PREP BOYS BASKETBALL: Redskins ground Falcons in opener

GOSHEN — The Goshen Redskins started the 2012-13 high school boys basketball season with a flurry.

Five-eleven senior Jesse Good tossed in 21 points and 6-5 classmate Sam Stegelmann chipped in with 20 as the Redskins rolled over the visiting John Glenn Falcons, 82-42, Saturday night.

“We wanted to make a statement,” Good said. “I think the scoreboard speaks for itself.”

The 82 points is the most scored by Goshen since an 85-57 win over Concord on Jan. 10, 2003, as senior Matt Lewallen poured in 29 points, junior Jeff Swartz 21 and senior Andrew Hershberger 19.

“Everything started tonight with our defense,” Goshen coach Brian Bechtel. “We made it very difficult for them to get open looks. We had really good 1-on-1 defense.

“Our seniors have a lot of experience and can play with poise. It showed tonight.

“This is the most balanced team on offense we’ve had since 2003. We feel we have five guys on the floor that can lead us in scoring on any given night. That makes is harder for the opposing team’s defense because they can’t lay off any player.”

The other senior starter for the Redskins 5-9 Austin Henke added five points and dished out seven assists.

“Jesse shot the ball well,” Bechtel said. “Sam did what Sam can do. Austin gave us some good leadership. His shots were not falling tonight, but they will.”

Good was 6-of-7 shooting, including 4-of-5 from 3-point range.

“I only missed one shot so I can’t complain about my shooting,’ Good said.

Goshen (1-0) hosts Bremen Friday.

The Redskins started right away opening a 4-0 lead by 6:15 of the first. Stegelmann scored the first points of the season on a basket at 6:54 and 6-5 sophomore Austin Woolett added a pair of free throws at 6:15. Glenn cut the lead to one point when junior Tyler Prentkowski drained a ‘3,’ but that was the lasting time the Falcons were within striking distance as Goshen closed out the quarter with a 16-3 run. Stegelmann scored eight points, Good and 6-3 junior Deric Haynes both five for the Redskins.

Goshen stretched the lead to 39-13 by halftime as Good netted five points and Woolett four in the second.

Woolett finished the game with eight points and a game-high 14 rebounds.

“Woolett adds a whole new dimension to our team,” Bechtel said. “His main roles are going to be rebounding and setting screens.”

The youngster is OK with that role.

“My job is to hit the boards,” Woolett said. “I feel I can get a lot of rebounds and help the team out.”

Goshen kept things rolling in the third as the lead ballooned to 60-25 entering the fourth.

Haynes came off the bench for the Redskins.

“He gave us a spark off the bench,” Bechtel said. “He played well enough to start for a lot of teams.”

Also making their varsity debut was 5-9 freshman point guard Brady Bechtel. He tossed in six points with the first points of his varsity career coming on two tosses from the free-throw line at 2:44 of the second period.

“Brady does a lot of things that don’t show up in the statistics,” Bechtel said. “He did some crafty things out there tonight. He made Glenn come up and guard him at times and that opened up shots for other players.”

Good agreed with his coach’s assessment of the youngster’s performance handling the Goshen offense.

“Brady didn’t try to do too much,” Good said. “He stayed within himself.”

Another youngster that played well for the Redskins was 6-2 junior Alex Hartsough who chipped in with five points.

“Alex spent more time in the gym since last season than any other player,” Bechtel said. “He has made himself into a more complete player.”

Hartsough showed his hustle as he grabbed a rebound on the defensive end and flew down the court to snare an offensive rebound.

Five-eight senior Cristian Barron scored four points for Goshen.

“He played his role well and knocked done a shot when he had the chance,” Bechtel said.

Senior Nathan Stegmiller had nine points and Prentkowski seven to lead the Falcons.

Goshen was a 46-14 JV winner. Freshman Cameron Kline netted 11 points, sophomore Jack Gingerich nine, Hartsough and junior Chase Goodman both seven.

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?
