WESTERVILLE — The Centerburg Trojans keep on rolling.
For the third straight game, Centerburg was unchallenged in postseason play, putting up a 68-28 victory over an overmatched Northridge team in Tuesday’s district semifinal game at Worthington Christian Middle School.
It was a defensive run that put the game out of reach for the Trojans (19-4). Hot shooting in the second half carried them the rest of the way.
Northridge was held scoreless over a 12 1/2 minute stretch, starting late in the first period and carrying to almost the midway point in the third. The Vikings (7-15) went 0-for-13 in that stretch from the field, turning the ball over 11 times in the process.
By the time Northridge’s Sara Pribonic hit a layup to end the drought, Centerburg was ahead, 33-13.
The Trojans teed off from that point on, scoring from all over the court. At one point, Centerburg was 15-for-25 (60 percent) in the second half.
As is typical for Centerburg, no single player stood out in scoring. Claire Harvey and Lindsey Daniels led the way with 10 points apiece. Breanna Campbell had eight, and Stacy Fielding added seven.
But it was Carly Compton who came through on both sides of the ball.
Compton had six rebounds and six steals in the first half alone. Four of her rebounds were on the offensive side, and three of her steals were converted into breakaway buckets.
