Barr-Reeve stays undefeated with win over Orleans

MONTGOMERY — It wasn’t pretty, but it was just good enough for the top ranked team in Indiana’s Class A to stay undefeated.

Class A No. 1 Barr-Reeve (8-0) defeated Orleans (5-3) 50-40 in game that took more than a half to reach the pace many expected at the outset. The Vikings were led by junior Addison Wagler who scored a game-high 17 points Thursday night at Kavanaugh Kourt.

After playing to a surprising 16-all tie at halftime, the Bulldogs came out stronger in the second half to take a 24-20 with just under five minutes to play in the third quarter. Barr-Reeve coach Bryan Hughes took a timeout to get his team refocused and whatever he said in the huddle got the Vikings going. Over the last 4:51 of the quarter, Barr-Reeve outscored Orleans 10-0, as the Vikings got a basket each from Wagler, Micah Bullock, Chris Wittmer and Logan Lengacher, along with two free throws from Duncan Roy to take a 30-24 lead into the fourth quarter.

Two Bullock 3-pointers early in the fourth quarter helped Barr-Reeve build a 38-26 lead with 5:41 to play in regulation, effectively ending the Bulldogs’ upset bid.

“It was a struggle all night on the offensive end and give Orleans some credit,” said Barr-Reeve coach Bryan Hughes. “This team was 5-2 and I know they didn’t play very well up at the Graber Post Buildings Classic, but they came in here with a plan and I thought they executed it well. They were patient, they hit some timely shots and we’ll take the win and go on.”

Wagler led the Vikings with 17 points, Duncan Roy had 13, Bullock added 10, Chris Wittmer had five points, Logan Lengacher added four points off the bench and Logan James scored three points. Cale Hall led Orleans with 16 points and Steven Phillips added 10 points.
