Bethlehem No. 2 (25-8) took sole possession of first place with its three-game sweep of Zion Luckey (22-11). Bethlehem No. 2 scored a league evening-best 23 runs. ZL’s 11 runs were its second-lowest total of the season.

Bethlehem No. 2 extended its winning streak to a league high 14 games. Bethlehem No. 2 and ZL will conclude the season with a three-game set in Luckey. ZL had not been swept since losing three one-run games at Bowling Green Trinity United Methodist on Nov. 26, 2007. 

Stony Ridge (24-9), which entered play Monday with a share of first, dropped to second place despite winning twice. SR trails first-place Bethlehem No. 2 by one game, and now holds a two-game advantage over ZL. Pemberville Methodist (20-13) and BGTUM (20-13) are the other league teams to have won 20 games through the midway point of the season.




The Toledo Walleye welcomed Olympic Hero and former Toledo Goaldigger Mike Eruzione for his first visit to the new Lucas County Arena downtown. The appearance comes nearly 30 years after Eruzione helped Team USA win the gold medal at the Winter Olympics in Lake Placid, N.Y. and over 7,000 fans warmly welcomed his arrival. In this photo, East Toledo resident R.J. St. John, son of season ticket holder Ray St. John, is at the Walleye game celebrating his birthday alongside Eruzione. R.J. is wearing a Toledo Goaldigger jersey (signed by Eruzione in 2005) that Mike Greeder gave to him at the Goaldigger’s 25-year anniversary game at the Toledo Sports Arena in 2005. The Walleye defeated Elmira that night, 5-1.


Ohio Northern University 5-foot-10 junior forward Brittany Bogart (Northwood) led the team with a career-high 16 points and a season-high five rebounds in 23 minutes of action off the bench, but the Polar Bears lost to the No. 25 ranked Capital Crusaders 62-55.

Bogart was 6-of-9 from the field and was a perfect 4-of-4 from the free throw line. This was Bogart's highest point total since scoring 11 points against Marietta on January 26, 2008.

The Polar Bears did not score against the nationally ranked Crusaders for nearly the first eight minutes of the game. It was Bogart who broke the ice, converting a layup at the 12:09 mark to cut the deficit to 11-2 in favor of Capital.

Northern continued to plug away and eventually tied the game at 43-43 with just over seven minutes to go. Capital would score the next four points, but Bogart would respond with a layup and two free throws to tie the score at 47-47 at the 5:27 mark.
