Furious rally falls short

Western nearly erases 21-point deficit vs. Twin Lakes in final

(Continued)

Twin Lakes put itself in position to win with a crisp effort offensively and defensively for the first three quarters that Western didn’t match until the second half.

“There were a lot of calls that I felt could have went either way, and down at the end there, give Twin Lakes credit, they were more aggressive and were able to get a few more loose balls than us,” Miller said. “That was really the story of the night: They were just a tad bit more aggressive than we were and it dug us a hole that we couldn’t dig ourselves out of.”

Gabe Harp had nine points, Weaver eight and Townsend six to go along with Warden’s big night. The Panthers closed the season with a 15-7 record and bid adieu to a senior group that includes Warden, Townsend, Chris Carter, Devon Eaker, James Myers, Zac Simpson and Nic Bewley. Warden closed his career No. 4 on the Panthers’ all-time scoring list with 1,078 points.

“[I] just want to thank the seniors, the seniors did a fantastic job this year,” Miler said. “I appreciate everything they’ve done for us and the program over the years.”

Western was playing its second straight game without leading scorer Des Balentine, who suffered an ACL tear in an opening-round victory over West Lafayette.

Holmes led TL with 15 points, Bennington and Tyler Reddington each had 13, and DeBoy 11 for Twin Lakes (16-7). The Indians advance to the Kankakee Valley Regional.
