Boys hoopsters lose to Stillwater

D espite three out of four evenly matched quarters, the Granville boys basketball team took a 75-60 loss to Stillwater Friday night.

Coach Duane Dodge saw his team play strongly in some aspects, but he thought the team’s youth left the boys with some catching up to do.

“They played well on the offensive end, but we really have a lot to learn on the defensive side,” Dodge said.

Dodge said the second quarter is the one the team really lost, when Stillwater took an 18 point lead. For the rest of the game, however, the Horde matched up every point made against them with a basket on the opposite end of the court.

Reaching above many other players for shots in the net, senior Jared Beattie was a key scorer.

“That’s the guy we’re going to be leaning on offensively,” Dodge said. He added that Stillwater has historically played well.

“Stillwater has always been a very strong defensive team, so that’s why I was pleased with what we did getting 60 points,” Dodge said.
