It was night two of the Oak Hill boys basketball sectional Wednesday with the Northfield Norsemen taking on the host Oak Hill Golden Eagles, falling to Oak Hill 56-41, followed by the Wabash Apaches taking on the Lewis Cass Kings and falling to the Kings 89-45.
Northfield shot just 18% in the first half to dig a hole they couldn’t climb out of as they fell to Oak Hill 56-41.
The Norse jumped out to a 4-2 lead off buckets from Jared short and Heath Miller before the Golden Eagles scored 11 straight to grab a 13-4 lead. Noah Shear stopped the Oak Hill run with a free throw as the Norse trailed 15-5 after one.
Jared Short would get the first points of the second quarter but the Golden Eagles answered with a 10-1 run that put them in control 25-8 before a Tanner Wilcox bucket ended the half with the Norse trailing 25-10.
Northfield regrouped at the half and out scored oak Hill 17-15 in the third quarter. A Jared short bucket and two from Noah Shear made it 28-16, but the Norse couldn’t get the lead under 12 as they trailed 40-27 with a quarter to go.
Oak Hill would score the first 4 points of the fourth quarter and built the lead to 53-35 before a Tanner Wilcox free throw, two Jared Short free throws and a Kyle Reed bucket made it 53-41. Oak Hill would then score the final 3 points for the 56-41 final.
Leading Northfield was Jared Short with 13 points. Tanner Wilcox added 9, Heath Miller 8, Noah Shear 5, Adam Roser 3, Kyle Reed 2, Jake Schuler 1.
The Apaches made a couple runs at the Kings but it was a 28-4 run in the third by Cass that put the game away.
The game started with Cass hitting four straight three pointers to grab a 12-0 lead before the Apaches collected themselves and started to peck away. Taylor Vigar would get the Wabash scoring going followed by a Juwan Carter three point play to make it 12-5. Vigar then hit two free throws and a bucket and the Apaches had the Cass lead cut to 14-9. At 16-9 the Apaches got buckets from Marcus Jones and Kaleb Kelsheimer to get even closer at 16-14 when Cass scored 8 straight. Kelsheimer would end the quarter with a bucket as Cass led 24-16.
Wabash came out motivated in the second, getting buckets from Jones and Vigar before two Chase Dirig free throws to make it 24-22. Cass would respond with 5 straight before a Vigar bucket made it 29-23. Cass would end the quarter on a 10-1 run that opened a 39-24 halftime score.
The third quarter is one the Apaches will want to forget as Cass went crazy on the offensive end while Wabash couldn’t buy a bucket. Cass scored 23 points in the first three and a half minutes and out scored Wabash 32-6 in the quarter to lead 71-30 with a quarter to go, before going on to the 89-45 final.
