SPARTA — The Highland Scots gave up 26 points in the first quarter on Friday when their passing went sour and their offense fell apart.
The host Scots (2-11, 2-6 MOAC) were defeated for the seventh straight time, losing to Mid-Ohio Athletic Conference rival River Valley, 61-40.
The Vikings already led, 10-9, in the middle of the opening quarter. Highland’s Katie Davies (12 points) and Addie Franklin (four points) scored and teammate Abby Garcia (15 points) landed a 3-pointer to make it close.
That was when the roof fell in for Highland.
The Vikings (6-8, 4-4 MOAC) took advantage of some fouls by the Scots.
River Valley’s leading scorer, Abby Guinther (28 points), landed four foul shots in the quarter. The Vikings were 20-for-28 from the free throw line compared to the Scots 4-for-5. Highland committed 20 fouls.
