Hatchets cage Lions in dominant win Saturday


“Right now, it’s just like every time somebody presses us or traps us we’re in a panic mode, just like a deer in the headlights, we don’t know which way to go,” added Wagoner.

The contest was tight early, with the Hatchets holding a 7-5 lead after one quarter and 21-14 at halftime, with Washington’s Jarrod Purdue scoring nine of his team high 12 points in the first half. But as the Lion turnovers mounted and the Washington offense began to heat up, the Hatchets took control, outscoring Loogootee 19-10 in the third quarter to take a 40-24 lead into the final eight minutes of action.

Miiller liked how his team played on both ends of the court. All nine Hatchets who played made it into the scoring column, and Washington got balanced scoring from its starters (37 points) and its bench (27 points).

“I thought the effort was really good throughout the ballgame, from all nine guys that played. I thought the effort was really good. We made some mistakes here and there, but I really liked what I saw,” said Miiller. “Offensively we moved the basketball well. We had a couple of turnovers early, but after that we settled in and moved the ball well and got good shots.”

After Purdue, Matthew Stephens added 10 points off the bench, followed by nine from reserve Jake Bedwell. Austin Ghirardelli netted nine points, followed by six points each from Colton Garland and Tyler Stoll. Connor Brown scored five points, with Andy Garland scoring four points and Jacob Overton adding three markers.

Washington committed just six turnovers and shot 27-58 (47 percent) compared to 38 percent (9-24) for the Lions. Stoll led the Hatchets, who outrebounded the Lions 24-23, with eight boards, followed by six from Purdue and five from Bedwell.

Hayden Bell led the Lions in scoring with 13 points, followed by eight from Dylan Street and seven from Gabe Nolley. Jayce Wagoner’s six rebounds led the Lion effort off the glass.
