The difference was never wider than five points when the Tigers visited the Thunderdome, Tuesday, Jan. 8.

The score was tied at 13 after one, and Holgate held a slim 26-24 lead at the half.

The Tigers were up by five, 36-31 after three.

Archbold closed the gap to 36-33 when Lily Krieger scored on a put-back to open the fourth.

Madilyn Hohenberger answered with a basket for Holgate (10-3).

Krieger scored on a traditional three-point play to get AHS within two, but Justine Eis put Holgate back up by four, 40-36.

“Holgate played well tonight and deserved to win,” said Brian Ziegler, AHS head coach.

“Until we figure out we have to play four quarters to win games, we’ll continue to win a couple and then lose a couple.”

Hohenberger led all scorers, with 17 points. Eis added 14.

Gabby Nafziger and Andi Peterson each scored nine to lead the Streaks.

The Tigers won the rebounding battle 16-11, but committed 12 turnovers to five for AHS.

The Streaks led 33-12 at the half and 44-24 after three, but Wauseon attempted a comeback with a 24-11 fourth quarter only to fall short.

“We came out with a lot of energy, and it showed in the halftime score,” said Ziegler. “The second half we relaxed and Wauseon took advantage of it.

“Wauseon got the momentum on its side and we did enough to hold on. We did a nice job getting the ball to Andi and made enough free throws at the end.”

The Indians grabbed 33 rebounds to 15 for the Streaks, but committed 22 turnovers to nine for AHS.

Peterson led all scorers, with 23 points. Nafziger added 11.

Marisa Seiler led Wauseon, with 21 points. Sam Aeschliman finished with 11.

Archbold was 11-19 at the foul line while Wauseon was 15-23.
