The Streaks went on the road and defeated Eastwood 79-53, Friday, Dec. 28, and Fairview 72-36, Saturday, Jan. 5.

Archbold hosted Ottawa Hills in the Thunderdome, Thursday, Jan. 3, and dispatched the Green Bears 75- 45.

The Streaks averaged 75.3 points in the three games– with 33 three-pointers– while allowing an average of 44.7 points on defense.

“We’re playing extremely unselfish basketball right now,” said Joe Frank, AHS head coach.

“Obviously, as a coach, it’s a lot of fun to watch kids out there trying to make the team better and not worrying about how many shots they’re getting or how many points they are scoring.”

Archbold opened a big lead and coasted to a big win over the Apaches (3-4).

The Streaks jumped out to a 25-9 first-quarter advantage and outscored Fairview 22-4 in the second for a 47-13 lead at the half.

The Streaks held a 25-23 advantage in the second half for the 36-point margin of victory.

Archbold had four players in double figures. Jeron Williams led the way with 13 points and three of the team’s 11 treys. Rigo Ramos posted 12 points, with four treys; Austin Wiemken, 11 points, and Ethan Hagans, 10. AJ Mahnke had three treys, and Andrew Hogrefe, one.

Chayse Singer was the only Apache in double figures, with 11 points.

The Streaks opened the new year with an easy win over the Green Bears (4-2).

It was another great offensive start mixed with an overwhelming defense that set the tone.

The Streaks opened with a 20-5 first-quarter run on the strength of Ramos and Wiemken, who scored six points each.

Archbold increased the difference to 40-19 at the half thanks to Wiemken and Ramos’ 14 combined points in the quarter.

The Streaks built their biggest lead of the game to end the third, at 63-30.

Frank inserted his reserves for the entire fourth quarter.

“It all started at the defensive end,” said Frank. “They (Ottawa Hills) couldn’t get any free looks inside because we were putting so much pressure on the perimeter.

“They were having a hard time even seeing in there.”

Ten players scored for AHS.

Wiemken led all scorers with 16 points.

Ramos and Elijah Zimmerman were also in double figures with 15 and 11 points, respectively.

The Streaks hit 12 three-pointers to three for the Green Bears. Ramos hit four, while Williams hit three.

James Silk led Ottawa Hills with 11 points. Eliot Cummings added 10.

AHS 79, Eastwood 53

Archbold led 41-31 at the half and continued to roll in the second half, outscoring Eastwood 38-22 for the 26- point margin of victory.

Wiemken and Williams paced Archbold with 22 points each.

Ramos and Zimmerman finished with 11 each.

The Streaks hit 10 treys. Williams led the Streaks with four while Ramos had three.

Jacob Halko led the Eagles (2-6) with 15 points. Christian Peters scored 13 and Noah Henline had 11.
