FORT RECOVERY — Fort Recovery took command of its girls Midwest Athletic Conference basketball clash versus St. John’s Thursday night at Fort Site Fieldhouse and took complete control with a dominant third period en route to a 62-35 triumph over the Lady Blue Jays.
“We didn’t answer the bell the second half. When Fort Recovery stepped it up physically, we didn’t match it,” St. John’s mentor Dan J. Grothouse noted. “We played soft when we need to play physically; when you hit the road in the MAC, you had better be ready to do so or you get it handed to you, like we did tonight. They beat us down the floor a number of times and either we didn’t get back or we didn’t match up well and gave them easy shots.”
Fort Recovery head man Doug Bihn felt his team got back to their style.
“We were disappointed in Saturday’s game where we didn’t get the pace we wanted. We prefer to get up and down the floor,” Bihn explained. “We talked all week about pushing the tempo every chance we could and we just kept playing tonight. I felt we wore on them some as the game wore on.”
