YORKTOWN — Adams Central coach Doug Schultz calls his team's performance Saturday at Yorktown "mediocre" as the Jets went 3-2, losing in the battle of No.1s to the hosts, 58-16, then falling to New Haven and former AC coach Barry Humble, 39-27.
The Jets took second in their pool, slamming Prairie Heights 68-6 and Maconaquah 69-12, and also downing Culver Community 46-25.
NEW HAVEN—The Bellmont girls basketball team scored nearly five times as many points in the second half Saturday night than it did in the first half and thus earned a 40-35 win over the New Haven Bulldogs in the NHC opener for the Squaws.
Of course, that offensive production wasn't that difficult considering the Squaws went into the locker room at halftime with just seven points scored on 3-22 shooting (13.6 percent).
MONROE— Friday night's amazing AC win over Woodlan in double overtime at the Hangar could be summed up by just two words...Dalton Combs.
Leading Adams Central in every sense of the word against the Warriors, Combs scored 45 points (53% of the Jets' scoring) en route to an 85-78 final in favor of the home team.
Only Landon Adler in his tenure as a Jet has scored more points in a game netting 47 against a Canterbury team in 2004.
FORT WAYNE — In its 25th and most likely final NHC wrestling contest with perennial state power Bellmont, Carroll did something Thursday night that it has never done before: win.
Taking charge of the 2012-13 NHC wrestling dual-meet competition, the favored Chargers scored five falls in the first eight matches, then added another pin later in a convincing 49-24 win over the Braves.
"They took it to us," said BHS assistant coach Paul Gunsett.
GARRETT—It was a night to forget for the Bellmont fans who ventured to Garrett High School on Wednesday night to see the Braves battle their third ACAC opponent this season in the Railroaders.
The home team Railroaders came out guns ablazin’ putting the game out of reach early in a 57-28 rout of Bellmont.
Garrett jumped out to an early 7-0 edge on five free throws and an easy basket while the Braves began their shooting woes missing their first nine shot attempts.
It was a good night to root against the Braves at the Teepee Tuesday evening.
The Bellmont girls basketball team rallied from a seven-point deficit early in the fourth period by scoring five points in a span of seven seconds and the Squaws knocked off the Blackhawk Christian Braves by a final 59-56 count in non-conference action to pick up their second win of the season.
South Adams took a pair of championships for their eighth grade boys and seventh grade girls in the Adams County Middle School tournament over the weekend, while the St. Joe girls eighth grade and the Adams Central seventh grade boys were victorious as well.
South Adams eighth grade boys had to go through Bellmont in game one where they toppled the Braves 44-32 on the strength of three double digit scorers for the Stars. SA led 27-17 at the halftime break, then 38-23 after three quarters.
MONROEVILLE—After getting the first three W’s out of the way (Wayne, Woodlan, Whitko), Bellmont fell just short of the W they were really after at Heritage on Saturday night losing to their second ACAC opponent in a nail biter 49-46.
The Braves (1-3) entered Patriot-ville after topping the Whitko Wildcats in a defensive struggle 32-19 at the Teepee last week for their first win of the season.
The Bellmont girls' basketball team started out Friday's home game against East Noble looking like it was on its way to its second victory of the season.
Bellmont began on an 8-0 run in the first quarter with four different scorers finding the basket.
"Everybody was pretty pumped up and shots were falling for us," Bellmont coach Andy Heim said. "Everybody was excited to be out there."
