Split results for Tiger boys
February 19, 2020
Ipswich received split outcomes in its pair of boys ' high school basketball appearances last week. The Tiger boys indeed gave the Sully Buttes Chargers all they wanted and then some before evetually dropping a 52-44 outcome here last Friday. But the Tigers had handed Sunshine Bible Academy a 61-44 setback at Miller a night earlier on February 13.
Ipswich had led its hosts 17-15 in the opening quarter of action and added a 22-12 second-quarter scoring edge for a 39-27 advantage at intermission. Ipswich also won the third-quarter outcome 16-12 along with a 6-5 final-quarter edge.
Ipswich received scoring from eight different players, paced by Will Kadlec's game-high 28 points and he included five treys and also dished out five of his team's 16 assists. Next was Taylor Thorson with nine points and he was followed by Maxwell Geditz who added two treys in his eight-point scoring effort. Josh McQuarie contributed seven points that included a lone trey and Jordan Richardt added a trey for his three points. Ethan Gilbert, Eric Severson and Tucker Green all tallied two points each.
You may credit Sunshine Bible with a trio of double-figure scorers, led by Jade Burma's 19 points. Dylan Hass tallied 11 points and Daniel Kegbeh 10 points. EJ Big Eagle was his team's remaining scorer with four counters.
Ipswich connected on 24 of its floor-shot tries and that included those nine treys. The Tigers were 4-8 in free throw attempts. The hosts were making 19 baskets all from inside the trey arc and they shot 6-11 at the line.
Ipswich only sustained 10 turnovers; SBA, 20. Seventeen of those were from steals, led by Ty Kadlec's five and Will Kadlec's four. Ipswich edged its hosts 36-34 on the boards, despite a double-double effort from Burma with 15 rebounds. Will Kadlec had eight for Ipswich.
Meanwhile, Ipswich fell behind Sully Buttes 18-13 after a quarter of their boys' game here Friday. But Ipswich returned the favor with a 11-7 second-quarter scoring edge, but would still trail by a point at the half, 25-24. Ipswich had launched the scoring in that quarter with a Will Kadlec trey, followed by a Ty Kadlec steal to briefly even things at 18-all.
Ipswich then edged SB 9-8 in the third quarter to pull into a 33-33 tie with a quarter to play. A Will Kadlec steal would then open the final-quarter scoring derby for a 35-33 Tiger edge. And a little later in the quarter Will Kadlec's two free throws would elevate Ipswich into a 39-all tie. But the visitors would gradually out-score their hosts 13-5 the rest of the way capped by some accurate free-throw shooting opportunities down the stretch.
Ipswich was led by Will Kadlec's 16 points and he included a pair of treys. Max Geditz also climbed the double-figure scoring plateau with 12 points, all from his four three-balls. And McQuarie would add six points to the Tiger cause, followed by Ty Kadlec with five points that included a trey. Thorson and Severson each had a basket and Gilbert a free throw to complete the effort.
Sully Buttes got a game-high 20-point scoring evening from Nick Wittler and Grant Johnson also got into double-figures with 14 points. Jett Lamb nearly got there with nine points, followed by Rafe Wientjes with five points and Jesse Schall with four points.
Ipswich ended up with 16 baskets that included the seven treys and was 5-10 in free throws. Sully Buttes countered with 19 baskets that featured five treys and added a 9-15 evening at the line.
The visitors won the boarding battle 27-26, despite five from McQuarie. Ipswich had 15 turnovers, three more than its visitors.
