Warren stymies Fairview late

FAIRVIEW — Warren outscored previously undefeated Fairview, 16-1, in the fourth quarter to rally for a 36-28 nonleague girls basketball win Thursday.

Junior Riley Childress scored seven of her 10 points in the final eight minutes while Sammie Ruhlman added five points, including a 3-pointer, as the Dragons (5-1, 1-1 Region 6) eliminated a seven-point deficit.

Junior Emma Ruhlman led Warren with 15 points — 11 in the second half — to go along with 10 rebounds.

“The two of them knew it was time to go,” Warren head coach Lisa LaVan said of Emma Ruhlman and Childress. “They wore down their defenders. They both dealt with face guards and double teams all night.”

Fairview led 11-1 after the first quarter and 15-12 at halftime.

“We were stagnant to start,” LaVan said. “They had a nice game plan and did a nice job with it. Each game that goes by, each team knows a little bit more about each other.”

Abby McCall led the Tigers (4-1, 2-0 Region 3) with 6 points.

The Dragons return to action Saturday with a home Region 6 game against Corry. Tip-off is slated for approximately 7:15 p.m.

“I give this team credit, they are a player-led team,” LaVan said of her girls. “I don’t have to say much. … They know what’s expected of them. They did a great job of cranking up the defense and realizing it was go time.”
