TIPP CITY — Sidney’s struggles continued Wednesday night in girls basketball action at Tipp City, where the Lady Jackets lost by 30 points, 56-26.

The setback left Sidney at 1-3 on the season and 1-2 in the Greater Western Ohio Conference American North with Troy coming to town for another North game on Saturday.

It was the second game in a row where the Lady Jackets did not get out of the 20s, coming on the heels of a 51-20 loss to Centerville.

The second quarter was the key Wednesday. Sidney trailed 9-8 after a quarter, then took a 10-9 lead with two free throw to start the second period. But at that point, the Lady Red Devils went on a 17-1 run and opened up a 32-14 bulge at the half, which the Lady Jackets could not recover from. Sidney did not have a field goal in the second quarter.

Sidney ‘s 6-foot-2 senior post player Celena Taborn was all the offense the Lady Jackets could muster. She had 19 of the team’s 26 points, with no one else having more than three. Taborn had just four free throws, but went to the line 14 times and dropped in 10.

“Celena did a good job considering she was double- and triple-teamed,” said Sidney coach Megan Mummey. “We have to find other players to take some of the pressure off her. And we turned the ball over too much against their pressure.”

Sidney (26) — Dean 2, Miller 3, Powers 2, Taborn 19.

Tipp City (56) — Proll 2, Aselage 9, Hinkle 2, Stewart 15, Clodfelter 2, Varvel 4, Mader 18, Schretzman 6.

Score by quarters:

Sidney`8`14`20`26

Tipp`9`32`52`58

Three-pointers: Tipp 6 (Stewart 3, Mader, Aselage); Sidney 1 (Taborn)

Records: Sidney 1-2, Tipp 2-1.
