Lions cruise past Cardinals



The Lions won their fourth consecutive quarter by winning the final quarter 16-4. Wagoner was pleased to see his bench get increased playing time along with nearly the same level of productivity as the starters showcased earlier in the night.

"We said we were going to play a lot of people, and some guys that are going to help us in the tournament run," Wagoner said. "Hayden Bell, Waylon Matthews and Darian Stewart all three came in and contributed really well. I was happy to see those guys come in and be a positive factor."

In addition to Mathies' 18 points, Loogootee got 10 points apiece from Cam Wagler and Colin Nelson. Will Nonte added nine points and Conner Wittmer scored seven points.

Howell said a game like this is important to show his team that they need to continue to work and finish off the season on a positive note. TJ Hill and Brendan Purdue led the Cardinals with six points apiece.

"I think we're a better team than what we've been showing," Howell said. "We need to get back to some fundamentals. We don't block anybody out, we don't keep the ball in front of us. We have been coasting in practice, when you're struggling you kind of get relaxed, and quit giving effort. We still have four games left."

In the final stretch run, Loogootee has the opportunity to win the Blue Chip Conference outright, and head into the Class A Sectional 63 with a head of steam as the Lions look to defend their first ever state championship.

"When we got Barr-Reeve down at their place we really said now this is in our hands to win this outright," Wagoner said. "We have one more game with North Knox, it's senior night, Coaches vs. Cancer night. Our focus is to win that game, but first we have to focus on Jasper, which is a great game for us at this time of year."
