Twisters top Waldron at home

OA nets two wins in three days

The Oldenburg Academy varsity basketball team played three games in three days.

The Twisters split two games at the McKee Munk Invitational (Henryville) and followed up with a victory over Waldron.

The Twisters lost in the opening round of the Invitational to Crothersville (68-65) and capped their play with a 65-52 victory over Shawe Memorial.

The second win of three games came on Saturday against the visiting Mohawks by a score of 67-51.

Waldron controlled the tempo early in the game and it was reflected on the scoreboard. Coach Jeff Gorrell’s squad led 15-9 at the end of the first quarter.

The momentum began to shift in the second quarter and the course of the game changed for good in the third.

After falling behind by 11 points, the Twisters scored 11 unanswered points to tie the game at 20-20 in the second quarter. They later took their first lead of the game on back-to-back field goals by Kurt Sarringhaus and Drew Kloepfer at the 2:02 mark.

The two teams entered halftime knotted at 26-26.

The difference in the game came in the opening minutes of the third quarter.

The Twisters rattled off 11 straight points. Ted Geis opened the second half with a field goal followed by a pair of Kloepfer 3-pointers and one by Sarringhaus.

The offensive flurry forced Gorrell to call a timeout. The break in action slowed the pace, but the Twisters were still able to take a 45-32 lead into the final eight minutes.

The Oldenburg lead grew to as many as 17 points on two separate occasions late in the game. The Twisters were 14-of-17 from the free throw line in the fourth quarter to help preserve the victory.

Four players scored in double figures for coach Gary Moorman. Matt Moorman led the Twisters in scoring with 16 points followed by Geis (13), Matty Hurm (12) and Kloepfer (11).
