After scoring five runs in ninth inning for a win Friday night, the Bobcats used another lopsided inning on Saturday

Game One

Ohio struck first and never really let up the pressure Friday, as it took the first game of a doubleheader at Bowling Green, 7-2.

Amanda Dalton, coach of the Nelsonville-York Lady Buckeyes basketball team, announced that she is stepping down from her position after being accepted into the Principal Preparation Program, according to the Athens Messenger.

She informed the team of her decision on Wednesday.

With Dayton runners on first and third and two outs in the top of the fourth, Ohio coach Jodi Hermanek called her team into the pitching circle and brought Lauren McClary in to pitch for Sydney Compston after Compston had given up two runs.

In a rubber match with the Bowling Green Falcons, all things went wrong for the Ohio Bobcats in an 11-1 loss on Sunday.

Freshman righty Zac Carey confounded Ohio hitters through eight innings of the Falcons’ blowout victory that kept Ohio (19-14, 6-6) from reaching 20 wins.

It only seems fitting that Ohio’s seniors, a rather accomplished group, led the Bobcats (10-19, 5-13) to a 95-65 victory over Miami (13-18, 8-10) on senior night in the Convo on Friday.

Friday's game followed a similar narrative to many of Ohio's losses this season. An early deficit, a few pitching errors and a lack of offensive production ultimately saw the Bobcats drop their sixth-straight game in an 11-0 loss to Texas.

Kiyanna Black and Mariah Byard hit back to back 3-pointers for the Bobcats to start the second half en route to a blowout victory over Kent St. 69-56. The Bobcats continue their winning ways and are now 24-4 and 15-2 in the Mid-American Conference.

Some late drama in the last two innings could not prevent the Bobcats from losing to UNC Greensboro, 8-5, for their fifth-straight loss. 

The game looked like many of Ohio’s this season: an early deficit, a myriad of pitching changes, a couple hits and some early season jitters. 

The Trimble Tomcats claimed the Div. IV Sectional title Tuesday for the second year in a row as they cruised by South Webster, 76-44. With the win, the Tomcats’ unbeaten streak extends to 23-0.

The Ohio Bobcats and Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets were so evenly matched on Tuesday that it took 12 innings and a walk-off throwing error for the Yellow Jackets to earn a 7-6 win. 

There was no last-second dunk this time around when the Bobcats took on the Buffalo Bull. Maurice Ndour, last matchup’s hero still poured in a game-high 25 points, but he couldn’t carry the Bobcats as they fell 93-66 to Buffalo Tuesday night.

Finding a starting pitcher to replace Savannah Jo Dorsey has been a huge problem for Ohio this season and the team's struggles continued Tuesday as it fell 12-1 to Western Carolina in six innings.

Dr. Seuss once said, "Oh the places you will go." He may not have known it, but he was referring to the Nelsonville York Lady Buckeyes.  

Ohio’s starting pitcher Evan Geist had a no-hit the Georgia State Panthers through five innings on Sunday, but the home team finally got to the lefthander in the sixth inning for three runs to give the Panthers a 3-1 win and a sweep of the visiting Bobcats.
