Plagued by that fatal basketball combination of turnovers and cold shooting, Medina dropped a 46-32 decision to visiting Nardin Academy this evening in a non league girls contest.

Leading by a narrow 9-8 margin at the end of the first quarter, Nardin used a turnover aided 13-5 second period scoring edge to open up a 22-13 half-time advantage.

Medina did rally back to within five, 27-22, midway through the third period after a steal and layup and a three-point play by Kharise Johnson and layups by Camri King and Maddie Williams but the Mustangs could get no closer.

Nardin answered with an 11-4 run to close the period capped off by a three by Ainsley Boras at the buzzer to regain a 12 point, 38-26, advatange at the there-quarter mark.

A three point play by King did pull Medina back to within nine, 38-29, at the outset of the final period but that was as close as the Mustangs would get.

Lindsay Karas took game high scoring honors with 14 for Nardin as Bridgett Ulrich added 8 and Boras and Jenna Locke 7.

Williams scored 10, King 9, Johnson 8 and Je’ne Brown 5 for Medina which slips to 1-2.

In one other girls game played Wednesday Alexander roared out to a 24-5 half-time advantage in route to posting a 43-19 Genesee Region League win over Holley.
