Foust leads Fairfield over Bremen, 58-43

February 7, 2011

BREMEN — Bremen led 24-21 at the half, but Tanner Foust took over after the break as Fairfield claimed a 58-43 win over the Lions at Bremen Saturday.
Foust went 6 of 7 from the field in the second half for 16 of his game-high 24 points. His alley-oop layup at the 5:32 mark of the third frame put the Falcons up for good.
“He was kind of in the rhythm, and he was finding little seams and things,” said Fairfield head basketball coach John Wysong. “We didn’t tell him anything special (at halftime), just try to keep even-keel.”

February 7, 2011

LAKEVILLE — Last year, LaVille knocked Triton off its undefeated and sole possession of the Northern State Conference lead perch.
This time around the Lancers spent the first 30 minutes acting like a pesky fly that just kept buzzing around the Trojans’ heads, but a late push propelled Class A No. 2 Triton to a 69-59 NSC win at Dale E. Cox Gymnasium Saturday.
With the win, the Trojans enjoy a one-game edge in the league loss column with two games to play.

Pilgrims suffer Goshen setback

February 5, 2011

Plymouth got off to a slow start as the visiting Redskins held the home team to just three points in the first quarter and 13 total points at the half, snapping a five-game losing streak in the Pilgrims’ worst offensive showing since a Nov. 30 loss to Triton.

Cavs start fast in season finale

February 5, 2011

CULVER — Culver Community’s girls basketball team viewed its regular-season finale as a sectional contest.
If the Cavs bring the kind of swagger to the real deal that they brought to the pseudo-sectional, watch out.
Class 2A No. 6 Culver allowed just two points over the opening 14:21 — highlighted by a nearly 11-minute scoreless stretch — en route to a 45-22 Northern State Conference win over visiting John Glenn at John R. Nelson Gymnasium Friday.

Hustling Falcons fight past Culver Community

February 5, 2011

Hard to argue with that assessment.
