BVC Girls Basketball: Leipsic rallies to top McComb

MCOMB — Leipsic’s bus may have pulled up in front of McComb High School right on time. But the Vikings’ girls varsity basketball team showed up a bit late.
Leipsic scored just six points in the second quarter and trailed McComb 22-15 at the half of Thursday’s Blanchard Valley Conference matchup. It was a whole different team that sprinted out the halftime locker room, however, a team that poured in 28 points in the third quarter, dominated the second half and came away with a 58-41 victory in the final league game of the season.
Amber Gerdeman and Haley Gerten scored 19 points each and Shaylynn Morman added 11 as Leipsic improved to 17-3 overall, 8-1 in the league and finished second in the final BVC standings. Gerten was 9-for-10 from the line and Gerdeman pulled down 11 rebounds to complete her double-double.
Emily Clymer scored 11 points and Brenna Dee 10 for McComb (11-9, 4-5 BVC).
