Walking out of a timeout with 22 seconds remaining and a tied game, the Ravens look to Junior Guard Avery Robinson with a basket with 13 seconds remaining and a last-second turnover by the Devils in the key allows Ravenna to walk away with a key non-conference win against the deceptively-talented Tallmadge Blue Devils 59-57. The Tallmadge Trio of Lizzie Bickar (20), Jordan Severns (14) and Gotto (17) accounted for 51 of the Blue Devils’ 57 points, and the Ravens Trio of Lauren Calhoun (20), Robinson (14) and Emily Ervin (10) accounted for 44 of the Ravens’ 59 points. Neither Tallmadge nor Ravenna could build a large lead, Tallmadge’s largest was 9 in the third, the Ravens’ was 5 in the fourth, even though Tallmadge held the lead for the first 23 minutes of the contest. 4-10 doesn’t describe the Blue Devils, who hold wins over Suburban League National foes Roosevelt and Copley, 6-6 Hudson and 9-5 Streetsboro. The Ravens advance their record to 10-3 and will play Wednesday at home versus Woodridge to start the second half of the Portage Trail Conference regular season.
