The Lancers went on to lead 30-12 at the half, but Ottoville enjoyed a 17-6 third quarter scoring advantage and trailed 36-29 entering the final period. That’s where the Big Green won the game, outscoring Lincolnview 22-11. At point point, the Lancers were ahead 46-36, but Ottoville closed the game on a 15-1 scoring run, including the final five points of the contest.
