The Archbold girls basketball team, ranked second in Division III by the Associated Press, improved to 17-1 with a 55-35 defeat of Continental, Thursday, Jan. 31, in the Thunderdome.

“This was a solid win tonight against a solid team,” said Brian Ziegler, AHS head coach.

“Cassidy Wyse did a nice job getting us going in the first half and had very good ball movement against their zone (defense).

“Our defensive pressure was very good and took them out of their offensive flow.

“I thought we did a very nice job playing as a team both offensively and defensively. Our balance on the offensive end has been huge all year.

“Our team chemistry continues to grow. We did a much better job at the foul line, also.”

The Streaks led 12-2 after one period, 26-11 at the half, and 43-25 after three.

Wyse led all scorers with 15 points. Jesse Fidler was also in double figures, with 12.

No Pirate was in double figures. Vanessa Koppenhofer led the visitors with eight points.

The Pirates, who dropped to 12-5, won the rebounding battle 27-19, but also committed 21 turnovers to Archbold’s 12.

The Streaks were 8-11 from the foul line for 73% while the Pirates were 12-19 for 63%.
