BEAVERCREEK — Carroll’s patience was outdone by Beavercreek’s urgency Monday in a 47-31 non-league win for the Beavers at home.

Beavercreek (9-4) was led by 17 points from Charlotte Paulding, who made nearly half of her team’s field goals. Lilli Leopard added 11 and Live Walther had nine.

Carroll refused to settle for any shot that wasn’t within 10 feet of the basket, using penetrating dribble drives and lob entry passes to get the ball near the block underneath the basket as often as possible.

The Patriots only had four attempts from three and didn’t connect on any of them.

Kiera Healy got the ball early and often on her way to a team leading 13 points for Carroll. Eva Snyder, Ellie Meyer and Lyla Oliver all ended up with four in support of her.

Carroll (6-8) scored the game’s first four points before Beavercreek went on a 7-0 run to take hold the lead they wouldn’t relinquish. The Beavers steadily built up its lead the remainder of the game, but wasn’t able to extend it to double digits until early in the fourth quarter.

Beavercreek’s defense had its best success in forcing a turnover before Carroll’s offense could get set up in the half court, but fell victim to the ball movement set up by focusing on Oliver at the point on numerous occasions.

Offensive rebounding was key for Beavercreek as they also struggled from three, going 3-for-23, but were able to keep possessions alive to get second chance opportunities.

Carroll next hosts McNicholas on Wednesday as they look for their first league win, while Beavercreek will next head to Springfield.
