“Right now we’re not hitting a whole lot of perimeter shots, but it’ll start falling for us,” said Doug Krauss, AHS head coach.

“There are some things we need to improve on.”

AHS 58, Edgerton 33

Archbold entertained the Bulldogs on Thursday, Dec. 7.

After a 2-2 tie the Streaks went on a 9-0 run to open up an 11-2 lead.

Braydon Cape scored a layup after a nearly four-minute scoring slump for Edgerton, but Rigo Ramos drained a three-point basket at the end of the period for a 14-4 lead.

The Bulldogs opened the second quarter with a Logan Sack three to cut the difference in half, 14-7.

Ramos then brought the crowd to its feet, driving the baseline and throwing down a two-handed dunk.

Archbold maintained its lead throughout the remainder of the period and led 27- 16 at the half.

The Streaks picked up their defensive pressure and went on an 8-0 run to start the third to take a 35-16 lead.

Cape scored five of the Bulldogs’ six third-period points, but Archbold continued to build its lead when Caleb Wooley scored a layup and was intentionally fouled on the play with 14 seconds left.

Wooley hit two of three free throws and the Streaks ended the period leading 44- 22.

A Kaiden Bedsole three opened the fourth for Archbold’s largest lead of the night, at 47-22.

The big lead allowed Archbold to rest its starters and give younger players some playing time.

Elijah Zimmerman scored six points in the period and the defense continued to stymie the Bulldogs for the 58- 33 win.

“I thought defensively we took them out of some things that they wanted to do,” said Krauss.

“We rebounded a lot better, spread the ball around, and got good play off our bench, and that’s always important.”

Zimmerman led all scorers with 12 points. Ramos and Bryce Williams each added 11.

Cape paced the Bulldogs with nine points.

The Streaks shot 22-42 from the field for 52%, but were only 10-24 from the charity stripe for 42%.

Edgerton (0-3) was 11-28 from the field for 39% and 7- 10 at the foul line for 70%.

Archbold grabbed 23 rebounds to Edgerton’s 12. The Bulldogs committed 22 turnovers to 18 for AHS.

The Wildcats invaded Archbold on Saturday, Dec. 9.

It was another fast start for the Blue and Gold, jumping out to an 18-9 first-quarter lead and 40-19 at the half.

The two teams scored 12 points each in the third and Archbold held the 21-point lead going into the final stanza.

Archbold closed out the Wildcats with a 17-10 fourthquarter advantage for the 69-41 final.

Williams led all scorers with 17 points.

Bedsole dropped five of Archbold’s 12 treys for 15 points, and Ramos scored 14 points.

Josh Klausing scored nine points to pace Kalida.

Archbold scorched the nets, going 24-43 from the field for 56% and 9-11 at the free-throw line for 82%.

Kalida (2-1) was 14-36 from the field for 39% and 9- 10 at the foul line for 90%.

Archbold won the rebounding battle 21-18, and committed only five turnovers to 12 for Kalida.
