COLUMBIANA, OH – As the 2019-2020 girls basketball season wraps up, the final game of the year for the Crestview Lady Rebels was a home, non-conference match up against a very talented McDonald Blue Devils team. The Lady Rebs also closed out their season with senior night to honor Madi Wick and Tanner Hoffer.

The first two quarters saw both teams battle each other with very little separation as Molly Howard’s three first half three pointers gave McDonald a 17-14 lead at the break. The third quarter saw much of the same as McDonald clung to a five point advantage heading into the final quarter. In that fourth quarter however, the Blue Devils sprung to life, as Crestview’s tough defense did all they could to try to contain Howard and Sophia Constantino, but ultimately, the Lady Rebels fell short, 43-29.

The McDonald Blue Devils were led by Molly Howard with 21 points and Sophia Constantino with 13 points.

The Crestview Lady Rebels were led by Krista Perry with 10 points and Addison Bandy with 8 points.

Up next for Crestview (14-8) will be their first game of the 2020 OHSAA state playoffs, as they will welcome the winner of the #5 Rootstown vs #12 Canton Central Catholic game to town on February 22nd.
