TALLMADGE 36, RAVENNA 30
A fourth-period rally fell short as the Ravens dropped a non-league game to the visiting Blue Devils on Saturday.
Ravenna (1-2) had an early 11-8 lead, but scored just two points in both the second and third quarters, to fall behind 27-15 heading into the fourth quarter.
The Ravens came to life, outscoring Tallmadge 15-9, but it proved too little, too late for Ravenna as it was unable to overcome its cold shooting in the middle of the contest.
"They limited our shots and the ones we did get, we didn't make," said Ravenna coach Sonny Tilden. "We didn't take care of the ball either. It was ugly, but it happens sometimes.
"We played better in the fourth quarter. It's how we should have played the whole game," offered the Ravens' mentor.
Kelsey Rice and Kirsten Lightel led the Blue Devils with 10 points each. Courtney Cross paced Ravenna with eight points.

CVCA 70, GARFIELD 42
The host G-Men fell into an early hole and were never able to recover as they dropped a non-league contest to the Royals.
CVCA (1-1) jumped out to 16-2 first-quarter lead and led 41-17 at halftime as Garfield was unable to get its offense going.
