North Montgomery’s boys’ basketball season came to an end Friday evening after their contest with Greencastle in the second round of sectional play at Crawfordsville. The Tiger Cubs took advantage of their hot shooting and offensive rebounding to rout the Chargers 57-30.
“There were a lot of things that we didn’t do early on,” said Charger head coach Andrew Evertts, “We knew that if we wanted to beat a team as good as Greencastle we had to make a run early on. We played them close last week but it was a different story today.”
Greencastle came out firing to start the game, shooting 8 of 14 from behind the arc in the first half as they ran ahead to a 30-11 lead before the halftime break.
“We struggled to score today and that was apparent in the first three quarters,” said Evertts, “It’s been the story of our season.”
Greencastle kept the streak going in the third, holding the Chargers to only two points while piling on to their lead en route to a 57-30 victory and a birth to the Sectional 25 championship game against Crawfordsville Saturday night.
Greencastle was led by the duo of Sutherlin and Parmley who finished with 15 points apiece. In total, the Tiger Cubs shot 50 percent from behind the arc and 54 percent from the field.
Jaron Bradford finished with a team high seven points while Conner Cain led North Montgomery with five rebounds.
“So proud of our seniors and all that they did. Those guys just worked their butts off every day,” said Evertts. “They bought in and we’re great leaders for us. It just sucks for them to work as hard as they did and then lose it in this fashion. It’s tough.
“It didn’t show up in the win column but they laid the foundation for what we want North Montgomery basketball to be. Our seniors set a great example,” he said.
