W. Holmes, Hiland boys both notch wins

Published:

Wooster coach Craig Martin had one word to describe his team's poor performance in the 58-37 loss to the Knights in the Dungeon at West Holmes.

"Execution," the coach said. "We did not execute ... Give West Holmes some credit. They're a quality basketball team. Coach Lindeman's done a good job with them. His kids play hard, and they execute."

So well, in fact, the Knights are now 4-0 overall and 3-0 in the Ohio Cardinal Conference.

Gabe Snyder scored inside to give the Knights a 6-4 lead midway through the first period, but over the next four minutes, West Holmes opened up a 17-4 lead, closing the quarter on an 11-0 run.

Brady Arnold scored on a short jumper. A steal and layup by Keaton Leppla made it 10-4. Arnold swished a 3-pointer, a steal and a Brock Macaulay stickback made it 15-4. Ryan Neer finished off the frame with another put-back bucket as time expired.

Neer paced the West Holmes offensive with 14 points.

Arnold was next with 11 points, to go along with seven assists and eight steals.

Hiland 58

Ridgewood 39

Hiland outscored Ridgewood 25-13 in the final quarter to pull out this Inter-Valley Conference contest last Friday.

Todd Ropp led nine different Hawk players in scoring with 19 points, and Jordan Yoder finished with 11.
