PREP GIRLS BASKETBALL: Redskins rebound

Goshen posts nonconference win on road at Fairfield

BENTON — Goshen High School’s girls basketball team was looking to rebound from a tough Saturday night loss at home to NorthWood when the Redskins headed down U.S. 33 to face Fairfield in a nonconference contest Tuesday night.

Mission accomplished, as the Redskins improved to 12-6 on the 2012-13 season with a 54-31 win over the Falcons.

Goshen coach Lenny Krebs was pleased to see his team bounce back.

“I actually feel like our rebound started in the second half of the NorthWood game,” Krebs said. “We did a nice job tonight of limiting Fairfield’s runs ... That’s something we need to do as we get ready for sectionals.”

It was the Falcons (10-7) making the first run out of the gate, as Fairfield scored the first four points of the contest.

Goshen, however, responded with a. 11-0 run. The Falcons came back with a 5-0 spurt to close the opening period trailing by just two at 11-9.

However, the second stanza did not go well for the Falcons, as Goshen outscored the Falcons 19-1 in the period to take a 30-10 lead into the locker room at intermission.

The Falcons played better in the second half, but could not seem to put any kind of dent in the Goshen lead.

Goshen’s Deja Felder, who led the way for the Redskins with 23 points, said there was a key to the second quarter run.

“We stepped up our pressure on defense,” Felder said.

Indeed, it was the Redskins’ 1-2-2 zone trap that led to most of the Falcons’ offensive woes in the second quarter, according to Fairfield coach Brodie Garber.

“We definitely showed our youth tonight,” Garber said. “We executed poorly.”

In addition to Felder’s 23 points, the Redskins got 11 from Aimee Swihart.

Fairfield got 12 points from Jenna Kieper and 10 from Brooke Mast.

The Falcons return to NECC competition Thursday night on the road at West Noble. Goshen returns to NLC action Friday night at home against Elkhart Memorial in the first game of a girls-boys doubleheader.    

Fairfield was a 29-23 winner in the J.V. contest. Taylor Stidham led the J.V. Falcons with 10 points. Katie Kieper added nine.

Brooke Miller and Sonia Velazquez led the Goshen jayvees with six points apiece.
