PREP BOYS BASKETBALL: Redskins falter

Cold shooting, missed FTs add up to loss at St. Joe

SOUTH BEND — A cold shooting stretch in the third period was the difference in the game for the Goshen Redskins in a high school boys basketball contest Tuesday night at South Bend St. Joseph.

The Redskins went from 5:31 to 1:01 on the third period without scoring and ended up dropping a 54-53 decision to the Indians.

During Goshen’s cold stretch the hosts erased a 36-29 Redskin advantage and replaced it with a 41-36 St. Joseph lead.

“We gave up the lead in the third and that was the difference in the game,” Goshen coach Brian Bechtel said. “We didn’t take very good care of the ball in the third and we didn’t hit our free throws. Those are two things we are going to have to do if we want to compete in the sectional next week.”

The Redskins had three of their eight turnovers in the third and were 3-of-6 from the free-throw line before finishing 12-of-18.

“We did a lot of nice things tonight,” Bechtel said. “I felt good about our play on offense. We scored at a good enough clip to win the game. We just needed to make a couple of more stops on defense. We passed the ball well We had 16 assists on 18 baskets.

“Eight turnovers is generally good enough to win a high school game, but their point guard outplayed our point guard. ”

After the Indians took the lead in the third they held it until Goshen went up 51-49 when 5-11 senior Jesse Good drove down the lane for a basket with 1:37 left to play. St. Joseph pulled to within one point (51-50) on a free throw by 6-1 senior Connor Edmonds at 1:18. The Redskins took a 53-50 lead at :59 on a basket by 6-5 senior Sam Stegelmann off a nifty pass from 5-9 classmate Austin Henke.

The Redskins turned the ball over and 6-4 junior Keaton Wieschhaus went in for a layup that made the score 52-52 with :30 remaining. Goshen had a chance to increase the lead but missed the front end of a 1-and-1 at :23. The Indians found Wieschhaus open underneath for a basket at :10. Following a Redskin time out a 3-point attempt was off the mark.

“We had our chances,” Bechtel said. “St. Joseph did a good job of taking advantage of some mismatches and their defense slowed us down a little.

“We need to learn from this. There are some good lessons us can use from this one to get us ready for sectional.”

It was the second time the teams had played this season. The Redskins were 58-53 winners over the Indians in the NIC-NLC Shootout on Dec. 28 at Goshen.

It has been a tale of two different halves of the season for the Indians and coach Marty Harshman. St. Joseph had a 1-6 record when Goshen played them the first time and they are 11-8 after the win on Tuesday.

“Marty and I talked about the before the game,” Bechtel said. “Their schedule has gotten softer in the second half of the season plus their point guard (5-10 sophomore Greenan Sullivan) was injured early on. The first time we played was  his first game of the season.”

Goshen (12-7) closes out the regular season with a home contest against the West Noble Chargers (15-4) Friday on Senior Night. Good, Henke and Stegelmann will play their final home game of their careers.

“They have meant a lot to our program,” Bechtel said. “Jesse and Sam are both three-year starters and Austin stepped into the point guard role last season. I hope we can get them a win on Senior Night.”

Stegelmann scored 18 points to lead the Redskins. He made 5-of-8 field goals and 8-of-11 free throws.

He scored eight points in the opening period as the Indians held a 17-15 advantage at the first stop.

Six-five sophomore Austin Woolett netted 10 points and grabbed nine rebounds for Goshen. He netted four points in the second quarter as the Redskins led 30-27 at halftime.

Woolett was a force on the boards as Goshen outrebounded the taller Indians 26-21.

“We knew rebounding would be tough,” Bechtel said. “St. Joseph had a lot of offensive rebounds early in the game, but the guys did a better job of blocking out once we talked about it.”

Henke added eight points the Redskins, 5-9 freshman Brady Bechtel seven, 6-3 junior Deric Haynes six and Good four.

Six-six junior Mathew Monserez tossed in a game-high 19 points for the Indians. Wieschhaus chipped in with 12 and Sullivan 10.

Three Goshen elementary schools — Chandler, Chamberlain and West Goshen — are providing free meals to all students during the school year as part of the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Community Eligibility Provision of the Healthy Hunger-Free Kids Act of 2010. Nearly 80 percent of students at Chandler, 89 percent of students at Chamberlain and 78 percent of students at West Goshen already qualify for free or reduced-price lunches based on their family income. How do you feel about the new lunch program?
