PREP BOYS BASKETBALL: Redskins roll

Goshen wraps up winning NLC campaign at home

GOSHEN —  It can truly be declared that everyone contributed to an easy Goshen High School boys basketball victory Thursday night.

GHS coach Brian Bechtel sent 12 players into action and all scored during a 66-27 Northern Lakes Conference triumph over a very young squad of Wawasee Warriors.

The Redskins finish NLC play at 4-3 and take a 10-6 overall record into a Saturday contest at home against the East Noble Knights from Kendallville. The JV tipoff is at 1 and varsity about 2:30.

“It was nice to get everyone in the game,” said Bechtel. “That’s good experience for our younger players who we need in the future. We’ve had a tough stretch of games with our schedule rated the 70th toughest in the state.”

Austin Woolett, 6-5 sophomore, continued to blossom with 18 points, 14 rebounds and four steals against the Warriors who had nine sophomores, three freshmen, two juniors and one senior see action.

Senior Sam Stegelmann had 12 points for Goshen with classmates Austin Henke and Jesse Good needed for just three points apiece.

Underclassmen tallied 48 of the Redskins’ 66 points with junior Deric Haynes scoring seven, freshman Brady Bechtel, junior D.J. Ambrose and sophomore Jack Gingerich five each, senior Cristian Barron, juniors Alex Hartsough and Trevor Weldy and freshman Cameron Kline two each.

“We are led by our three seniors, but are a better basketball team when those underclassmen contribute like this,” said Coach Bechtel. “Woolett took advantage of his opportunities and it was good to see Haynes get untracked.”

Wawasee, which has featured a fast-paced attack in recent years, tried to slow it down against the Redskins. It was 11-5 after one quarter and 29-10 at halftime.

“We thought they might be patient and try to make it a low-possession game,” said Bechtel. “The tendency is to shoot quickly against a team playing like that, but our guys executed at the offensive end and took good shots.

“With such a big lead at halftime, we told the kids there were still 16 minutes to play. We guarded the 3-point line and didn’t let them get on a roll. On the down side, we had too many turnovers and shot poorly at the free-throw line.”

The Redskins shot 65.8 percent from the field and dominated rebounding, 32-17. Henke led the team in assists with five. Good had two steals.

Sophomore Alex Clark was Wawasee’s top scorer with 12 points and sophomore Stori Bright led the Warriors in rebounds with five.

Goshen’s junior varsity improved to 11-5 with a 32-25 win. Sophomore Oliver Nafziger and Ambrose both scored seven points for the Skins, Kline six, Weldy four, Gingerich and sophomore Braden Coblentz both three and junior Alex Haney two. Freshman Jeffrey Moore and sophomore David Rocha both netted six for WHS.
