PREP GIRLS BASKETBALL: Cavemen run away from Goshen

GOSHEN — The Goshen High School girls basketball team took a break from NLC competition Tuesday night to host area nonconference rival Mishawaka.

Things didn’t go very well for the Redskins, who fell to the Cavemen, 58-27.

Goshen (7-7) got off to a good start, with a 7-2 spurt out of the gate. But then the Redskins were held scoreless for a nine-minute stretch spanning the last six minutes of the first quarter and the first three minutes of the second.

But the cold stretch didn’t seem to hurt the Redskins all that much: Mishawaka mustered just 14 points during that time.

The Cavemen led 20-9 at intermission and opened the third with a 11-2 run for a 20-point advantage at 31-11.

Goshen coach Lenny Krebs was pleased with his team’s early start.

The rest of the game, not so much.

”We have to learn to sustain that kind of play for longer periods of time,” Krebs said. “We have to be able to stop teams’ runs.”

Mishawaka coach Kevin Gradeless, meanwhile, was pleased with his team’s ability to weather the initial Goshen surge.

”Goshen came out with some energy,” Gradeless said. “But we settled down and our defense really played well.”

Taylor Parmley and Tagin Schultheis had 12 points each to lead Mishawaka.

Deja Felder led Goshen with 12 points.

Parmley said the Cavemen had to guard against a letdown after Saturday night’s big 46-43 win over LaPorte — the Slicers’ first loss of the year.

”We wanted to come out here tonight and keep after it and show what kind of team we are,” Parmley said.

The Redskins return to action Friday night with another nonconference contest, this one on the road at Jimtown.

Mishawaka was a 35-19 winner in the J.V. contest. Haley VanDusen led the J.V. Cavemen with 15 points. Alexis Stevens led the J.V. Redskins with seven points.
