Harrison girls stun No. 1 Mason

Comets' streak for league wins ends at 105 games

The Cincinnati Enquirer

        Mason, the No.1 team in The Enquirer's Division I girls coaches poll, had its Fort Ancient Valley Conference win streak snapped at 105 games with a 50-47 loss to Harrison on Saturday.

        The Comets' last league loss was to Springboro, now in the MML, during December of 1993.

        “It's pretty big,” first-year Harrison coach Stuart Scrivner said of the Senior Night upset. “I believe we're a pretty good team. We told the girls before the season started that we've got to find ways to win the big ones. Our goal this year was to win one big one to get over the hump.”

        Harrison senior guards Lisa Holderer and Kristen Davis each hit 3-pointers to spark a 19-0 run that wiped out Mason's 37-25 lead going into the fourth quarter.

        Mason fought back, but Holderer hit a 3-pointer with 33 seconds left to give the Wildcats the lead for good. She followed up with a free throw for the final margin.

        “Our goal was to keep it under 10 going into the fourth quarter,” Scrivner said. “The girls believed it was over, but we told them that we just have to chip away.”

        The Wildcats, who lost 51-22 at Mason earlier this season, opened the game with a 10-0 run.

        Junior center April Lux recorded a double-double with a team-high 13 points and 12 rebounds for the Wildcats.

        Mason senior Michelle Munoz led all scorers with 31 points.

        MASON (47) — Stein 2 0 6, Minnich 4 1 10, Munoz 14 3 31. Totals: 20 4 47.

        HARRISON (50) — Walton 1 0 2, Santillo 1 0 3, Brooks 1 0 3, Holderer 2 2 8, Daily 2 1 6, Toney 2 4 8, Lux 6 1 13, Ransick 3 1 7. Totals: 18 9 50.

        Mason ....... 11  11  15  10—47

        Harrison ....... 10  11   4  25—50


3-pointers: M — Stein 2, Minnich. H — Holderer 2, Daily, Santillo, Brooks. Records: M 13-5 (12-1 FAVC Buckeye), H 12-6 (10-3 FAVC Buckeye).
