Abby Meyer scored 14 points on Wednesday to lead the Amanda-Clearcreek High School girls basketball team past Northridge 50-28 in the second round of the Division III district tournament at Pickerington North.

The second-seeded Aces improved to 20-2 and advanced to play Columbus School for Girls or Ready at 8 p.m. Tuesday at Olentangy Liberty in a district semifinal. Ready and CSG will play at 6:15 p.m. Thursday at Westerville North.

Northridge, which had a first-round bye, finished the season at 0-20.

Meyer scored seven points in the first period as the Aces led 15-3 after the first period. The Vikings did not have a basket until Keilah Ketron hit a short jumper with 1 minute, 18 seconds remaining in the opening quarter.

"We started slow, but we always start slow," Northridge coach Ron Florey said. "I couldn't have asked for anything more because they gave everything they had. We knew we were big underdogs coming in."

The Vikings didn't back down. They trailed 22-10 at halftime and cut the deficit to 26-17 with 2:45 remaining in the third when Lindsay Rose hit her second 3-pointer.

"They were a scrappy bunch who kept coming at us," Amanda-Clearcreek coach Butch Kobel said. "They hustled and played aggressive defense."

After the Rose 3-pointer, the Aces went on a 5-0 run and regained control of the momentum.

"It would have been easy to quit when you're 0-20, but we didn't," Florey said. "They were still diving for loose balls with four seconds left in the game. You can't ask for more than that."

Aimee Hall and Gretchen Meyer added nine points apiece for Amanda-Clearcreek, and Jenna Ruble had eight.

Jessica Johnson and Diedre Wells both had eight points to lead the Vikings.
