Trojans top Hawks for 1-0 HHC start

Tri-Central survives Sheridan's fourth-quarter rally.

(Continued)

“We knew we wanted to mix up defensively, and it paid off,” Zahn explained. “The big thing is the win makes us 1-0 in the conference and gives us a leg up going into a tough HHC game at Rossville Friday night. Our focus now is what we do from now on. Rossville is pretty good, and we need this win.”

Sheridan coach Cory Dunn offered: “We had a chance to win it, but we had a lot of letdowns and mistakes in the second quarter. TC did a good job of keeping the ball out of Christy’s hands by packing their zone and closing out on our shooters. And we lost too many of those 50-50 balls because they were quicker.

“TC had that big second quarter, and that’s been our problem — we’ve been giving up too many big quarters,” the former TC standout finished.

Both clubs endured shooting problems in the third segment (3-11), and it all boiled down to Sheridan’s 24-point flurry in the final period and some vital Trojan tallies in the closing moments.

The Hawks went 10 of 15 at the free throw line in that final act; Brock Kitchel hit a pair of huge treys including a bank shot that made it 61-60 with :16.3 left. Roberts went 5 of 6 at the line and Christy was 4 of 6 that was a key factor in trimming that once safe TC lead to one point.

Dalton Davis had a big breakaway basket after a steal by Seth Blunck and then followed with an even bigger trey. Blunck fouled out with 2:30 to play and Bryce Dowell came in to nail a crucial basket and and nab two big rebounds.

Smith led TC with 15 points, Garrett Dick had 12, Blunck 10 and Howell and Davis eight apiece. Christy led Sheridan with 22.
