BOYS BASKETBALL: Goshen locks up winning season

LIGONIER — GOSHEN — Never underestimate the significance of a winning season.

Goshen’s Redskins assured themselves of one Saturday afternoon with a 69-35 boys basketball victory over the East Noble Knights at GHS.

The Redskins are now 11-6 and finish the regular season with a visit to Westview next Friday, another to South Bend St. Joseph’s on Feb. 19 and the regular season finale at home Feb. 22 against West Noble.

“We want to finish off this regular season on a good note and then go as far as we can in the (4A at Elkhart) sectional,” said Jesse Good, one of four GHS seniors winding down their careers. “We are trying to make the most of our senior years, showing leadership on and off the floor. Team chemistry and communication are important and we try to pass that on to the younger players.”

Deric Haynes, 6-3 junior substitute, led the Redskins in this game with 16 points while 6-5 senior Sam Stegelmann tallied 13 and 6-2 junior reserve Alex Hartsough 11.

With both Good and freshman point guard Brady Bechtel hitting 3-pointers and Stegelmann scoring in close, the Redskins bolted to an 8-0 lead in less than two minutes.

It was 26-6 at the first stop and 42-17 at halftime as East Noble dropped to 2-16.

Brady Bechtel added eight points for the Skins, both Good and sophomore Jack Gingerich six, senior Austin Henke four, sophomore Austin Woolett three and junior Alex Haney two.

“East Noble has been struggling, so we thought the start was very important,” said GHS coach Brian Bechtel. “We tried to speed them up with good defensive intensity. Jesse Good did a good job against their best player (6-2 junior Kaleb Williams).”

Woolett led the Redskins in rebounds with six and Stegelmann snared five. Haynes had three assists, Henke, Stegelmann and Bechtel two each; and Gingerich two steals.

“We were efficient on offense and had good shot selection,” said Coach Bechtel. “With a big win over Wawasee on Thursday and this one today, it was a good week to get our younger players involved.”

Brady Bechtel’s minutes were limited as he is nursing a torn (knee) meniscus which will require arthroscopic surgery after the season is finished.

“We have three quality opponents left in our regular season and that will be great preparation for the sectional,” said Coach Bechtel. “Westview, St. Joe and West Noble all have good size and athleticism.”

Goshen’s junior varsity improved to 12-5 with a 40-22 win over EN. Cam Kline scored 12 points, Alex Haney and Oliver Nafziger both eight, Jack Gingerich six, D.J. Ambrose four and Trevor Weldy two.
