Rangers edge Rebels againJanuary 17, 2014
From Herald Staff Reports
In a tight game, on an opponent’s home floor, when the Forest Park boys basketball team should be most vulnerable, it’s been at its best.
For the second time this season, the Rangers surged past Pocket Athletic Conference foe South Spencer in Reo by three points, as they did by way of a 46-43 verdict Friday.
Forest Park (5-5, 2-0) outscored the Rebels 16-13 in the fourth quarter three weeks to the day the Rangers edged South Spencer 67-64 in overtime of the two teams’ first-round matchup in the PSC Holiday Classic.
Ranger guard Ben Englert gathered a game-high 16 points while converting 8-of-11 foul shots for Forest Park, which hit just 11-of-20 free throws as a team. Joel Weyer chipped in with 15 points, including four 3-pointers, for Forest Park while Damon Wilmes and Dakota Begle each offered four.
Isaac Hebner (14 points) paced the Rebels (6-6, 1-1), who have lost five straight after starting the season 6-1.
The Rangers will welcome North Posey (3-7, 2-1) to Buechler Arena tonight at 7:30.
