EAST LIVERPOOL, OH- The Beavers won in dominating fashion by defeating the Buckeye Local Panthers by a final score of 60-26. It was all Beavers for 32 minutes.

The Beavers jumped out to an early lead and didn’t look back. It was 19-3 by the end of the first and things didn’t change much after that. Feeding Jenna Ricardo and Eli Kolkowski was the gameplan for the Beavers and it worked to perfection. A couple of threes here and there also helped, as they took a 28 point lead into halftime. The score was 48-24 after 3 quarters and then we some bench players play significant minutes, such as Jensen Britt and Kitty Chen. The Beavers took a 34 point victory home to start the week off right.

Madison Cline took the reigns for Beaver Local with 16 points and 9 boards.  Riccardo filled the stat sheet with 14 points, 7 rebounds, 8 steals, and 4 assists, while Kolkowski had a double-double with a dozen points and 10 rebounds.

If you’re looking for more action from the Red and White, the Beavers boys basketball team will host the Edison Wildcats Tuesday on YSN Beaver Local with an approximate start time of 7:00-7:30.
