Wauseon Girls Cruise into Districts with Win Over Evergreen
The DIII Sectional Championship game between the Lady Vikings of Evergreen and the Lady Indians of Wauseon, held at Lake High School, was close for first four minutes of the first quarter. But the scoring duo of Wauseon’s Marissa Seiler and Haley Meyer began to dominate inside on the offensive end. And, when those opportunities were not there, Indian guards Ellie Rodriguez and Kaden Carroll hit from long range and the game quickly became no contest as Wauseon defeated the Vikings 63-33 to advance to the District Tournament.
Seiler and Meyer each scored 10 points in the first half and Rodriquez and Carroll drained two triples apiece as Wauseon opened leads of 18-10 in the first quarter and 34-15 at halftime. Seiler added 10 more points and Meyer another six as the advantage ballooned to an unsurmountable 52-25 after three quarters.
Evergreen’s Bekah Bowser scored 11 points in the second half, nine of which came on three-pointers, but it was not enough to keep the Vikings from falling further back until the margin reached 30 points.
Seiler finished with a game-high 23 points for Wauseon. Meyer scored 16 points, Rodriguez added eight, Carroll and Autumn Pelok had seven each and Kaylin Ersham had two.
Bowser led Evergreen with 15 points. Addison Ricker scored nine points, Lucy Serna had four, Jessica Riggs and Jocelyn Schuster added two apiece.
