Two County Teams Bow Out Of Sectional Tourney

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.

Leading Wabash was Taylor Vigar with 15 points. Kaleb Kelsheimer added 9, Juwan Carter 6, Marcus Jones 6, Chase Dirig 5, Brodie Hough 2, Owen Yeadon 2.
