Flyers soar to state

KETTERING, OH – Marion Local utilized a hot start for the second time in as many games on Friday night at Trent Arena in Kettering to propel themselves to a 62-47 win over Fort Loramie and into next weeks Division 4 State semifinals.

Tyler Prenger, a 31.7% three point shooter on the season put the Flyers ahead early in the opening quarter as he nailed a pair of his five three point goals on the evening that propelled his team to a 15-4 first period lead.

For nearly the first 13 minutes of the opening half the Redskins were unable to connect on a field goal with the stingy defense provided by their opponents. Eli Rosengarten pulled his team to within 18-7 with 3:57 to go in the second quarter with a deep left wing three pointer for the first Fort Loramie field goal of the night. An Evan Berning two pointer made it a 12 point game with 1:45 left in the opening period and represented the closest the Shelby County League tri-champions would get through the first 16 minutes.

With just seconds to go in the second stanza Marion Local’s Matt Rethman connected on a deep corner three pointer to put his team ahead 26-13.

In the games penultimate stanza the Redskins hit on four field goals from four different players but saw their opponent continue to run away as Prenger again knocked down a shot from deep to keep the Flyers lead at 11 heading into the final quarter.

Dillon Braun knocked down four of his teams seven threes in the final period and finished with a team high 19 as the Redskins continued to not give up and used their pressure to force Flyer turnovers.

With their chance to play on the floor at Ohio State on the line for the final handful of minutes Marion Local connected on 14 of their 21 tosses from the charity stripe and watched as Tyler Prenger, Nate Bruns, and Matt Rethman combined to hit 12/16 free throws and finish the game with a combined 50 points.

Marion Local (23-4) avenged and earlier season loss at Fort Loramie with the victory and will play Pandora Gilboa on Thursday evening at 2pm at the Schott. The Redskins bow out on the year at 25-3.

Flyers, Redskins advance to finals

KETTERING, OH – Fort Loramie and Marion Local each posted wins on Tuesday night at Trent Arena in Kettering and will now meet for a trip to Columbus next week on Friday night.

Marion Local jumped out to a big first quarter lead and never looked back in their game, winning 55-33 over Springfield Catholic Central in the opener while Fort Loramie staved off a late Russia run to down their SCAL mates 48-45.

Nate Bruns got things going quickly for the Flyers in the first quarter as he connected for a pair of three pointers before Justin Albers tossed in a shot from beyond the arc of his own. Marion Local pushed their end of the first quarter lead to 17-5 just before the buzzer as they connected on a two point jumper.

Despite shooting just 6/18 from the field in the first half the Irish pulled to within 23-16 at the halftime stoppage behind a balanced attack that included a pair of three point makes of their own from the duo of Trey Dunn and Sabien Doolittle.

A punishing defensive effort and scoring from six different Flyers in the final two periods helped to stymie their Ohio Heritage Conference opponents who were making their first regionals appearance in 21 season.

Senior Tyler Mescher ended the night with 12 points and helped his team shoot nearly 50% from the field by putting himself in position for big offensive rebounds that helped keep possessions alive and allow guard Matt Rethman to find Justin Albers and Bruns for points and account for a 32 point second half.

Catholic Central, champions of the OHC South this season see their 2017-18 campaign come to an end at 23-4. The Irish were led on the evening by Trey Dunn who connected on a trio from outside and a team high 14 markers.

While the first contest of the night had nary a foul call for the most part the second game featured quite a few stops by the officials and resulted in the contest nearly being decided at the line.

In the final minutes of the game the Fort Loramie Redskins found themselves at the free throw line 18 times and connected on 8 of their fourth quarter attempts to eventually seal their 48-45 victory, their third of the season against conference rival Russia.

A low scoring first half saw the Redskins ahead by six at the break 20-14 led by the Division 4 Southwest District’s Player of the Year Dillon Braun who knocked down a pair of three pointers and 10 points.

Daniel Kerns led the Raiders in scoring heading into the fourth quarter with his team behind by 9 at 34-25 and saw the duo of Jordan Keck and Jack Dapore take over and get the game close in the final minutes as they nailed a quartet of three pointers.

Fort Loramie’s Tyler Siegel ended the night with 12 points and 10 rebounds with 6 coming in the final half of the fourth quarter underneath against a tough Russia double or triple team defensively.

With just seconds remaining in the contest Russia had a three point attempt to tie go long at the buzzer during an attempt to send the game to overtime.
