Two of the best girls basketball teams in the area met Thursday evening in Mansfield with Shelby taking on seventh ranked Mansfield St.Peter's.  The Whippets got 25 points and ten rebounds from All-Ohioan Emma Hostetler and Shelby (10-3) went on to beat the Spartans 57-47 in a non league matchup.

One of the keys to Shelby's win was containing the Spartan's Randa Payne who was "held" to 19 points a couple of nights after scoring a school record 48 against Plymouth.  Shelby also took advantage of their good defense with transition offense which never let the 13-2 Spartans get any closer than four points and blew out to a 17 point lead in the fourth quarter.  Backing Hostetler for Shelby was Devon Murray with 16 points and Taylor Goth with eight, Taylor Fulton had five.

For St.Peter's after Payne's 19, Tiza Jones had 13, Della Hall six, Felicity Alt five.  Of note, the 19 points scored by Randa Payne gives her 1,594 points, just 87 shy of the all-time girls scoring record at St.Peter's held by Gretchen Polinski at 1,681.
