Falcons, Bulldogs advance
The first quarter was everything the Falcons could have hoped for. The lead built in that frame gave Ingomar the momentum needed to take an 82-52 win over Montgomery County on Tuesday.
Henry Foster seemed unstoppable, going 4-for-4 from behind the arc and posting 17 points in the first quarter, pacing the Falcons to a 31-6 lead. The second quarter went to the Hornets, who out scored Ingomar, 22-13, but Ingomar pieced together a good second half to pick up the win.
“We played a really good first quarter, a lousy second quarter and two pretty good quarters in the second half,” Falcons head coach Jonathan Ashley said. “Henry’s made incredibly large amounts of shots for us this year, and he was open with some good looks. That always gets us off to a good start. Hopefully we can carry that over to Thursday night.”
Foster finished with a game high 32 points, followed by 12 points from Alex Jeter and 11 points from both Devonte Williamson and Sam Cobb.
Tyus Clay led the Hornets with 20 points, followed by Marquis Gunn with 16.
Next for Ingomar was a north half tournament match up with Biggersville. With Tuesday’s win, Ingomar hosts this weekend’s 1A north half tournament.
“Thursday night against Biggersville, we’ll have to play well in order to have a chance, and we need to be a little more focused,” Ashley said. “It’s an exciting time of the year, especially if you get to host it. It will be a quick turnaround, and it’s exciting.”
Bulldogs down Greenwood in double overtime
It took two over time periods and an 19 point performance from Eric Chaney to move the Bulldogs on to the next round with a 63-60 win over Greenwood.
The Bulldogs trailed 52-50 late in the game, preceding a three-pointer from Jarel Lipsey that put the ‘Dawgs ahead by one with 10 seconds remaining in regulation.
Lipsey later missed a shot at the buzzer in the first overtime period, but the Bulldogs out scored Greenwood, 7-4, in the second overtime to take the win.
Harrison Harding added 12 points for New Albany, followed by 11 points from J.T. Moore.
The Bulldogs advanced to the north half tournament at Corinth, taking on the host team on Thursday.
Urchins season ends
Broderick Montgomery had a big second half performance for East Union, but that was not enough to come back against Simmons.
The Urchins dropped the 65-46 decision on the road, with Montgomery finishing with 14 pints to lead East Union. 12 of those points came off of three-pointers made in the second half.
