Defense, balanced scoring attack helps Indian cagers avenge earlier loss to Shepherd

CHESANING – Four Indians scored in double figures last Tuesday as Chesaning’s varsity boys’ basketball team beat visiting Shepherd, 57-40.

But CHS coach Matt Weigl also credited solid defense as a critical ingredient in his team’s seventh win of the season.

“We came out extremely strong on the defensive end and that helped us to a 27-13 lead at halftime,” commented Coach Weigl, whose squad outscored the Bluejays in each of the four quarters of play. “We lost a heartbreaker to them earlier this season as well as a tough one last Friday, so our guys were very motivated and it paid off.”

Garrett Bishop was at the front of a balanced offensive assault with 13 points. He also had three steals.

Jarrett Kelley scored 11 points and grabbed 5 rebounds while Jacob Turnwald and Brendan Greenfelder canned 10 points apiece. Turnwald and Greenfelder each came up with four steals and Greenfelder also passed out five assists.

Sam Forsyth turned in a solid performance with nine points, five assists, four boards and four steals. Cole Higley and Gabe Luce each scored a pair of points with Higley also hauling down four caroms.
