Bulldogs win battle at Beech Grove

The Batesville Bulldogs traveled to Beech Grove High School on Saturday afternoon and departed with a hard fought 64-55 win over the Hornets.

“The officials definitely let them play,” BHS coach Aaron Garrett commented. “They played extremely hard for 32 minutes and capped a tough weekend with a good win against a good team on the road.

“It was a tough weekend both physically and mentally. I was very pleased with how the guys responded,” he added.

The Bulldogs got out to a good start at the beginning of the second half and was able to make a nice run to close out the third quarter.

The Bulldogs trailed at each of the first two quarter breaks. The Hornets held a 13-7 lead at the end of the first period and then 26-23 at halftime.

Bryan Hoeing, Wes McKinney and Kassidy Kase combined to score the first seven points of the third quarter as the Bulldogs took their first lead of the game and gained a 30-26 advantage.

After Beech Grove’s Caleb Chumley cut the deficit to 30-29, BHS senior Nathan Longstreth countered with a 3-pointer to extend it to four again.

The Hornets hit back-to-back 3-pointers to regain the lead and forced Garrett to use a timeout.

Longstreth gave the Bulldogs a lift nearly every time they needed one in either half. He sparked the Bulldogs out of the timeout and scored the team’s next five points to trim the deficit to one point at 41-40.

The Bullldogs then went on an 8-3 run to close the third quarter and take a 50-44 lead into the final eight minutes.

It was a lead they would not relinquish. Blake Walsman, Kase and Hoeing all hit free throws down the stretch to help secure the victory.

Longstreth finished with a game-high 20 points, including a trio of 3-pointers. Walsman hit 7-of-8 free throws and finished second on the team with 15 points. Walsman also added 10 rebounds.
