LOST SPRINGS — The Elyria Christian School girls once again got the better of Centre on Tuesday.

The Eagles scored 31 points in the middle two quarters to key a 53-42 victory.

Rachel Adamyk and Moriah Redenbaugh were a wrecking crew with 23 and 16 points, respectively. Christin Vetter was immense with 11 points and eight rebounds as it was a three-pronged attack.

“I was pleased with the way our girls adjusted offensively tonight,” ECS coach Greg Fields  said. “Centre threw a crazy defense at us where they double-teamed Rachel and our posts really stepped up in the first half. Moriah had a career high tonight with 16 points, and I believe 13 of those were in the first half. Christin Vetter has improved with her confidence under the basket and handling difficult passes.”

Adamyk is having one of the best seasons in Eagle history.

“Rachel was very special tonight,” Fields said. “She is not only setting scoring records this year, but she is such a team player. Centre did a good job taking away her driving lanes in the first half, so she was content with getting six assists. Her passing in the first half opened up her opportunities to score 19 in the second.”

• CENTRE BOYS 70, ELYRIA 59 — The Cougars used a pair of 20-point quarters in the second half to score 40 points and pull away from the Eagles, who had trailed only 30-29 at the half.

Aidan Fields had the hot hand with 19 points and Tyler Thiessen returned from an ankle injury to score 14.

Elyria coach Ben Starburg said the second half was the difference as the Cougars made about everything they looked at.
