Meridian Has Tough Night

It was one of those nights where Meridian struggled to score.
The result was the Lady Mustangs falling to the Lady Hawks, 54-41 in Class D2-2 Girls Subdistrict semifinal play Feb. 16 at Centennial High School in Utica.
Meridian Lady Mustangs head coach Robert Schropfer felt early in the game when Hampton built a sizeable lead it wasn’t anything special with what the Lady Hawks did.
“It wasn’t so much what Hampton did, as it was we just struggled to score. The girls had some decent shots at the basket, but they just wouldn’t go down,”replied Schropfer.
For the game, Meridian hit 17-55 attempts for 31 percent, but were 0-10 on its three-point shot attempts.
Coach Schropfer felt sorry for his lone senior Bridgette Jackson having her high school basketball career come to an end with the semifinal subdistrict loss.

Griffins Top Trojans

Sometimes a small thing can make a huge difference.
A double-digit scoring spree in a three minute span late in the second quarter by fourth seed Diller-Odell proved the difference in Monday’s 61-54 win by the Griffins over fifth seed Tri County in the D1-1 Boys Subdistrict Basketball game played at Freeman High School.
Both teams played a competitive first quarter with Tri County maintaining a 13-12 lead after eight minutes of action.
Tri County Trojans head coach Cory Jensen knew what he was going to see facing Diller-Odell, as two teams had faced each other earlier in the regular season.

Jeffs Knock Off Top Seed

Continuing to play its best basketball at the most crucial time of the season sparked the Fairbury Jeffs to a 58-53 semifinal win Tuesday night versus top seed Johnson County Central in the C1-1 Subdistrict held at Beatrice High School.
The key stat for Fairbury was hitting 8-12 free throws down the stretch.
“Early on JCC hit a couple of shots and flew around the floor a little faster than us. JCC was a bit more aggressive than us when the ball was in the air, so they were beating us to the ball here and there,” said Fairbury Jeffs head coach Adam Brill.
Bauer topped the Jeffs in scoring with 18 points, Wasserman, 13 points, DeBoer, 11 points, Cody Huss, eight points, and Nathaniel Stapaules and Tanner Novotny chalked up four points each.
