The Archbold girls basketball team suffered two non-league losses last week to fall to 1-2 on the season.

Eastwood 80, AHS 52

Leading 41-28 at the half, the Eagles (1-0) exploded for 27 points in the third quarter while the Streaks scored only seven to blow the game open at 68-35, Tuesday, Nov. 26, in the Thunderdome.

“We did a nice job in the first quarter attacking their press, but we lost focus and let too many mistakes snowball and gave up too many fast break points,” said Brian Ziegler, AHS head coach.

“Eastwood… took advantage of our mistakes.”

The Eagles won the rebounding battle 42-26, while committing only 12 turnovers to Archbold’s 31.

Eastwood’s Jamie Schmeltz led all scorers, with 27 points. She had three of the Eagles’ nine three pointers.

Kylie Sauder led AHS with 17 points, including three of the team’s five three-pointers, and five rebounds. Naomi Rodriguez added 10 points.

Eastwood was 17-25 at the foul line. Archbold was 7-15.

Wauseon 46, AHS 32

The Streaks were down by only five points, 34-29, after three quarters, but scored only three points in the fourth compared to 12 for the Indians as Wauseon defeated AHS 46-32, Friday, Nov. 29, in the Thunderdome.

“Wauseon did a good job keeping us out of any kind of offensive flow we tried to get into,” said Ziegler.

“We did a nice job competing in the first half, but Wauseon did a much better job the second half.

“Wauseon deserved to win the game.”

The Indians won the rebounding battle 21-18, and committed one fewer turnover.

Abi Borojevich led AHS, with 13 points, including all three of the team’s treys. Sauder scored 10 points and grabbed five rebounds.

Marisa Seiler led Wauseon (2-0) with 16 points. Sydney Zirkle added 14.
