Stow 54, Mentor 48

Stow senior Theresa Parr scored seven of her game-high 21 points down the stretch to help the Bulldogs get a road victory and secure coach Bob Podges his 300th career win.

Podges has earned all 300 wins while at Stow for 19 years.

“This win was very special, especially with this group of kids that work hard and play with a lot of heart and desire,” Podges said of the milestone.

The Bulldogs (16-2) led most of the game before the Cardinals fought back to tie the score at 40 with 4:30 remaining.

Parr then took control, scoring the next seven points on three consecutive possessions to give Stow the lead for good.

Stow junior Emily Andrassy added 16 points and Lizzy Stefanov chipped in 14.

Mentor (6-12) was paced by Teagan Ochaya’s 18-point effort.

Ellet 36, Kenmore-Garfield 33

Alyssa Martin scored a season-high 20 points and recorded her second double-double of the season to help the Orangemen hold on for a City Series road win.

Martin’s lay-in with 1:06 remaining tied the score before teammate Riley Kline scored the game-winner with 35 seconds to play. Kline also made a free throw with 10 seconds left to seal the victory.

Kenmore-Garfield senior Selah Richardson hit three 3-pointers on her way to a team-high 15 points.

Perry 44, Norton 41

After jumping out to an 18-9 lead after the first quarter, Norton struggled to score the rest of the way and missed a wide-open 3-point attempt at the buzzer in a nonconference matchup.

Bryana Housley scored 15 points and Kelsey Hosey had 12 but Norton could not overcome Perry or Riley Pireu, who had a game-high 20.
