RAVENNA 50, SPRINGFIELD 27

The host Ravens outscored the Spartans 20-5 in the second quarter to take a 26-12 halftime lead en route to a PTC Metro victory.

Moe Moe Smith led a balanced attack for Ravenna (16-6, 12-2 PTC Metro) with 10 points.

The Ravens finished the regular season one game out of first place in the Metro Division, ending the program's three-year reign of championships. Entering Wednesday's game, Ravenna still had an opportunity to share the title with division-leading Norton, but needed the Kent Roosevelt Rough Riders to pull the upset against the Panthers. Norton, however, turned back the Riders 40-29 in Kent.

Sam Karas had 12 points for Springfield (7-15, 1-13).

MOGADORE 45, EAST CANTON 34

The Wildcats jumped out to a 10-point halftime lead and the visiting Wizards never caught up in the final PTC County Division game of the season for both teams on Wednesday.

Brianne Porter scored a game-high 15 points, including four 3-pointers, to lead Mogadore (9-13, 8-6), while Ashley Barker added 11 points.

Megan Gothard paced East Canton (4-17, 1-13) with 13 points.

CRESTWOOD 50, STREETSBORO 41

The visiting Red Devils raced out to a 29-14 halftime lead in downing the Rockets in a PTC Metro Division contest.

Allison Vannoy scored 21 points to lead Crestwood (11-10, 5-9). She hit for nine field goals, including a pair from 3-point range and was the only Red Devils player to reach double-digits. Tia Nuti added nine points for Crestwood.

Alison Targosky and Shania Williams each scored 10 points for Streetsboro (5-17, 2-12).

The Rockets outscored the Red Devils 27-21 in the second half, but the team's first-half hole was too big to get out of.

SOUTHEAST 72, ROOTSTOWN 69

The visiting Pirates held off a second-half rally by the Rovers for a PTC County victory Wednesday night.

Southeast (17-5, 13-1) put four players in double figures, led by Shayna White with 17 points. Katelyn McCullough buried four 3-pointers on her way to 15 points, followed by Brittany Butcher with 13 points and Rachel Stull with 11 points.

For Rootstown (9-13, 5-9), Casey Miracle scored 16 points and grabbed 11 rebounds. Brandi Barkhurst scored 14 points, while Jalynn Myers added 12 points.

The win completes the Pirates' championship-winning season, which was the program's first since 2007-08.

FIELD 56, COVENTRY 40

Camille Adelman notched a double-double by scoring 14 points and pulling down 12 rebounds to lead the host Falcons to a PTC Metro Division win over the Comets.

Morgan Peachey, Tiffany Spaller and Katrina Eldreth all joined Adelman in double-digits by scoring 12 points each for Field (15-7, 9-5).

Kristi Morisak led Coventry (8-12, 3-10) with 10 points, while Courtney Bassinger grabbed five rebounds.

WATERLOO 65, WOODRIDGE 60 (2OT)

The host Vikings outscored the Bulldogs 9-4 in the second overtime to pull out a thrilling PTC County Division victory.

For Woodridge (11-11, 8-6), Lizzie Wilkinson led all scorers in the game with 27 points and dominated defensively with eight blocked shots and 10 rebounds. Wilkinson was backed by Abbe Esterak with 18 points, to go along with her five assists.

The Bulldogs established a 32-22 lead at halftime, before the Vikings stormed out to an 18-point third quarter that got them back into the game and doubled up Woodridge's third-quarter point total.

WINDHAM 46, GARFIELD 32

The host Bombers took command of the game with an 18-2 second quarter to lead 29-14 at the break and capture a PTC County Division contest.

Dari Heller paced Windham (12-10, 7-7) with 12 points.
