Landin scores 1000th as Big Green stay undefeated

OTTOVILLE, OH – A big win over rival Ottawa Glandorf got bigger for Ottoville on Thursday night as senior Bridget Landin notched her 1,000th point in a 54-48 victory over the previously unbeaten Titans at L.W. Heckman Gymnasium in front of a packed house.

Landin, the future Findlay Oiler scored her 1,000th career point with 3:34 remaining in the fourth quarter from the free throw line to give her team a 45-39 advantage in the closing minutes of her teams win before adding three more points to finish the night with 1,003 total career markers.

In reaching the milestone on Thursday evening, Landin becomes the seventh player in Big Green history to accomplish the feat and joins a list that includes Sue Honigford, Melanie Miller, Tracy Wenzlick, Karla Wenzlick, Stacey Wannemacher, and most recently former Bowling Green Falcon Abby Siefker who played for Ottoville from 2010-13.

Behind a strong defensive performance from a future BGSU Falcon in Kadie Hempling, Landin was held scoreless until mid-way through the third quarter but saw her teammates respond with points from behind the arc and the free throw line to push them ahead of OG heading after the first period of play 14-12.

Trailing by two entering the second quarter the Titans (6-1) trailed for just :36 in the period before a three pointer from Hempfling gave them a 15-14 advantage they would carry into the halftime break at 26-18. Three pointers in the stanza from Carri Johnson, Brianna Schimmoeller, and Kasey Ellerbrock helped to fuel an Ottawa Glandorf run that helped hold Ottoville to just four quarter points and one make from the field.

Ottawa Glandorf found themselves on their heels in the third period as they were held to seven points in the quarter as the Ottoville defense clamped down on the basketball. Offensively the Big Green got strong quarters from Quinley Schlagbaum and Bridget Landin who also combined to finish 6/6 in the period from the charity stripe.

Perhaps the biggest shot for Ottoville in the third quarter came at the end of it as Abi Hilvers who had already connected on a deep shot from behind the arc in the third nailed a second deep three pointer as time expired to push the Ottoville advantage to 41-33 heading into the final eight minutes of play.

Kasey Knippen and Haley Hoersten continued the three point barrage for Ottoville in the final period as they dropped in the sixth and seventh makes of the night to help push the teams lead out to 10 with two minutes to play at 51-41.

Having not lost a regular season game in their last 30 outings, the Titans would not go away quietly. Behind the duo of Hempfling and Ashley Schroeder scoring wise the Titans pulled their deficit to just four with minutes to go before the Big Green would salt the game away by hitting on 5/7 free throws in the period to secure their six point win.

OG was led on the night in the scoring column by Hempfling (16), and Schroeder (15) while the Ottoville was headed by junior sharpshooter Kasey Knippen who finished with 13 and connected on a trio from beyond the arc.

The Titans will be back in action on Saturday afternoon as they take on Marion Local at home. Ottoville (8-0) has now won 18 straight regular season games dating back to the middle of last season when they were beaten by Bath, a team who will come to visit the Big Green on January 9th, 2018.

Prichard joins 1,000 point club in Bearcat win

SPENCERVILLE, OH – Dakota Prichard pumped in 29 points for Spencerville and helped his squad improve to 9-3 on the season Monday night as the Bearcats downed visiting Ottoville 73-56.

Prichard, a 6’4 Senior entered play Monday night needing 21 points to become just the sixth member of the schools 1,000 point club. Seven points in the opening eight minutes found their way on the board for the Bearcat leading scorer this season but it was an eight point first period from classmate Bailey Croft that helped push Spencerville to a 21-11 lead at the first quarter stoppage.

Ottoville responded to their opponents markers shot for shot in the second stanza as the Big Green outscored Spencerville 18-11 to trim the halftime lead to just three at 32-29 at the buzzer on a three point goal from Nick Moorman. Five first half shots from deep for Ottoville dropped in the hoop as Todd Turnwald’s crew were led by Moorman, Logan Kemper, and Eric Von Sossan’s makes.

In the third period the Bearcats added four shots from deep themselves including one from Prichard that beat the quarter buzzer and sent the home fans into a frenzy when it was announced that the make put Dakota at exactly 1,000 points and gave the home team a 56-42 lead.

Moorman finished the game with 26 points for the Big Green and did a lot of his damage from the free throw line in the second half as he connected on 6/7 in the final two quarters to couple along with a pair of shots from inside the arc and a late three for half of his scores on the evening.

Along with Prichard the Bearcats added two in double figures as the duo of Gary Schrolucke (12) and Bailey Croft (18) helped Spencerville secure their 11th win in 14 all-time meetings with their Route 66 Putnam County League foes.

Ottoville sees their record fall to 7-5 on the season with the loss and will travel to Miller City on Friday night in an attempt to hand the defending PCL winners their first conference loss of the season. Spencerville, the leaders of the Northwest Conference at 3-0 welcome Allen East to the Walk-In Closet Friday night for a league battle before Arlington finishes a three game home-stand for the Bearcats on Saturday night.

The previous five members of the Bearcat 1,000 point scoring club feature four players coached by current mentor Kevin Sensabaugh, who himself is a club member along with Zach Goecke, Logan Nourse (schools all-time leading scorer at 1500 points), Isaac Bowers and now Dakota Prichard. The remaining member of the group for the Bearcats to accomplish the feat is Mick Miller.

Titans win battle of unbeatens

OTTAWA, OH – Just as they did on the road last Thursday night the OG Titans got behind early but were able to put together a late rally to remain unbeaten. Thursday night the Titan ladies handed previously unbeaten Ottoville their first defeat of the year 46-42 in front of a capacity crowd inside the Supreme Court.

Alexis Thorbahn and CJ Kemper got the scoring started early for the visiting Big Green, but the Titans surged back with five players tossing in points to close out the first quarter and found themselves on top 15-7 at the end of the opening period.

Ottoville turned up the pressure on the Titans in the second quarter and saw five of their own players hit the scoring column as they outscored the home squad 17-6 and headed into the lockerroom with a 24-21 halftime advantage. Thorbahn, a 5’9 Senior led the way for the Big Green in the second stanza as she connected on a three pointer to give her team the lead and a two point bucket to help them push their advantage with five of her nine first half points coming in the second.

As they have done repeatedly during 5th year Head Coach Troy Yant’s tenure the Titan ladies came out with a renewed defensive intensity in the second half’s early moments and turned many of their opponents miscues directly into points on the opposite end. Ottoville staved off a 6-0 run by OG late in the third quarter and were able to send the game to the final eight minutes with their score ahead of the home team 33-29.

Sophomore guards Erin Kaufman and Ashley Schroeder gave and helped to extend the OG lead midway through the final quarter as the duo connected on a trio of shots from behind the arc on three straight trips down the floor for the Titans who jumped on top 36-32 heading into a timeout by Ottoville Head Coach Dave Klemen with just under six and a half minutes remaining.

Late in the period Ottoville’s CJ Kemper connected on a three pointer to give the Big Green a 39-38 lead, but it was not to be as the Titans finished the game on a 7-4 run to secure the 46-42 victory to remain unbeaten.

Looking for a bit of size to counter the height of the Big Green the Titans gave 5’11 Sophomore Paige Sutter her first career start and saw the bit of strategy pay off as she scored a career high five points in the opening period and gave the Titans a big presence inside early on.

Ottawa Glandorf (7-0) was led in scoring by Kaufman and Kylie White who finished with 10 points each. The Titans are off until Wednesday, December 28th when they welcome Liberty Benton to town.

Ottoville (6-1) suffers their first setback of the season but will only have to wait until Monday when they take on Wayne Trace to attempt to get back to their winning ways. The Big Green were led in scoring by CJ Kemper who finished with a game high 13 markers.

4 in double figures lead Ottoville past LB

OTTOVILLE, OH – Four players for Ottoville finished in double figures as the Big Green picked up their 20th win of the regular season 54-50 over visiting Liberty Benton Saturday afternoon.

In just the fourth all-time meeting between two teams who are perennial contenders for their respective divisions state championships it was the Eagles and Nicolette DeVincentis who came out firing early on. DeVincentis, a Senior guard headed to play her college basketball at St. Joseph College in Indiana tossed in nine of her squads 15 quarter points and helped LB amass a 15-12 advantage at the end of the opening stanza.

Despite having a handful of players in foul trouble early on in the second quarter the Big Green were able to make a run by virtue of the three pointer as four players connected from deep in the first half, led by a pair of triples from Alexis Thorbahn to take their first lead. Behind a pair of timely baskets from Brooke Mangas and CJ Kemper the home team pushed their advantage to 26-21 at the halftime break.

In the third quarter it was the Eagles who found themselves in foul trouble as Freshman guard Savanah Richards and Junior Jensen Heigel picked up their third and fourth fouls respectively and were forced to sit at different times. With one less foul than her counterpart, Richards did most of her damage to the Ottoville defense in the games penultimate quarter as she hit on 3/4 from the free throw line and scored 9 of her 11 points on the day. Not to be outdone however, DeVincentis finished 5/5 from the line and with 7 of her game high 18 points in helping the visitors lead 42-41 at the buzzer before the final period.

If there is one mark of a Dave Klemen coached squad over the years it is their ability to shoot free throws. Ottoville entered the afternoon shooting 69% as a team and did themselves no disservice in the final half of play as they connected on 14/16 charity tosses. Coupled with a gritty effort on the defensive end in the final eight minutes the Big Green were able to hold on for a 54-50 non-conference win in their last game before the OHSAA Tournament begins.

Brooke Mangas led Ottoville’s four double digit scorers on the afternoon with 11 points while CJ Kemper, Alexis Thorbahn and leading scorer Bridget Landin all tossed in 10 points to help the Big Green finish at 20-2. Ottoville will begin their tournament run on Wednesday night at 6:15pm at Findlay High School as they take on league foe Continental in a game that will be broadcast live on Zsportslive.com.

Leipsic, OG, Grove, PG, Ottoville all advance

By virture of their wins in Putnam County on Saturday night, Leipsic and Pandora Gilboa added dates next Thursday night in Allen County against Ottoville and Crestview respectively.

On the back of a 25 point night from Senior forward Megan Maag, the Rockets capped off the night at Ottawa Glandorf’s Robert J. Hermiller Gymnasium in which they could seemingly do no wrong.

Pandora jumped out to an early lead in the first quarter behind Maag who would go on to score her 1,000th point in the 3rd quarter and never looked back (Hear the call of it here: http://t.co/lm8ZfjtOKZ).

After the first quarter the scoreboard read Pandora 14-10 over McComb, a team the Rockets have now beaten twice this season. At the half the Rockets led 26-10. Pandora would push their advantage to 43-29 after three stanzas and finish it off with a 57-38 win.

With the win the Rockets improve to 16-8 on the season while McComb behind a big night from Emily Clymer finish their 2013-14 campaign at 12-12.

Thursday night at 6:15pm it will be second seeded Pandora Gilboa against top seeded Crestview. The game can be heard live on www.zsportslive.com

In the earlier contest of the night the Leipsic Vikings picked up win #20 as they dispatched the Miller City Wildcats 55-35.

Leipsic jumped out to a quick 7-0 lead and led 36-13 at the half. In the contest Amber Gerdeman went well over her 12ppg average as she had 23 points in the win that will set up a rematch between the Vikings and the Ottoville Big Green that was won just a few weeks ago by the Vikings that denied Ottoville their 5th straight PCL title.

Ottoville will meet Leipsic at 8pm in the 2nd game at Lima Senior High School on Thursday night following completion of the Crestview/PG game. The Big Green racked up another sectional title with a 58-53 win over Kalida in Van Wert to earn themselves a rematch with the top ranked Vikings.

Two other Putnam County League schools also got an opportunity to cut down nets on Saturday night as the Columbus Bulldogs were victorious in Wapakoneta over the Allen East Mustangs 55-37 behind another big game at Wapak for Julia Wynn, and the Ottawa Glandorf Titans were winners as well 68-33 over Bluffton in the Riverdale sectional.

Ottawa Glandorf and Columbus Grove will meet in Elida on Thursday night in Division 3 Tournament action at the Fieldhouse with a 6:15pm tipoff that can be heard on www.zsportslive.com as well with Dave Boninsegna on the call.
