Friday Night Recap

high school basketball pg head

On Friday night there was plenty of basketball action within the four county schools. There were eight total games–four girls and four boys– and it was a good night for it.

Doug and Johnathon were at South Putnam where the girls beat South Vermillion 69-46 and the boys lost an 11-point fourth quarter lead to lose to the Wildcats 65-61.

Cloverdale traveled to Edgewood and the Mustangs came away with both victories winning in the girls’ game 47-30 and the boys’ game 78-69. Clovers’ girls coach Matthew Langdon had this to say about his girls’ performance:

“We got off to a slow start offensively, and we got behind 12 early in the game but once again had a great response and went on a 15-3 run to take the lead. I was very proud of our girls ability to continue to battle in a very physical game. We just could not get some shots to fall in the second half, and they eventually extended their lead. I am never satisfied with a loss, but it was a game that we will take a lot from moving forward.”

The Greencastle girls traveled to West Vigo and won 54-30. Gracie Smith led the Tiger Cubs with 12 points. The boys lost to the Vikings 48-35.

North Putnam hosted Owen Valley and both Cougar teams lost. The girls lost 40-35 and the boys lost 43-31.
