Bulldogs eliminate Pirates in sectional

RUSHVILLE – After taking an early 5-0 lead, the Greensburg Pirates were outscored by the Batesville Lady Bulldogs 23-6 in the remainder of the first half. Batesville then doubled up the Lady Pirates 10-5 en route to the 44-27 victory.

The Lady Bulldogs advance to face South Dearborn in the sectional semifinal Friday. The other semifinal pits host Rushville against Lawrenceburg – 50-25 victors over Franklin County in the sectional opener.

Greensburg opened the scoring with a bucket by Jessica Banaschak and a 3-pointer from Abigail Denton. Batesville’s Brooke Rohlfing got the Lady Bulldogs on the board with a free throw. After Greensburg pushed ahead 6-1 on a free throw by Denton, a rebound bucket by Shelby Rupp and 3-pointer from Brooke Bradford knotted the game at 6-6.

From there it was all Batesville in the first half. The Lady Bulldogs ended the first quarter on a 9-1 run. Bailey Baumer started the run and Rupp capped it with a bucket in the lane just before the buzzer as Batesville led 15-7.

Batesville started the third quarter with a 6-1 run. Chelsey Paul’s traditional three point play highlighted the spurt as the Lady Bulldogs led 21-8. A Taylor McIntosh 3-pointer gave the Lady Pirates some life under the four minute mark, but that was the final points of the half for Greensburg. The Lady Bulldogs only scored two points in the final four minutes as the teams combined to miss six free throws, including the front end of two 1-and-1 bonus situations. At the half, Batesville led 23-11.

In a low scoring third quarter, Batesville’s Jessica Wagers opened the scoring. Greensburg then went on a 5-2 spurt. Madeline Hellmich’s bucket closed the deficit to 27-16 for the Lady Pirates. Batesville closed the quarter strong with four points from Samantha Heidlage and two from Bradford to lead 33-16 after three quarters.

Greensburg did not make a run in the fourth. The Lady Bulldogs extended the lead to 22 points on five straight Heidlage points. After a bucket by Greensburg’s Allison Geis, Batesville scored the next six points to grab a commanding 44-18 lead.

The Lady Pirates scored the final nine points of the game. Denton started the run and a 3-pointer by Hellmich capped the game with Batesville advancing 44-27.

Geensburg was led by Denton with seven points. McIntosh finished with six. Hellmich and Banaschak both had five. Geis added four points.

Batesville was led by Heidlage with 14 points. Rupp added nine and Baumer had six.
