“Glenn moved the ball well and they shot the ball well,” Bechtel said. “Glenn did a nice job of getting their shooters open and then their shooters knocked the shots down.”
Goshen (1-1) travels to Bremen Friday where they will likely see another physical team in the Lions.
“We have got to get better at handling the physical style,” Bechtel said. “Glenn beat us up in the post and our guys did not respond well. We ended up going to a smaller lineup.”
Senior Deric Haynes, who scored 26 points in Tuesday’s 51-50 win at Marian, netted a team-high 12 points for the Redskins.
“We have got to develop multiple scoring options,” Bechtel said. “I’m sure the early scouting report on us is to shut down Haynes and we don’t have anyone to step up. We can’t just rely on Haynes. We have to get Brady (Bechtel) and Jack (Gingerich) to shoot more. We also need to find a player to score in the post.”
Sophomore Brady Bechtel scored nine points, junior Jack Gingerich seven, junior Isaac Huerta six, junior Austin Woolett five and senior Alex Hartsough two for the Redskins.
Glenn opened the third period with a 9-2 run for a 27-18 lead at the 5:28 mark. The Redskins pulled to within four points (27-23) on a pair of free throws by Hartsough at 5:02 and a three-point play by Gingerich following a steal at 4:49.
Gingerich had five steals in the contest.
“Jack has great hands and long arms,” Bechtel said. “The kids called him ‘Birdman’ because he has long wings.”
Glenn turned things back in their favor when Prentkowski swished treys on back-top-back possessions to put the Falcons up 33-25 at the 3:14 mark of the third quarter. Goshen trailed 38-32 entering the fourth after Bechtel canned a ‘3’ from the corner.
The Falcons started the fourth with a 5-0 run for a 43-32 lead and the Redskins never got the deficit under double digits the rest of the way.
