VANDALIA — Trying to pick up its first tournament win in 18 years, the 10th-seeded Piqua girls basketball team got off to a good start but couldn’t hold on Saturday in a 47-27 loss to No. 7 Miamisburg to open the Division I sectional tournament at Butler High School.

Piqua led 6-0 early and held Miamisburg — which was looking for its first tournament win since the 2012-13 season — without a field goal until the first quarter buzzer.

But Miamisburg took a 21-13 halftime lead and stretched it to 30-18 after three quarters.

Piqua got as close as eight in the fourth quarter, but the Vikings pulled away.

Miamisburg improved to 11-12 with the win, while Piqua closed the season at 15-8.
