Lady Apaches escape

by Gary Andrews

With Kyleigh Hampton out with illness and Abby Stein out with an injury the Wabash Lady Apache basketball team needed someone to step up Wednesday against Lewis Cass. Leading scorer Claire Cromer did just that with a 28 point performance with several other players making key shots down the stretch as Wabash used a fourth quarter comeback to top Cass 56-49.

Claire Cromer and Sarah Pucket both hit buckets in the first minute but the Lady Apaches trailed 6-4 because of two, three pointers from Savanna Thompson of Cass. Pucket would again hit to knot the score at 6, but the Lady Kings were finding the bucket and led 10-7 when Puckett and Cromer hit two free throws each to put the Apaches up 11-10. Back came the Kings with four straight to go up 14-11 when Cromer hit before the buzzer to make it 14-13.

Lady Apaches get TRC win at Manchester

by Gary Andrews

The Wabash and Manchester girls’ basketball teams were battling for the second time this season Saturday, as the lady Apaches paid Manchester a visit in a TRC match up. Wabash had defeated Manchester in the county tourney in December 52-27 and backed that up with a 63-31 win Saturday.

The game started in a helter smelter fashion with the first four possessions ending with a turnover. Kyleigh Hampton would break the ice with a three pointer to give Wabash a 3-0 lead and Wabash built the lead to 5-0 with two Claire Cromer free throws. Cierra Carter would stop the Apache run with a bucket to make it 5-2 and the Lady Squires hung close, trailing just 9-6 when Cromer hit a free throw and Lyndsie Thomas a bucket to stretch the lead to 12-6. Kiana Gillum and Lyndsie Thomas would trade buckets to end the quarter as Wabash led 14-8.

Phillipy erupts in Knights win over Whitko

by Gary Andrews

With the injury to Jackson Blair keeping him on the sideline, Southwood leading scorer Corey Phillipy knew he needed to step up Friday against Whitko. Stepping up would be an under statement as Phillipy erupted for 34 points in the Knights 68-47 win over the Wildcats.

Whitko would stay with Southwood the first quarter as the Knights led just 16-14 after the first stop before Corey Phillipy and the tandem of Ross Phillipy and Alex Harmon started to dominate. Southwood would out score Whitko 14-7 in the second to take a 30-21 lead to the locker room.

Squires even the score with Apaches in overtime thriller

by Gary Andrews

The Wabash and Manchester boys’ basketball teams were meeting for the second time this season Friday night at Coolman gym. Back on Dec. 27, the Apaches knocked off the Squires 63-56 in the Wabash County tourney, so the Squires had revenge on their minds. Manchester did get their revenge, but it took an extra quarter when Apache Jordan Blair hit three free throws with no time remaining to send it to OT, as the Squires survived a 61-58 overtime slug fest.

The game went just as most figured. The largest lead of the night was 7 points by Wabash, which they did in the second and third quarters.

Wabash got off to a 2-0 lead on a Kodi Clemons bucket that was answered with buckets from Clayton Petrie and Claudell Dickantone to give Manchester a 4-2 lead. The two teams would trade leads or be tied six more times when Manchester led 11-9 with a few seconds to go. Jordan Blair would then bang home a shot at the buzzer and the game was where it was when it started, tied.

Grant Sailors would get Wabash the lead to start the second quarter and was followed with a three pointer from Roger Davis to put the Apaches up 16-11. After a Manchester time out, the Apaches would strike again with a Sailors bucket to increase the lead to 18-11. Chase Fierstos would hit to stop the 7 point Wabash run, but was answered by Cody King to make it 20-13. The Squires would cut the lead to three when Clayton Petrie and Chase Fierstos connected, but Roger Davis shut the door with a three as Wabash led 23-17 at the half.

Squires’ balance too much For Warriors

by Gary Andrews

The Manchester boys’ basketball team played the lone county game Friday, hosting North Miami. Putting eleven players in the scoring column the Squire depth was too much for the Warriors as Manchester cruised to a 70-39 home win.

North Miami would get their only lead of the night on the first shot of the game when Damon Gipson hit to give the Warriors a 2-0 lead. The North Miami lead was short lived when Chase Fierstos drained a three and was followed by a bucket from Claudell Dickantone to give the Squires a 5-2 lead. North Miami would hang with the Squires early as Alex Borse traded buckets with Braydon Sewell and Manchester led 10-8 when Fierstos banged home a three at the buzzer to give the Squires a 13-8 lead after one.
