’s 56-31 victory against Dover inside the Warrior Coliseum.
Back in late November, the Warriors had to use a rally in the fourth quarter to knock off the Tornadoes, 46-43.
Nothing of the sort transpired in this affair, though, as Warren head coach Amy Way watched her team drain 10 of 17 shots in the first half, including 5 of 6 from downtown, en route to holding a commanding 29-6 advantage at the break.
Abbie Smith led the Warriors, now 8-5 overall and 4-0 in the ECOL, with a game-high 21 points to go along with seven rebounds. Alex Frazee tossed in 14 points and finished with game-highs of 10 assists and three steals.
“I think we were making shots because we were moving the ball so well,” admitted coach Way, who also received eight counters apiece from Kelly Jackson and Sophie Cochran. “I thought our passing, inside-out, and making that extra pass so we were getting good rhythm shots.
“We shot extremely well in that first half. I thought we did a great job of getting the ball to Abbie and she did a great job of finding people on the outside when she got double teamed. Alex had a fantastic game with 10 assists and a double-double.”
