The Archbold girls basketball team dropped to 9-7, 2-2 in the Northwest Ohio Athletic League with a pair of losses in the Thunderdome last week.

The Streaks hosted Springfield for a non-league contest, Tuesday, Jan. 22, and were edged out 47-45.

Bryan visited AHS, Thursday, Jan. 24. The game stayed close until the middle of the fourth quarter, when the Golden Bears led by as many as 11 before winning by 10, 45-35.

“We competed well under the circumstances, playing with a depleted lineup,” said Brian Ziegler, AHS head coach.

“We put ourselves in a position to win by hitting some clutch free throws. Springfield hit the shot when it was needed for the game winner.”

AHS led 12-10 after one but was down 23-20 at the half and 38-36 after three. Both teams scored nine points in the final eight minutes for the two-point Blue Devils win.

Archbold’s Kayla Boettger suffered a season-ending injury in the contest when she broke her leg in the first quarter.

Lily Krieger got a doubledouble and led the Streaks with 13 points and 10 rebounds. Addison Moyer was also in double figures, with 10.

Four players scored all of Springfield’s (6-11) points. Nia Johnson and Tia Crape each finished with 13 points, while Shiasia Gregory had 11 and Mia Rose scored 10.

AHS was 14-19 at the freethrow line. The Blue Devils were 10-12, and finished with seven three-pointers.

Archbold was on top 12- 8 after one, but Bryan (7-8, 2-2 NWOAL) outscored the Streaks 18-10 in the second period for a 26-22 advantage going into the locker room.

The Bears extended the lead to 34-28 after three, as AHS stayed within striking distance most of the game.

Bryan went on a 7-2 run to open the final eight minutes to lead 41-30, and the Streaks were unable to come back.

“Bryan did a nice job defensively, played hard, and deserved to win,” said Ziegler. “You can’t play tentative and make good things happen.

“We have to come back, play hard, and see what happens.”

Krieger and Harley Phillips each scored 10 points to lead AHS.

Kennedy Lamberson led the Bears with 13 points, while Shallyn Miley had 12.

Archbold was 7-11 at the foul line, and Bryan was 14- 23.

The Bears grabbed 20 rebounds to eight for the Streaks.
