Second-half mistakes sting Raiders in loss

Youth and injuries have prevented Benjamin Logan’s girls basketball team from finding its way this season. Wednesday’s loss to Northwestern was a microcosm of the Raiders’ struggle for consistency.

The host Raiders played a solid first half before coming apart in the second half of a 44-31 defeat.

“Turnovers really hurt us in the second half,” said Ben Logan head coach Donnie Sosby, who saw his team drop its ninth straight game. “In the fourth quarter, we hit a wall physically, emotionally and mentally. I think fatigue set in a little bit, too.”

Ben Logan drops to 5-13 overall and 2-6 in the Central Buckeye Conference Mad River division.

“I thought the effort was good, especially with what we’ve had to deal with the last 10 days or so,” said Sosby. “The girls are doing some good things, but we just can’t put four good quarters together right now.”
