Holgate Tigers Throw A Wet Blanket On Fayette Eagles' Homecoming Party
FAYETTE: January 18, 2014 - The Fayette Eagles celebrated Homecoming on January 18 with the customary clash against the Holgate Tigers. The annual battle between the Purple and Gold people has become a pressure-packed tilt that is worth more than the price of admission. This year was no exception as the Tigers got out to an early lead, then had to fight tooth and nail to maintain it against a determined Eagles squad. The rally of the hometown boys was cut short by the clock though, as Holgate escaped with a 51-46 win. Jerad Seiler led Fayette with 14 points. Chandler Sanford and Tyler Cox each had 10 points, Skylar Lantz and Tristen Bates had 4 points apiece, and Grant Schaffner and Koby Biddix each had a deuce.

Huge Fourth Quarter Lifts The Bombers To A Win Over Montpelier
EDON: January 18, 2014 - Records can say a lot...and sometimes they say a lot of wrong. Just because they have won only once this season does not mean that the Montpelier Locomotives are pushovers. The Edon Bombers found out first hand on January 18. Edon opened with an early lead, and expanded the advantage slowly as the game progressed. For three quarters though, the Boys in Bomber Blue were unable to get the large Locomotive image out of their rearview mirror...until the fourth period. In the final frame, the hometown boys went off on a 19-6 run to finally dispatch their upset-minded visitors, giving the denizens of The Hangar a happy ride home after a 57-41 win. Jake Brown led all scorers with 23 points for the Bombers, with Brock Thiel adding 11 points and Kaden Sapp 10. Mike Peeples landed 6 points, Wyatt Walkowski posted 4 points, and River Wicker had 3.

TOUGH ORDER TO FILL ... Dylan Hutchison of North Central has his hands full trying to prevent a determined Parker Ruffer of Stryker from getting into the interior. STRYKER: January 17, 2014 - The Stryker Panthers welcomed the North Central Eagles into The Cage for a BBC tussle on the evening of January 17. The Panthers, one game back in the BBC standings behind 5-0 Pettisville, had distinct size advantages over the 1-10 Eagles, but the hometown boys needed a fourth quarter burst from Parker Ruffer and Dean Beamont to finally put away North Central by a 57-45 score The Panthers came out of the offensive gate somewhat cautiously against North Central in the early going. Unable to connect from mid to long range, they began to pound the ball inside to Ruffer and forward Tanner Clingaman, but even they were having trouble connecting. North Central was experiencing a near blackout of their own, battling through the trapping press of the Panthers, only to miss layups and jump shots with clear looks. The first period ended with Stryker up 7-4. Although both teams found their offensive engines in the second period, the key to the game was found in Ruffer, who took over the game with his shooting ability. Ruffer was well guarded by the Eagles'

Chase Legacy, but when the North Central big man went to the sidelines, there was nobody big enough to get in the grille of the big Panther, and he promptly went to town. Ruffer hit for a game-high 29, but the Eagles found other ways in which to keep the Panthers off balance. With time expiring in the third, a Ruffer trifecta gave Stryker a 36-33 lead going into the fourth. The Eagles opened the fourth with a three bomb from Clayton Ferguson to tie the game again, but there was simply too much Ruffer for which the Eagles could not fully answer. Free throws from Ruffer, Beamont and Clingaman expanded the lead to its 57-35 conclusion. Clingaman posted 11 points to back Ruffer, with Beamont adding 8, Chad Ruffer 7, and Austin Grisier 2. Legacy led the Eagles with 14 points, while Ferguson had 11, and Branden Turner 10.

Rogers canned the last two baskets and a foul shot of the half to take a 10 point lead of 31-21 into the locker room. Rogers, with the help of two quick buckets by sophomore Akienreh Johnson opened the third quarter lead up to 37-21 just seconds into the second half. A Richer basket was followed by a Rogers’ three as the Rams opened up a 17 point lead at 40-23. The remainder of the quarter was played even with the Rams scoring 12 points to Wauseon’s nine. During the Indians draught during the middle of the second quarter to midway through the third quarter, they were not able to fight the height of the Rams line up. At one point on the floor the Rams had four ladies at six feet tall or taller. Three of the girls stood six feet two inches tall. It was very obvious and noticeable close to the basket. Althought despite, the advantage, Anna Marshall and Sally Frank were aggressive and certainly played their hearts out against the extreme height disadvantage and hats off to them both. The Indians were down 52-34 as the final quarter started. They just could not close the gap that the state ranked team had established. Wauseon did score the last six points of the game. A put-back by Sally Frank was followed by foul shots from Maddie Richer and Anna Marshall. Johnson led Rogers with 16 points while Sariah Yackee scored 12 for the Indians. The Indians returned to action Tuesday when they travelled to Fairview to take on the Apaches.
