PERKINS TWP. — Willard had some promising moments in Tuesday’s non-conference match against Perkins.

However, the Lady Pirates came out on top tallying wins of 25-20, 25-9, 25-17.

The Lady Flashes fell to 0-2 on the season.

Willard will host Lexington on Thursday in another non-league matchup.

Plymouth grabs win No. 3 over Mapleton

The Plymouth Big Red grabbed a 5-set thrilling win over Mapleton to improve to 3-0 on the year.

The Big Red won by scores of 16-25, 14-25, 25-20, 25-21 and 17-7. They are now 1-0 in the Firelands Conference


Lady Truckers earn non-league win

The Norwalk girls’ golf team completed the first half of their season with a 194-206 win over Mansfield Madison at The Woods at Possum Run.

The 1-2 punch of seniors Ellie Schneider and Addie Mannino led Norwalk with scores of 45 and 48, respectively.

Also scoring for Norwalk was Ana Little and Darian Brooks.

The Lady Truckers’ record stands at 44-26 as they slow down the marathon pace of matches and tournaments and look to a month of dual matches.

“I really like what I have seen so far,” Norwalk coach Don Nardecchia said. “As far as the Northern Ohio League race we went 3-1 through the first round and added a second round win over Willard as well. At 4-1 we have a huge maatch at Bellevue on September 1. We also visit Tiffin and then the 18-hole NOL tournament. We finish up with first-place Shelby at Eagle Creek to round out the league schedule.

“We have a lot of work to do, but now we have the time to prepare for a strong finish. This is the first time the NOL has conducted a two round regular season to go with the tournament. It gives the ladies a real goal to strive for. They have positioned themselves to play very meaningful matches in September and that is all I can ask for as a coach.”


Edison, Rossford finish in tie

Despite Savanna Smith’s four goals, the Lady Chargers ended up in a 5-5 with the Lady Bulldogs on Monday.

Smith received assists from Jillian Danda, Sophie Clark and Shelby Pruitt. Coley Branum scored unassited with 11 minutes remaining to tie the match.

Elizabeth Pruitt recorded eight saves in goal.

Edison will return to action on Thursday at Waite.
