Benjamin Logan’s girls basketball team fell behind 30-11 at halftime and was unable to recover in a 51-43 loss at Greenon on Monday in Central Buckeye Conference Mad River division play.

The Raiders are now 0-2 overall and 0-1 in league action.

“It was pretty much the same scenario as (Saturday’s loss to North Union,” said Ben Logan coach Donnie Sosby. “We turned the ball over numerous times in the first half and got into foul trouble.”

Ben Logan outscored the Knights 15-7 in the third quarter to cut its deficit to 11 points (37-26).

The Raiders continued to pull closer in the final period, climbing to within four points with around two minutes remaining. However, Ben Logan could not finish off the comeback.

“Our defense was a lot better in the second half,” said Sosby. “We played with a lot more energy and intensity.”

Jessica Yoder paced the Raiders with 17 points, while Domonique Johnson had 14 points.

Carli Henman added seven points for Ben Logan.

“Carli Henman came off the bench and played a great game for us,” said Sosby. “It was probably the best game of her high school career.”

In the junior varsity game, Ben Logan won 41-29. Darion Bricker led the Raiders with 11 points.

Ben Logan returns to action Wednesday at Kenton.
