VANDALIA — Sidney again dominated second-half play in coming away with a 50-40 victory over Vandalia in Greater Western Ohio Conference North Division girls basketball action Saturday at Vandalia.

The win kept the Lady Jackets unbeaten on the year at 18-0, including 6-0 in the GWOC North. They have four regular-season games remaining, all of them in North play, starting with Wednesday at Piqua.

Sidney trailed by three after a quarter at 13-10, and was up just one at the half. But the Lady Jackets came out of the lockerroom and outscored the Lady Aviators 14-3 in the third quarter to take control of the game.

“We expected a game from Vandalia since they were only two games back in the North” said Sidney coach Megan Mummey. “They were able to hang around in the first half because of our shooting. Kaitlyn Davis was the only one to hit threes for us. The rest of the baskets came from ofensive rebounds and putbacks.

“We tried three different defenses in the first half and nothing seeming to be working,” she added. “After halftime, it seemed like we woke up and played much bettert on the defensive end. Carrie Nuss knocked down two shots and that gave us the spark wed needed.”

Sidney’s inside duo of Sylvia Hudson and Celena Taborn proved too much for Vandalia. Hudson had 18 and Taborn 14. Judson finished with a double-double, also pulling down 10 rebounds. Taborn added seven rebounds.

Hudson’s 18 points upped her career total to 1,397, just 346 away from breaking the career scoring record at Sidney.
