PREP BOYS BASKETBALL: Won for the road

Goshen wraps up regular season with road victory

LIGONIER — A packed gym; two loud, boisterous cheering sections; prep basketball action on the floor.

It must be Friday night in Indiana.

On this particular Indiana Friday night, it was West Noble and Goshen hooking up to end the 2013-14 regular season.

It was the Redskins heading into sectional week on a winning note with a 75-65 victory on Senior Night for the hosts.

It was just the kind of effort Goshen coach Brian Bechtel wanted to see from his team, which won its second straight and seventh of its last eight.

“We played well offensively, and we had our moments on defense,” Bechtel said.

Playing especially well offensively for the Redskins was senior forward Deric Haynes, who poured in a career-high 30 points.

Haynes said the Redskins knew they would have to step up their game against the Chargers Friday night.

“We knew it was their Senior Night, and we knew we had to get out to a good start,” Haynes said.

Goshen (11-9) got the early upper hand in this one, as the Redskins rallied from a 5-1 deficit with a 14-6 run over the remainder of the opening stanza for a 15-11 advantage at the first stop.

West Noble (16-5) tied it with a 7-3 burst to start the second, but the Redskins scratched back out to a four-point advantage at 24-20. A quick 5-0 run by the Chargers, capped off by a Drew Schermerhorn 3-pointer, gave West Noble a short-lived 25-24 advantage.

The Redskins went on an 11-5 run to close out the half and take a 35-30 lead into the locker room.

Goshen gained some separation early in the third with an 11-5 spurt out of the gate for a 46-35 advantage. The Redskins led by as many as 14 and the Chargers got no closer than eight.

Despite the loss, West Noble coach Jim Best was not disappointed.
