The Lady Wildcats and the Lady Pioneers painted an ugly picture.
But a win’s a win and the Logan High School girls’ were glad to get it as the Lady Wildcats topped Wayne, 38-28, at Logan’s Willie Akers Arena.
The Lady Cats notched their first win of the season, improving to 1-4. Wayne dropped to 2-3.
Logan went just 4-18 last year and Lady Cats’ coach Tim Cunningham said a win of any kind is be a big boost to the team.
“It wasn’t a work of art but we’re glad to get a win,” Cunningham said. “It gets the monkey off our backs.”
Jessica Bias led Logan with 13 points in the game.
Erica Kelley nailed three 3-pointers and had 10.
Brianna Johnson added nine, Jenna Kimbler four and Emily Vinson two.
Kristen Stiltner led Wayne with 15 points.
Tasha Maynard had six, while Sam Queen, Erica Kitchen and Paige Kelly all had two points each.
After a 7-7 tie at the end of the first quarter, Logan outscored the Pioneers 12-3 in the second to take a 19-10 halftime lead.
Logan then held a 30-21 advantage after three and led by as many as 12 points in the fourth quarter.
Down by double digits late in the fourth, Wayne stayed in a zone defense. That enabled Logan to spread the floor and burn the rest of the clock.
“I thought they would come out in the man-to-man but they surprisingly stayed in the zone. We just stayed back and ran out the clock,” Cunningham said.
LHS returns to action Tuesday at home against Tolsia. Game time is set for 7 p.m.
