Titans win 9th straight

OTTAWA, OH – Ottawa Glandorf jumped out to a 17 point first quarter lead and never looked back Thursday night as they dispatched Shawnee 70-45 to move to 6-0 in Western Buckeye League action.

Led by a season high 17 points from junior Erin Kaufman the Titans offense was rolling early as they blitzed out to a 21-4 first quarter advantage.

With scores by seven different players and three pointers from three of those the OG offense was clicking early, but it was the defense that was most impressive for the home team. For their part Shawnee was forced to play loose with the basketball as they accounted for 13 first half turnovers.

Scoring wise the second period was much better for the visiting Indians as they accounted for 16 markers, but still found themselves down 17 at the break 37-20. Nearly all of Shawnee’s scoring in the stanza came from the duo of All-WBL pick Alissa Stahler and Eliyana Floyd who combined for 11 of their 21 game markers.

As they have done for most of the season the Titans got solid contributions from their bench in the contest led by Kasey Ellerbrock who hit on a trio of three pointers in the game and finished with a career high 11, 8 of those coming in the first 16 minutes.

In the second half the OG offense continued to get points on steals and quick rebounds turned into run outs, a staple of Ottawa Glandorf’s game and outscored their opponents 33-25 to secure their 6th victory in as many tries in the Western Buckeye League.

Kadie Hempfling helped to push the pace for her squad in the second half as she added a pair of dazzling layups and a three pointer in the third quarter for seven of her 15 points. Along with the scoring the future Falcon handed out five assists and nabbed five rebounds in the game for the third ranked Titans.

Ottawa Glandorf (15-1, 6-0) will travel to Lima on Saturday afternoon for a date with the Lima Senior Spartans in a game that can be heard live on WZOQ Radio at 1:30pm.

Shawnee (8-8, 2-4) was led in scoring by Stahler who ended the game with 15. The Indians will next play host to Coldwater on Tuesday night in non-conference action.

Titans and Wildcats secure District births

LEIPSIC, OH – While Ottawa Glandorf dominated in the early game the Bath Wildcats survived a battle in the late game at Leipsic High School Saturday night as both earned a matchup against one another next week in the District Semifinals.

Ten players scored for top ranked OG (23-0) as they moved within one game of the school record for consecutive wins with a 66-30 triumph over Shawnee.

5’9 senior Kylie White scored six of her game high 24 markers in the first quarter and moved her career total to 988 points in an effort to become just the third Titan to achieve the 1,000 point plateau. White also finished the contest with a double double before leaving to a standing ovation from her teams fans by snagging 10 rebounds.

Leading 13-6 after the first stanza the Titans forced the Indians into 16 turnovers in the opening two quarters and extended their lead out to 34-15 at the break behind 11 from White, 7 from Lexi Schroeder, and a second three pointer in the game from Sophomore Erin Kaufman.

Shawnee who sees their season finish at 7-16 was able to utilize a handful of OG miscues in the third quarter and turn them into points on their own offensive end as Alissa Stahler and DeAsia Smith combined to score nine of the 11 Indian points in the period.

Six of the ten players who scored for OG in the game did so in the fourth quarter. Four Titans (Devon Warnecke, Mackenzie Meyer, Brianna Schimmoeller, Kasey Ellerbrock) connected on a three pointer in the last eight minutes and helped the WBL Champions finish off a 66-30 victory and the rights to cut down the nets when the buzzer sounded.

Courtney Bockrath (7), Schimmoeller (5), and Ellerbrock (3) all posted career highs on the evening for the Titans who would force 35 turnovers on the evening en route to the victory.

The late game at Leipsic started slow offensively for both teams in the first quarter and was a slug fest for the final three. St. Marys (14-10) was unable to put a stop to a late Bath rally as the Wildcats (16-7) move on with a 48-38 victory.

Bath’s Bailey Dackin scored the first quarters only marker from the field to give the Wildcats a 2-1 advantage after the Roughriders reached the board first on a Makenna Mele free throw. Heidi Craddock hit 1/2 from the line late in the opening eight minutes and put the Wildcats on top 3-1 at the first quarter stoppage.

Just seconds into the second stanza St. Marys Junior Sydney Cisco connected on a pair of free throws to give the Riders a short lived 4-3 advantage.

With the ballgame resembling something more along the lines of a track meet in the middle of the quarter a moment of history was made as St. Marys leading scorer Shania Taylor became the 8th member of the schools 1,000 point club and the second Roughrider this season (Derek Jay vs Leipsic) to score their 1,000th career point at Leipsic High School when she hit a runner to push her team back ahead of Bath.

Trailing 18-13 after a furious first half finish for their opponents, the Wildcats blitzed by the Riders in the third stanza as they outscored them by a 19-7 margin led by six markers from Lindsay Singhaus and with six players scoring overall.

Free throws were the story of the fourth quarter as Bath was able to stave off a late Roughrider run by hitting on 10/12 from the charity stripe and earn a date in the District Semifinals with a 48-38 victory.

Thursday night the Wildcats will take on Ottawa Glandorf in the early game from Paulding High School while the late contest will feature another regular season rematch between Wapak and Defiance with the winners of each game meeting on Saturday night at 7pm in the same venue.

Defense again shines in Titan win

LIMA, OH – Another game another strong defensive effort out of the gate for the Ottawa Glandorf Lady Titans leads the #1 team in Ohio’s Division 2 rankings to their 15th win over the season, 57-38 over Shawnee.

OG jumped out to a quick 12-0 lead in the first stanza as they forced a handful of Indian turnovers and turned them directly into fast break markers en route to a 21-6 advantage at the end of the opening eight minutes of play. Kylie White and Kadie Hempfling each scored six for the Titans in the period while Lexi Schroder tossed in five.

Shawnee’s first points of the ballgame came from 5’10 Junior and leading scorer Alissa Stahler who connected on a jumper with 2:42 remaining in the first to cut into the visiting squads lead.

Things didn’t get much better for Shawnee coach Jeff Heistan’s crew in the second quarter as the turnovers continued to pile up alongside the Titan point total. Erin Kaufman scored 7 of her 9 half points in the second quarter including her 21st three pointer of the season to help push the advantage out to 32-15 when the clock hit triple zeroes.

Allie Boone was a bright spot for the Indians in the second as she tossed in 7 of her team high 15 points including a three pointer of her own.

Kinsey Heistan’s three pointer from feet behind the arc early in the third period would help pull Shawnee closer to their opponents, but also represented the only points not to come from the free throw line where her team went 5/8 in the quarter.

Kadie Hempfling’s second quarter of scoring six points gave OG a 47-23 lead headed to the final stanza but it was Ashley Schroeder’s three pointer that provided one of the highlight reel plays in the quarter for the Titans.

The Indians finished the game with 31 turnovers on the evening but did find themselves outscoring OG 15-10 in the fourth quarter. Lexi Schroeder’s three pointer midway through the period helped her finish with a dozen markers on the evening and put the final touches on a 57-38 Ottawa Glandorf victory.

OG (15-0, 5-0) remained as the Western Buckeye League’s only unbeaten team with the win thanks to a 46-22 victory from Bath on the evening over Wapak that sees both teams behind the defending league champions at 4-1 in WBL play. The Titans will play host to Miami East on Saturday afternoon starting with a noon JV tilt inside the Supreme Court in Ottawa.

Shawnee (5-9, 0-5) saw their first eight possessions of the game go as turnovers Thursday night, they will next take on Kenton on January, 26th in a Western Buckeye League contest.

2nd quarter run surges Titans to 5-0 in WBL

OTTAWA, OH – One of the biggest quarters in Lady Titan basketball history helped OG stay undefeated Thursday night as they surged past visiting Shawnee 73-47.

Leading 23-16 after the first quarter the Titans turned up their defensive pressure on the Indians and outscored Shawnee by a 31-8 margin to push their lead to 54-24 at the halftime break. In the quarter the Titans found themselves on a 14-0 run where they could seemingly not miss, finishing the half by connecting on 19/23 shots from the field along with 10/11 from the free throw line.

Shawnee’s Ijah Austin actually gave her team a 2-0 lead in the early moments of the game but a run by OG fueled by 8 points from Lexi Schroeder put a stop to OG trailing in the game and gave the Titans a lead they would not again relinquish.

Of the 31 points the Titans found themselves with on the Supreme Court scoreboard in the second period 13 came from Sophomore Kadie Hempfling who was forced to sit in the first quarter after picking up a pair of quick fouls on the defensive end. Dani Ellerbrock utilized a pair of OG steals en route to four of her nine markers in the period and also drained a long three pointer from straight away. In all the Titans connected on 6/8 first half shots from deep.

Grace O’Connor’s trio of three pointers in the second half helped pull Shawnee closer, but it was not to be as despite 13 points from gritty point guard DeAsia Smith the Indians would fall and see their record drop to 3-10 on the season.

Ottawa Glandorf was led in scoring by Hempfling’s 22 points and were backed up by a balanced effort as 7 of her teammates etched their name in the scoring column as well. The Titans record improves to 12-1 on the year and the win keeps them as the WBL’s only unblemished squad at 5-0. OG, ranked #5 in Division 2’s first AP Poll of the season will travel to Lima to take on the Lima Senior High Spartans on Saturday at 1:30pm.

Shawnee falls to 1-4 in Western Buckeye League play and will travel to Coldwater for a non-league affair on Saturday afternoon.

Titans cruise past Indians

Ottawa Glandorf built a big lead on a 22-4 second quarter run at Shawnee Thursday and used it to defeat the Indians 60-33.

Despite a 15-11 first quarter score, the Shawnee Indians struggled in the first half as they had 15 shots to go along with 15 turnovers in the half.

Shooting was not a problem for OG in the second period as they were able to turn defensive takeaways into points quickly on the offensive end. Freshman Kadie Hempfling proved to be one of the Titans biggest threats on both ends of the floor as she accounted for all 11 of her points off the bench in the first half to help her squad to a 37-15 advantage at the halftime break.

Rachel Evans got it going for the home team in the third quarter as she drilled a trio of shots behind the line to close the gap for the Indians momentarily to just 16 before the Titans were able to push the lead to 51-29 at the end of three behind 14 quarter points from Erin Basinger, Danielle Schroeder, and Kylie White.

Of the ten players to score for OG on the night, none got the visiting crowd out of their seat more than Kenzie Meyer’s jumper from the corner, her ensuing layup or a bucket by fellow frosh Carri Johnson. The buckets by the aforementioned young ladies were the first (and in Meyer’s case second as well) of their young varsity careers. Kianna Siefker would go 1/2 from the line in the final period to add one of the last points to the 60-33 victory.

Shawnee would only be able to muster 4 points again in the last 8:00 as Ashley Medsker and Tess Baird accounted for buckets for the Indians (4-8, 1-3 WBL) who are off until Tuesday when they travel to take on Fort Jennings in a non-conference tilt. Ottawa Glandorf was led in scoring by Hempfling with 11 and will have to wait just two days before they play next, a Saturday afternoon non-conference matchup at home against Bowling Green that can be heard live on www.zsportslive.com at approximately 2:15pm.

Scoring:

OG (60):

Kadie Hempfling 11
Danielle Schroeder 10 (1 3 pointer)
Kylie White 9
Erin Basinger 8
Anna Bellman 5
Elissa Ellerbrock 5 (1 3 pointer)
