The Hilliard Bradley High School girls basketball team will face its sister schools in the coming days, as the Jaguars will travel to Davidson on Saturday, Dec. 12, before playing host to Darby on Tuesday, Dec. 15, in the first of two league matchups.

Bradley, which was 2-0 overall and in the OCC-Cardinal Division before playing Westerville Central on Dec. 8, plays host to Westerville South in league game Friday, Dec. 11.

The Jaguars defeated Dublin Jerome 53-42 on Dec. 4 behind 20 points from junior guard Carly Allocco.

Allocco scored the first two points of the fourth quarter to give the Jaguars their largest lead at 46-30. Senior guard Grace Fodor and sophomore guard Kamerin Hillis both added nine points and sophomore guard Teneea Heston had seven.

"We got better since (a 38-34 win over Westerville North on Dec. 1)," coach Kathy Lindsey said. "This was our first road game. It was on the road against a good team, a league opponent, so I was pleased with the result."

Allocco also scored 20 points against North, with Fodor adding nine.

Panthers beat Pacers for first victory

Darby posted its first victory by beating host Delaware 62-30 on Dec. 5 behind 17 points from senior forward Sam Sech.

The Panthers were 1-3 overall and 0-1 in the OCC-Cardinal before playing Canal Winchester on Dec. 8, but coach Jordi Korbas was pleased with her team's progress, especially during a 55-46 league loss to Westerville North on Dec. 4.

"The afternoon win over Delaware was a much-needed one after a tough loss to Westerville North the night before," Korbas said.

"But we played better against North than we did in our first two games. We just have had problems with two- or three-minute lulls. We lose our focus and have trouble catching up. That happened in the third quarter (against North).

"But our five experienced girls are doing a nice job leading the young kids, and they're meshing pretty well. We just need to find consistency and not have those lapses, especially as the young girls gain valuable experience."

Sech had a team-high 10 points against North, with junior guard Jessica Cox scoring nine and senior forward Regan Carsey adding eight.

Darby had a difficult second quarter during a 61-41 loss to Marysville on Dec. 1, as it was outscored 17-2 in the period.

Wildcats looking to get back on track

After opening with a victory, Davidson had lost two in a row before playing Westland in an OCC-Central game Dec. 8.

The Wildcats fell to Watterson 54-40 on Dec. 1 before losing to Dublin Coffman 74-51 on Dec. 4 to drop to 1-1 in the league.

Senior guard Baylee Lawson had 15 points against Watterson and senior guard Davawnna Clark scored seven.

Against Coffman, junior guard Morgan Coleman scored nine points and senior forward Erin Helge added eight.

The Shamrocks had a 25-6 scoring advantage in the third quarter to pull away.
