Tri-Village KO's Twin Valley South

The Tri-Village Patriots baseball team has been able to string together 4 wins.  Their last win was an impressive one against the Twin Valley South Panthers.  The team was aggressive on the base paths and got a boatload of stolen bases.  Defensively, they bent several times and allowed runners on base.  But they only allowed a solitary run to be scored against them in an impressive 13-1 win. Christian Ricker pitched the entire game.

Wave Defense Dazzles

In a closely contested game between Greenville and Northmont, it was the Greenville defense that shined the brightest at the Reds/Skyline Showcase game.   Whether it was the outfield or the infield, the team made outstanding plays through the course of the game. As good teams tend to do, Greenville was able to capitalize on a Thunderbolt mistake to gain their margin of victory.  And pitcher Caitlin Christman held a strong Northmont team to a single run in the 2-1 win.

South Winners at Fred Durkle Invitational

For the 4th year in row South boys and girls teams win their invitational track meet. 

It was Friday the 13th on the calendar, but after a rough spring – this Friday instead brought good luck for the athletes, with temps well into the 70’s and bright sunshine.  A welcome change from the rain and snow that has plagued the area. There was a stiff breeze which gave the pole vaulters some grief, but overall it was a welcome day after the horrendous weather that teams have had to deal with this season.  The good weather brought out the fans as well, the bleachers were well filled and folks lined up along the fences for the meet.
The athletes responded to this change and there were some good performances.

Panthers Bow out of Tournament

North got an early lead thanks to Preston Jackson who scored 10 of his 23 points in the 1st quarter. But Miami Valley caught up and now North had to play catch up for the next 3 quarters.  North made a valiant run late in the 4th quarter - closing to within 3 points with about a minute left.  Dillon McCollough, who had only scored 7 points coming into the last quarter, sparked the rally. But with the Panthers pressing hard on defense, Miami Valley was able to get some easy baskets at the other end of the court and pull away for a 69 - 63 win.  Although they bowed out early, the Panthers can look back with pride on their 1st winning regular season record in many years.

Scoring: Dillon McCollough 16, Brian Stinson 8, Preston Jackson 23, Preston Lairson 4, Dylan Stinson 12.

Scoring: Ressler 4, Filbrun 6, Cable 14, McGlinch 3, Hesler 10, Conley 21

    South Stopped by Dayton Christian

    The Dayton Christian Warriors spoiled senior night for Twin Valley South in their last game of the season.  South had a tough time dealing with their full court press.  And when they got into the half court, they had problems scoring against an active Warrior zone defense. South would not get their first basket until midway through the 1st quarter when Travis Lovely scored in the paint. South was hunting for points and they found some points on their bench.  Jayden Bassler who normally plays sparingly ended being high scorer for South with 15 points on the night. But it was not enough as Dayton Christian took control of the game from the beginning buzzer and won 78-52.  

    Scoring: Ryan Bassler 3, Jayden Bassler 15, Nathan Osborn 7, Jacob Wells 4, Willie Bowman 9, Cole Peterson 2, Travis Lovely 10.  Dayton Christian: JT Thornhill 10, Anton Webb 14, Shawn Vangy 6, Ryan Fair 2, Matt Welken 40, Seth Griswold 3, Lane Swana 3.

    Blackhawks End Regular Season With Loss to Panthers

    Before the game Twin Valley South honored their 3 seniors before the game began.  Oftentimes teams will also honor the visiting teams seniors as well – but Mississinawa Valley has no seniors on their squad.  And that was a big part of the difference in the game as a more experienced Twin Valley South team held off an early charge by the Blackhawks and made a charge of their own in the 2nd half for a 58-39 win.

    TV South Scoring: Kelsie Shafer 19, Mylan Crews 17, Taylor Bowers 8, Madison Johnson 5, Abby Bingham 4, Alexis Bennett 3, McKenzie Neal 2.

    Arcanum Pushes Past Panthers

    Both Twin Valley South and Arcanum entered their conference matchup with 3 game winning streaks.  And South has been formidable on their home court this winter, which made the Trojans task doubly hard.  Something had to give on Friday night.    It was a close fought game for 3 quarters.  But the Trojans were able to manage a decisive 4th quarter push to keep their streak alive.   A defensive change and on offense shooting well enough from the foul line combined to give Arcanum their 4th win a row 66-52.

    Jets Fall to Panthers in Overtime

    The 2nd place Franklin Monroe Jets had to begin their weekend with an away game at Twin Valley South – a team that always dangerous under the coaching of Tony Augspurger.  The JV game was presage of what was to come in the varsity game, a close contest with many lead changes and the outcome decided in overtime by a narrow margin.  Fans definitely got their moneys worth in this closely fought CCC contest. The teams would tie at 51 in regulation and in overtime Ryan Bassler gave the Panthers the lead with a trey at the 6 second mark.  The Jets got the ball into the hands of Bryce Filbrun in the last seconds, but Willie Bowman, who was also scored a game high 30 points, swatted the shot away to preserve the 61-60 victory.

    Franklin Monroe: Ressler 8, Fibrun 12, Rhoades 2, Cable 15, Hesler 14, Conley 9.
    TVS: R. Bassler 8, Cottingim 3, Osborn 2, Wells 8, Bowman 30, Lovely 10

    Bradford Mistakes Costly Against Brookville

    It was senior night at Brookville High School, so a robust hometown crowd was on hand.  Maybe it was the noise level or maybe it was the 1st game of the week on the road, but Bradford was consistently cold shooting from the floor.  And offensively they also had problems holding onto the ball – allowing 25 turnovers on the night.  Despite all this they kept pace with Brookville until the last quarter when Bradford allowed the Blue Devils to go on an 8-1 run to break the game open for a 33-21 win.

    Scoring: Skip Miller 16, Hannah Fout 3, Emma Canan 2.
    Leading rebounders: Skip Miller 12,  Bianca Keener 9.  Assists: Skip Miller 2
