Game report from Josie Miller

The Beechcroft Cougars had an up-and-down regular season playing well in some games and bad in others.

But they are still a dangerous team with Maurice Hale, Khaleed Franklin and Arthur Thomas.

Two of the those players are the reason that the Cougars upset fellow City League member Marion-Franklin on Saturday in the Division II tournament at Dublin Scioto.

Franklin scored 23 points and Thomas scored 16 to help Beechcroft (9-14) advance with a 69-65 win.

The Red Devils who trailed by as many as 10 points in the fourth quarter, cut the deficit to two late with back-to-back three pointers.

Marion-Franklin, who ends the season at 10-11, were led by Marquiez Lawrence with 10 and Demetrius Walker with 14.


HIGH SCHOOL BOUNCE: East hangs on to beat South, 63-59 in City League crossover game


In our Tuesday night edition of HIGH SCHOOL BOUNCE, we had a City League crossover game between, the South Bulldogs of the South Division at the East Tigers of the North Division.

The Tigers held on with a 63-59 escape over South.

Darius White scored 21 points to lead the way followed by James Davis with 18 as host East improves to 8-12 on the season.

South drops to 6-14 on the season. Quite an improvement in 2012. Last year at this time the Bulldogs were winless heading into the OHSAA playoffs. Ramon Spears, their head coach is doing a solid job.

The game marked Senior night for the East team. The home crowd honored the four-year players with a thanks for the memories reflection with the program. Leaving after the season will be Torre’ Smith, White, David Dorsey and Hasan Strothers-Harris.

The visiting Bulldogs started slowly, while the Tigers led 17-10 after one quarter, with White leading the way with seven points.

One of the reasons that East controlled the first half of play and led at the half, 30-22, was that they held South center, 6’8 Ellis Williams scoreless and he had to leave the game early with two quick fouls. With Williams out of the game, Davis scored six points in the second quarter.

The pace of the game picked up in the 3rd quarter as South got Williams back in the game and involved in the offense with eight points, but they trailed by 14 at 42-28. But South cut the lead down to only 4 points with a 14-4 run to end the third quarter trailing 46-42.

In the fourth quarter, the Bulldogs took control and led by four at 55-51 on two Deone Lindsay free throws with 3:24 to go in regulation.

From that point on the East Tigers used their press and drives to the basket to get fouled and won the game at the free throw line.

The Buckeye Muffler & Brake Shop Player of the Game was East High senior White.

An interesting twist to this game is that both schools are in Division II and in the upcoming OHSAA tournament, the two teams will play each other at Dublin Scioto on Wednesday, February 22 at 7:45 pm.

Game report from Sloan Kitteridge

The West Cowboys have been improving as a team in the past month.

But win wins are tough to come by, they probably did not want to play the South Division’s defending champions and the City League’s only undefeated team in the Walnut Ridge Scots.

The Scots rolled to a 121-53 rout at West on Friday evening.

The game was over before the crowd could get comfortable in their seats.

Walnut Ridge, now 14-0, 10-0 in the City South, rolled up a 26-9 first quarter lead; a 61-15 halftime advantage; 85-22 at the end of three and a 36 fourth quarter ended the contest.

The Scots had a nice distribution of scoring with Roy Alexander leading the way with 17, Rob Wheelwright with 14, and Allasane Kah with 13.

The Cowboys drop to 0-16, 0-10 in the South.
