Loveland, Ohio – The physical, aggressive Walnut Hills defense, unchecked by the officials and unadjusted to by the Tigers took its toll in the Walnut Hills’ 2nd and 3rd quarter hammering on Wednesday. Final score 66-40. The Eagles’ 41 to 25 rebounding advantage, 6 blocked shots, 17 steals, and the Tiger’s 30 turnovers were also deciding.

As would have been expected, the Eagles’ Kennedi Myles led all scores with 21 points and 15 rebounds. She leads the ECC in scoring average with 16.5.

The league’s second-leading scorer, Tiger, Jillian Hayes (15.9) ended the game with 11 points and 9 rebounds. Courtney Henthorn scored 9, Kate Garry 8, and Colleen Swift scored 7.

Loveland led by 1 at the end of the 1st quarter, but an unproductive 4-point 2nd was momentum losing when Walnut Hills scored 16. Walnut Hills upped the ante with a 22-9, 3rd quarter. Both teams played evenly in the fourth but the game had gotten out of hand with the Tigers down by 24 when it started.

Walnut Hills, now undefeated in conference play took the top spot in the ECC away from Loveland (5-1, 10-1). West Clermont who Loveland hosts Saturday at 2 PM dropped the Tigers to 3rd with their 5-0 record after beating Anderson 64-32 on Wednesday.
