MOUNT VERNON — Heading into Friday’s contest, the Mount Vernon girls basketball team knew it had to attempt to shut down the powerful one-two punch of the Big Walnut Eagles.

Skylar Fleak and McKenna Hammond have been a two-girl wrecking crew for the Eagles all year long. Friday night, they got some points, but they weren’t quite a dominant force as the Yellow Jackets threw a defensive blanket over them. That defensive effort helped spark the Jackets to a 47-34 victory in Ohio Capital Conference action.
