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.

Miss Valley Scoring: Bailey Johnson 12, Kya Lavy 8, Taylor Stachler 7, Sidnie Hunt 6, Leah Scholl 6
