Hatchets drop close one to Ellettsville

ELLETTSVILLE – Washington saw a five-point lead with less than a minute to play go by the wayside as Edgewood defeated the Hatchets 40-39 on Friday.

Washington (0-2) led 39-34 with :50 to play in the game following a pair of free throws from Austin Ghirardelli. But Clayton Settle of Edgewood (1-2) drew a foul and hit both free throws with :42 left to cut the Hatchet lead to two.

A Hatchet turnover – one of seven Washington miscues in the fourth quarter – quickly gave the ball back to the Mustangs. Edgewood took quick advantage as Settle was fouled on a made basket with :35 on the clock. Settle, who led the Mustangs with 17 points on the night, made the charity toss to knot the score at 39-39.

Following a Hatchet timeout, Washington worked for the last shot of regulation, but Colton Garland, who led the Hatchets with 17 points, was stripped of the ball at the top of the key with :04 to play. Garland raced back on defense and prevented Edgewood’s Tommy Black from hitting the game winning layup but fouled Black with three tenths of a second on the clock. Following a WHS timeout, Black hit the first free throw to seal the win for Edgewood.

For Washington coach Gene Miiller, it was a game that his team should have won.

“It’s very frustrating. We just didn’t take care of the basketball. We had five guards out there and we had 17 turnovers, 12 in the second half,” said Miiller. “We just don’t play very strong with the ball. We did a good job on the boards (23-16 rebounding advantage), we just didn’t do much offensively all night.

“We just have to get better offensively, were just not clicking right now offensively. We have to find someone who can hit shots and get him shots,” said Miiller. “We let this one get away from us. We definitely should have won. For 30 minutes we played well enough to win.”
