PREP BASKETBALL: It's Goshen's night

Boys, girls hoop squads sweep Memorial

ELKHART — It was an NLC sweep for the Goshen Redskins Friday night at North Side Gym in Elkhart.

The Goshen boys welcomed back sophomore guard Brady Bechtel back into the lineup as three Redskins scored in double figures, including a career-high 20 from junior Jack Gingerich, in a 63-51 win over the Elkhart Memorial Crimson Chargers.

In the girls game, the Goshen Redskins posted a 44-40 come-from-behind victory as senior Deja Felder scored a team-high 11 points and freshman Aylissa Trosper chipped in with 10.

Bechtel had missed the last 10 games due to a knee injury.

“Brady’s presence on the floor gives us more confidence,” Goshen coach Brian Bechtel said. “He helped our guards with the ball handling. Jack (Gingerich) didn’t have to do as much tonight. We had two point guards on the floor.

“We’ve been having guys do more things than they should have and Brady’s return relieved some of that stress.”

Gingerich had a good game shooting the ball as he was 6-of-10 (4-of-6 from 3-point range) and 4-of-5 from the free-throw line.

Junior Austin Woolett added 13 points for the Redskins and Bechtel contributed 11.

Goshen outrebounded the Chargers 29-16. Senior Alex Haney had 11 rebounds and classmate Deric Haynes eight.

“We blocked out well and rebounded well,” Bechtel said. “Haney is a player we want in the lineup because of his rebounding.”

Haynes scored four points in the game, but dished out five assists.

“Haynes had excellent shot selection,” Bechtel said. “He is a player the other team keys on. Tonight he made some good passes. Tonight Deric was a great rebounder and a great passer.”

Senior Alex Hartsough came off the bench to score eight points and sophomore Cam Kline tossed in three in a reserve role.

“Alex and Cam gave us some valuable minutes off the bench,” Bechtel said.
