Decatur County sports digest announcements for Dec. 4

Greensburg — Posted below are the Decatur County sports digest announcements for Dec. 4.

North 7th boys top Batesville

The North Decatur seventh grade boys basketball team mounted a furious comeback to defeat Batesville 33-29 last week.

The Chargers trailed 12-2 in the first quarter, which ended 12-4 in favor of the Bulldogs. North, though, outscored Batesville 8-3 to close the gap at 15-12 at halftime. The Chargers ran off an 11-8 run to tie the score at 23-all after three, and 10-6 for the final four-point margin.

“Great team win!” said coach Mark Mohr. “After being down 12-2, we didn’t pack our bags and throw in the towel.” Mohr did point out the 18 turnovers his team committed.

“We have to take better care of the ball,” he said.

Leading North, which improves to 3-2, was Evan Smith with 12 points. Cole Parmer scored six points, while Caleb Stapp scored seven. Sidney Ricke added three, Brandon Becker scored two, and Luke Kinker chipped in one.

Pirate boys freshmen beat Waldron

The Greensburg boys freshman basketball team traveled to Waldron Saturday and came away with a 50-21 win. Keegan McCullough led all scorers with 12 points, Chandler Deaton added 11, Alex Pokrzywinski put in 9 points, Peyton Buening and Jaden Smith each had 4, Christian Dance and Spencer Burkert added 3 points each, and Devon Brown and Matt Navarra rounded it out with 2 points each.

Pirate 8th boys fall to Sunman-Dearborn

The Greensburg eighth grade boys basketball team traveled to Sunman-Dearborn Thursday and came out with a 47-24 loss.

The Pirates came out with good energy and worked hard,” said coach Andrew Ruble, “but could not get baskets to fall in the first quarter trailing 13-4.

Ruble said the Pirates executed “much better and attacked the rim which allowed us to get into the bonus.” If it was not for missing three open layups and 4 missed free throws, “we could have been tied or a one possession game,” he added, but instead halftime score was 21-11.

Sunman-Dearborn came out strong in the 3rd and began a 16-0 run to put the game out of reach.

“I was proud of how we did not give up and outscored Sunman 13-9 in the fourth quarter,” said Ruble.

Leading the Pirate scoring was Greg Schroader with 6, Louis Moore 5, Dillon Merritt 4, Chancey Holdsworth 3 on a triple, Harlan Dolan, Trevor Reynolds, and Brent Bowling with 2 apiece. Trevor Reynolds and Dillon Merritt each recorded 5 rebounds, while Brent Bowling led the team with 3 steals. Greensburg is now (0-5) on the year and will host Columbus Central Tuesday Dec. 4 tip-off set for 5:30 p.m.
