Van-Far opened the game with a 16-10 first quarter lead and pushed their edge to 10 points at halftime.
In the third quarter, the Lady Indians pushed ahead by 17 points before cruising to a 21-point win.
“My sophomores Jayle Jennings and Jordan Garner had a good game against Wellsville,” said Van-Far head coach Kelly Orf. “We played very under control even when the game started to get rough. We were able to get a nice team conference win.”
Jennings led the Lady Indians with 15 points, six rebounds, one steal, and one assist; Garner tallied 10 points, five steals, two rebounds, and one assist; Reaghan Case had nine points, two rebounds, two steals, and one assist; Jayda Borgmeyer tallied eight points, three rebounds, two steals, and two assists; Alexis DeTienne added six points, three rebounds, two steals, and two assists; Gina Clausen had four points, one rebound, and one assist; Katie Elzea dropped in four points; Morgan McDowell had two steals; Mackenzie Kurz had one rebound; and Alex Connaway added one steal.
Falling to rival
Though the Lady Indians stunned Bowling Green early with an 11-7 first quarter edge, they were unable to hold on as they lost the game, 59-33. Bowling Green outscored Van-Far 16-10 in the second quarter before scoring 36 of the 48 total points in the final two quarters for a 26-point win.
“Reaghan Case shot the ball well against Bowling Green,” Orf noted. “Bowling Green has a lot of height and we struggled against it.”
