Archbold Boys Upset by Genoa in Sectional Basketball
The Archbold Blue Streaks found themselves in a 24-14 hole at halftime of the DIII Boys Sectional Championship game against the Genoa Comets but fell just short despite a furious second half comeback, losing 42-41 to end their season. Cade Brenner scored the first eight third-quarter points and the teams would finish quarter tied at 34, but the Comets were able to score just enough in the fourth to walk away with the Sectional Title.
Archbold had several chances to take the lead in the final frame thanks to poor free throw shooting, 3 of 12, by Genoa but were unable to capitalize on the opportunities. The Blue Streaks finished the season with a 15-8 record.
DJ Newman led Archbold with 14 points and Brenner scored 13. Ashton Kammeyer added six points, Alex Roth had four and Gavin Bailey and Ty Hurst each had two.
