Prep sports wrap: 12/14December 13, 2018
From Herald Staff Reports
There was an abundance of prep sports action going on Thursday evening from basketball battles to wrestling meets.
Here’s a brief rundown of what you might have missed.
Patriots 60, Bears 53: The Heritage Hills boys basketball team bounced back from last Saturday’s road loss to Washington with a home victory over a strong Evansville Central team in Lincoln City.
Central led early but Heritage Hills responded to take a 32-27 lead at the halftime break. The game was tied with as little as 1:33 left but Heritage Hills took the lead on a Blake Sisley and-one basket and never looked back.
Murray Becher led the Patriots in scoring with 21 points while Simon Scherry (14) and Sisley (11) were also in double-digits.
Rangers 46, Rams 39: The Forest Park girls basketball team traveled to Paoli and defeated a tough, and at one point ranked, Rams squad.
Forest Park dominated the first half en route to a 24-8 lead but Paoli wasn’t going to go away easily. The Rams outscored the Rangers 31-22 in the second half but Forest Park held strong late for the victory.
Macie Zink led Forest Park with 16 points while Ali Welp and Faith Zazzetti both finished with 11 points each.
Rangers 45, Hatchets 18: It was a solid road trip for the Forest Park wrestling team as they came away with a victory at Washington.
Patrick Recker, Isaac Brosmer, Travis Haug and Isaac Fuhrman were all victorious by pin while Austin Hoppenjans won with a 6-4 decision. Dylan Niehaus, Cole Mohr and Anderson Peters all won by forfeit.
