The Archbold girls basketball team raised its record to 3-0, 1-0 in the Northwest Ohio Athletic League with two victories last week.

The Streaks traveled to Wauseon, Tuesday, Nov. 30, and came home with a 41-36 non-league victory.

Archbold hosted Liberty Center, Friday, Dec. 3, for a league battle. The Streaks won 43-36.

AHS 41, WHS 36

“Tonight was a nice nonleague win,” said Brian Ziegler, AHS head coach. “Both teams competed very hard.

“Both of us struggled on offense due to being so familiar with one another. Wauseon made a run in the fourth quarter and we had girls step up and make big free throws at crunch time.

“Alicia Drewes did a nice job hitting seven of 10 free throws in the fourth. The free-throw line was definitely a big key in the victory.”

Archbold hit 13-26 free throws in the contest, while Wauseon was 4-11.

The Streaks led 12-9 after one period and went on a 6- 0 run in the second period to go into halftime with an 18-9 advantage.

AHS led 28-17 after three, but Wauseon outscored the Streaks 19-13 in the fourth quarter to close the final gap to five points.

Drewes led all scorers with 19 points. Bailey Creager and Chelsea Cochrane led WHS (1-1) with 10 points each.

Archbold won the rebounding battle 29-24. Drewes led AHS with nine.

The Streaks had two more turnovers, 19-17.

AHS 43, LC 36

“It’s nice opening league play with a win,” said Ziegler. “We didn’t play our best game by any means, but give LC credit. They out-hustled and outplayed us in the first half.

“Good teams find a way to win when you’re not at your best, and we were able to find a way.

“I thought we had girls step up tonight and got a lot of production off the bench, which is important as we move into the rest of the schedule.”

The Tigers led 9-8 after one period, but an 8-6 second quarter put AHS in the lead at halftime, 16-15.

The game stayed tight in the second half, as AHS took a 26-23 lead into the final quarter. The Streaks made 7-14 free throws in the fourth quarter for the 43-36 final.

Drewes again led the Streaks with 18 points. Nicole Hurst had nine of Archbold’s 28 rebounds.

Kaitlann Hogrefe led the Tigers (2-1, 0-1 NWOAL) with 15 points; she also grabbed 15 of LC’s 28 rebounds.

LC committed 28 turnovers to Archbold’s 20.
