The Patriots (7-8, 2-4 NWOAL) closed the gap to three, 23-20, with 2:35 left in the first half, but Alyssa Schaub’s basket with 1:15 left gave Archbold a 25-20 halftime advantage.

The Streaks poured it on in the third period, outscoring PH 16-7 for a 41-27 lead.

The Patriots closed to within nine, 47-38, with 3:19 left, but a bucket by Hailey Galvan put AHS back up by 11. Two late baskets by PH made the 49-42 final.

Stacy Wyse led Archbold with 11 points. Galvan was also in double figures, with 10.

PH’s Tiffany Ehlers led all scorers, with 12.

“I thought our half-court defense was pretty solid most of the game,” said Brian Ziegler, AHS head coach.

“Abbey Graber and Alyssa Schaub did a nice job on Ehlers. We did a nice job stopping her penetration.

“We made a nice adjustment with our zone offense, and got the ball in the middle for some baskets.”

Both teams grabbed 27 rebounds. Devin Newman and Galvan each had six for AHS.

“Both teams played hard for four quarters,” said Ziegler. “I thought our team defense was as good as it has been. We had intensity and were focused at what we needed to do.”

The score stayed close throughout, and the Streaks were up 39-35 going into the final eight minutes.

“I thought we executed very well on offense against a good defensive team,” said Ziegler.

“Devin Newman did a great job staying after the ball and getting 14 boards.”

The Streaks won the rebounding battle 39-24.

“Our free-throw shooting was huge, especially in the second half when we made 12 out of 15. Our balance again on offense was a big key as well,” said the AHS coach.

Archbold made 17-27 free throws in the contest, while Holgate was 8-12. The Tigers hit four three-pointers, while AHS had none.
