Yellow Springs 48
The fifth game of the evening was a really great contest between the Middletown Fenwick Falcons and the Waynesville Warriors. This game was back and forth for 32 minutes. No lead was bigger than seven and there were several ties and lead changes. At the beginning of the fourth the Falcons pushed the lead to seven and forced a timeout by Waynesville. The rest of the quarter the Falcons held off the Warriors. The final two minutes the Warriors made 7 of 9 from the line and sealed the victory. They advance to play Cincinnati Reading who knocked off North College Hill Friday night.
The game everyone seemed to be looking forward to was the Versailles/East Clinton matchup. The Versailles Tigers breezed through their first two games and, with the loss of North College Hill to Cincinnati Reading the previous evening, everyone has seemed to take note of who will step up for a title run in Division III.
The first quarter started fast for the Tigers as they jumped out to a 27-10 lead by the end of the first frame. Senior guard Kyle Gehle hit 4 three pointers in the frame to set the tone. After that the Tigers cruised to an easy win. They led 42-18 at the half and by the time the fourth quarter was set to start, Coach McEldowney had pulled most of his starters.
The Tigers looked exceptionally good on fast break opportunities. At least twice during the game, a great outlet pass was followed by the coach's favorite kind of fast break: the one's where the ball never hits the floor. The Tigers are playing very good ball right now and have momentum on their side.
Gehle finished with 26 points, 5 rebounds, and 4
assists. Joe Shardo finished with 13 points, 9 rebounds and 2
assist. Shardo, a 6'4" post player, even managed to work in a three
pointer. The Tigers advance and
will play Greeneview Thursday evening at
