BARBERTON — Don’t mess with the Christmas socks.
The Cloverleaf girls basketball team found its lucky charm Saturday and used the mojo to beat Coventry 50-44 and win the Lady Magics Holiday Classic.
All 10 players for the Colts (4-5), who won the event for the second straight year, wore different holiday-themed socks. They ranged in colors from black, blue, red and green, some were striped and many featured cartoons of snowmen or Santa Claus.
Sophomore Lauren Gokey had a big game against the Comets (4-5) with eight points 12 rebounds, two assists and three steals, while junior Jessie Lindemeyer added a team-high nine points, three rebounds and three assists.
Emily Civittolo (8 points) joined Gokey on the all-tournament team.
