Tigers tame Falcons

Cold shooting does in Jefferson vs. Newton Falls


JEFFERSON — noted the Falcon chances with the ball that didn’t drop.

“I think, defensively, we got into some ruts during the game that hurt us,” he said. “We just couldn’t keep them (Jefferson) from penetrating up the middle. We had some defensive lapses when they scored inside, but we also were fortunate that their shots weren’t falling.”

Balance wsa the key for Newton Falls (6-7, 4-1 in All-American Conference). Hawkins led them in scoring with 14 points, including 8 of 8 from the line in the last 8:32 of the game. His nine assists also the team.

Greathouse added 11, including a trio of treys, Jarrod Crowder chipped in with 12, 10 in the second half on 4-5 shooting in the third period, and Jaden Walton and Mike Staton each had nine.

The Falcons couldn’t hit the easy shots they had in the first period, got behind by double digits much of the ball game, but made it tight in the fourth. They cut the lead to eight, 45-37, after three periods as Brett Powers hit a layup off a pass from Jacob Hamilton at the buzzer to facilitate a conventional three-point play, but Hawkins sealed the deal and killed every Falcon thrust in the last quarter as Jefferson falls to 4-9, 2-4.

Powers tallied 14 points before fouling out with a minute to play. Jacob Adams played a power game inside with 12 points and five rebounds and Lucas Hitchcock added nine points.

“I felt Brett played a solid game for us,” Huber said. “We just missed way too many layups.”

  • Tribe Not quite enough

    Although the Indians are still very much mathematically alive in the race for a postseason berth, they continue not to look like a playoff team. And when they have put a run together, they haven’t been able to maintain the habit of playing winning baseball.
