PADEN CITY — Hannah Loy single-handedly outscored the entire Hundred offense and Paden City recorded a 46-21 victory on its home court on Monday night.

Loy finished with 25 points in the victory, four more points than her opponent and the Wildcats (2-4) did not allow a point in the fourth quarter en route to victory.

Ashlyn Moses chipped in with eight points in the win.

“Hannah (Loy) shot the ball well and (Monday) was the most roughest and toughest that I have seen Moses this year so we can take some positives away from this game,” Paden City coach Alan Miller said. “We haven’t had many positives this year so we have to feed off this game a little bit.”

Even with a tough loss, Hundred coach Steve Dakan is also focusing on the positives that he saw on the floor.

“Everybody got to play so we are getting experience for these younger players coming up,” Dakan said. “We always hustle on and off the court so we are coming along.”

The Wildcats stormed out of the locker room and put up the first 11 points of the game to take charge early as Loy collected the first seven points of the game.

Hundred (0-4) got its first basket around the three-minute mark of the first quarter on a Katherine Henderson bucket.

Paden City led 14-6 after the first, sparked by Loy’s eight points.

Hundred kept the deficit at eight throughout the second quarter to stay within striking distance at halftime.

However, Paden City put an end to any chance of a Hornets comeback early in the third as the Wildcats reeled off a 9-0 run to begin the second half, taking a 29-12 edge with 4:55 left in the third.

Hundred’s first points of the second half came at the 4:40 mark when Hailey Eastham dropped in a basket but the Hornets still trailed 37-21 heading to the fourth quarter.

Loy had eight points in the third, while Moses added six for Paden City, while Hundred’s Madeline Goff also provided six points in the third.

The Wildcats outscored Hundred 9-0 in the final frame as Loy garnered the first six points of the stanza and Skylar Faulks banked in a trey with 40 seconds left to deliver the dagger.

Paige Leonard and Chelsea Baker each tallied four points for Paden City in the win.

Goff was Hundred’s top point-getter with eight, while Eastham finished with five.

Hundred treks to East Richland tonight at 6 p.m., while Paden City visits Valley on Thursday, December 29 at 6 p.m.

“We have Valley next and we will see if we are getting better because that will be our big test,” Miller said. “We work on fundamentals every practice and these girls work really hard and they really want to win.”
