PREP BOYS BASKETBALL: Redskins stumble

ND-bound Jackson leads Marian over Goshen

GOSHEN —  One disastrous quarter was too much for the Goshen Redskins to overcome Wednesday night.

Mishawaka Marian’s Knights outscored the Redskins, 20-2, in the third period on the way to a 51-38 non-conference victory at GHS.

Notre Dame recruit Demetrius Jackson, a 6-1 senior, led the Knights with 27 points. He is on his way to becoming the leading career scorer in St. Joseph County history.

“You need to love the challenge of going up against an All-Star like Jackson,” said Goshen coach Brian Bechtel. “His presence had a lot to do with our struggles in the third quarter, but we need to respond to reach the championship level.”

The Redskins actually led this game at halftime, 23-20, bolstered by a 13-point run while holding Marian scoreless for a stretch of 4:52.

Goshen was 5-for-8 from the field in the second stanza, but only 6-for-30 in the other three.

Not a single Redskin reached double figures with freshman Brady Bechtel scoring nine, sophomore Austin Woolett eight, senior Jesse Good seven, senior Sam Stegelmann six, senior Austin Henke five, junior Deric Haynes two and junior Alex Hartsough one.

“We just couldn’t keep our inside game going in the second half,” said Bechtel. “We lost our composure a bit when we couldn’t score and then couldn’t get stops.”

Woolett scored six points, Bechtel four, Stegelmann two and Hartsough one during Goshen’s second-period run which turned a 17-9 deficit into a 22-17 lead.

Marian scored the first eight points of the third quarter and then, after a bucket by Stegelmann, the next 12 to make it a runaway.

The Redskins mixed defenses with freshman Bechtel often matched up with Jackson.

Woolett led GHS in rebounds with seven while Brady Bechtel had four assists and four steals.

Goshen is now 7-4 and has a tough stretch ahead, starting with a trip to NorthWood on Friday and a home date with Elkhart Memorial the following week in Northern Lakes Conference action.

“January is always our toughest month and Marian being moved in there made it even more brutal,” said Bechtel. “Our guys will be excited to play NorthWood and we will see how we respond after a loss.”

Goshen’s junior varsity, after losing a 20-point lead in the fourth period, won 43-41 on a 10-footer by freshman Cam Kline with :02 on the clock. Sophomore Jack Gingerich scored 12 points, Kline 11, junior Alex Haney 10, sophomore Oliver Nafziger six and junior D.J. Ambrose four for 7-4 GHS.

GAME NOTE: Jackson made his varsity debut for Marian as a freshman against Goshen on Nov. 24, 2009 at the Mishawaka Catholic school. He scored six points in a 34-33 Marian victory.
