 JV Boys Lose Lead, Fall at Mt. Vernon

January 23, 2008 - Knightstown’s junior varsity boys basketball team got off to a fast start against Mt. Vernon Saturday night, but the bottom soon fell out.

The Panthers jumped to an early 8-4 lead over the Marauders when Jordan Hauk and Travis Titus scored four points apiece at the midway point of the first quarter. But Mt. Vernon scored six straight points to end the period, and the Panthers also committed 10 first half turnovers. That enabled host Mt. Vernon to complete a 17-1 run, allowing only a single free throw by Nick Hochstedler. With that run the Marauders took a commanding 21-9 lead over the Panthers. Knightstown got a pair of free throws from Hauk, and then a steal and lay-in by Titus to make it 21-11. But the Panthers had gone nearly eight minutes without a field goal and went into the half trailing 23-13.

The Marauders’ speed and height were too much for the Panthers. That bad second quarter was followed up by an even worse third period for Knightstown. They went without a field goal in the third quarter, and didn’t get one until the three-minute mark in the final frame. That extended the drought without a field goal to two full quarters.

Knightstown managed just one third-quarter point, a free throw by Chris Mefford, and the Marauder lead was 34-14.

Hauk hit four-of-six free throws in the final period, but the lead was 39-20 with four minutes to play. Knightstown closed out the contest by scoring the game’s last eight points. Titus hit his trey, and Drew Martin stole the ball and fed Aaron Forshey for two more. Anthony Forshey then hit a long three-pointer before the buzzer to cap the scoring.

Titus and Hauk were the lone Panthers in double figures with 11 and 10 points respectively. Anthony Forshey had three, Aaron Forshey two, Mefford and Nick Hochstedler had one apiece.
