The Archbold girls basketball team raised its record to 12-1, 5-0 in the Northwest Ohio Athletic League with wins over Stryker and Montpelier last week.

The Streaks hosted Stryker, Tuesday, Jan. 12, in a non-league contest. The Panthers (5-5) hit only two of the many three-pointers they tossed up and AHS came away with a 53-39 victory.

Montpelier (0-12, 0-4 NWOAL) went scoreless in the first period and AHS coasted to a 52-18 NWOAL victory, Friday, Jan. 15.

AHS 53, Stryker 39

“This was a good nonleague win,” said Brian Ziegler, AHS head coach. “Stryker is a scrappy team and knew that they would make runs on us.

“I thought for the most part we did a good job on their scorers. Our guards did a nice job getting the ball into Hailey Galvan down low. We didn’t force it in when it wasn’t available.

“We did a good job on the boards for the most part, but still need to improve.”

Archbold led 17-10 after one and 29-22 at the half. The Streaks extended the advantage to 42-29 after three, and outscored the Panthers 11-10 in the fourth for the 14-point victory.

Galvan led all scorers with 19 points. Torey Varner was Stryker’s only player in double figures, with 11.

The Panthers committed 14 turnovers to Archbold’s five.

Leading 17-0 after one period, the Streaks widened the gap to 32-4 at halftime. Archbold outscored the Locos 20-14 in the second half for the victory.

“This was a game we needed to remain focused and not overlook Montpelier,” said Ziegler. “We had a nice win Tuesday, so this was a game we could have easily overlooked and played flat.

“We did a great job taking care of business. Our defensive pressure was a huge factor tonight. Our pressure led to many fast break points.”

Galvan again led AHS with 12 points.

The Streaks won the rebounding battle, 32-21. Devin Newman grabbed seven.
