“We had good balance tonight,” said Brian Ziegler, AHS head coach. “We had some shots not fall, but Fairview kept coming back at us.

“We would make some runs, then they made some. Good teams find a way to win when shots aren’t falling.”

Archbold led 15-12 after the first quarter and 32-25 at the half.

The Streaks made their move in the third. After some back-and-forth scoring, Archbold went on a 14-4 run that turned a 37-29 lead with 5:44 left in the period into a 51-33 advantage after three.

Archbold led by as many as 22 points in the fourth quarter on its way to the win.

The Streaks led 14-2 after one and 24-6 at the half on their way to a 31-point victory at Edgerton (1-3).

“I thought we came out and executed defensively very well tonight,” said Ziegler. “Our guards did a nice job with putting pressure on the ball and forcing turnovers leading to fast breaks.

“It was a nice team win heading into the Defiance Physical Therapy Classic.”

The Streaks again had a trio of players in double figures. E. Peterson led all scorers, with 16 points. Andi Peterson and Hostetler added 10 each.
