The Archbold boys basketball team picked up its third Northwest Ohio Athletic League victory, Friday, Jan. 18, with a 55-35 win over visiting Patrick Henry.
Archbold stands at 3-1 in league play, while the Patriots fall to 0-10, 0-3 NWOAL.
AHS put together a solid defensive performance through four quarters, holding the Patriots to just eight field goals and three threepointers.
Jumping out to a 13-7 firstquarter lead, the Streaks, led by Zeb Frank’s 16 points, including four treys, never looked back.
The Patriots canned just two field goals in the first eight minutes. The Streak defense tightened the rope even more in the second stanza, holding the Patriots to just one field goal by Adam Prigge.
Prigge and teammate AJ Wagner each finished the night with nine points.
PH scored the first two points of the second quarter on a pair of free throws by Gabe Jones, while the AHS offense opened up a 12-point halftime lead.
Tyson Dietrich hit a jumper following Jones’ foul shots, followed by Jake Carrizales hitting the Patriots’ only field goal of the second quarter.
Dietrich hit a pair at the charity stripe, and Taylor Price buried a three. Dietrich, who finished with 12 points, closed out second-quarter scoring with a jumper for a comfortable 23-11 halftime advantage.
Archbold outscored the Patriots 14-9 in the third and 18-15 in the fourth for the 55-35 final.
“PH is struggling offensively, so I thought we could get after them pretty well,” said Doug Krauss, AHS head coach.
“They came out in a zone defense. That kind of surprised me; not that they came out in a zone, but I was looking for a different type of zone, and we just kind of stood around.
“I thought we were stagnant that first half. In the second half I thought we moved the ball better and hit the boards better and got the win.
“You always worry about games like this because PH has great history, and you know they can break out someday. I was just glad it wasn’t tonight; this was a solid win for us.”
Both teams grabbed 20 rebounds, but PH committed 14 turnovers to Archbold’s nine.
Archbold was 22-46 from the field for 48% and 4-6 at the foul line for 67%. PH was 11-33 from the field for 33% and 10-17 at the foul line for 59%.
Archbold capped off a double weekend of basketball at Continental (5-9), Saturday, Jan. 19, and picked up a 63- 44 non-league victory.
The Streaks (11-2) led 19-8 after the first quarter, 35-22 at the half, and 50-31 after three.
Tyson Schnitkey led Archbold with 13 points. Frank and Dietrich chipped in 11 each.
Continental’s Chaz Slattman led all scorers with 19 points.
Archbold was 13-16 from the foul line for 81%, while the Pirates were 14-22 for 64%.
