Bulldogs Overcome Turnovers to Advance in Bob Fisher Classic


The Swanton Bulldog boys shook off poor ball handling in the first half and a one-point halftime deficit to defeat the Maumee Panthers 52-45 in a semi-final game of the Bob Fisher Classic at the Robert Fisher Gymnasium.

With legendary Coach Fisher sitting courtside, the Bulldogs outscored the Panthers 15-4 in the third quarter, riding the hot shooting of senior guard Sam Betz.  Betz trigger the blitz when he hit three straight shots, two treys and a deuce for eight points, and Swanton took a 34-24 advantage, into the fourth quarter.

The lead would eventually grow to 12 points before Maumee, out of the Northern Lakes League, forced several more turnovers and cut their deficit to five points.  Fortunately, for the Bulldogs, they were able to get to the free throw line 16 times in the final frame and sank 11 of those shots to hold off the charging Panthers.

Betz led all scorers with 17 points while Lathan Pawlowicz and Nic Borojevich had 10 points each.  Cole Mitchey added seven point, Luc Borojevich scored five and Hayden Callicotte had three.
