Flames’ run ends at regional
By Gregg Rettig
PICKERINGTON — Few expected this kind of outstanding season given the Shekinah Christian girls basketball team’s youth.
The Flames advanced all the way to a Division IV regional final game Saturday before losing, 53-43, to an extremely athletic Mansfield St. Peter’s team.
The Flames, who ended their season 20-5, have just one senior on this year’s roster — Rachel Lawrence.
On Saturday night, the Flames held a 14-12 advantage after the first quarter, but nine second-quarter turnovers turned the tide.
Shekinah Christian trailed, 29-23, at the intermission as the Spartans scored the frame’s last 10 points.
