Bulldogs fall to Eagles

NEWTON — The Eagles had no trouble on offense against St. Anthony Friday night, winning 74-43 and pushing their record to 12-0 on the season.

Dylan Davidson and Keith Butler each had 16 points for Newton, making a formidable inside-out connection against the St. Anthony defense.

Newton used its deep roster to push the tempo early, and while St. Anthony hung around for a quarter and a half, the Eagles pulled away.

“We came in knowing we were deeper than them,” said Newton coach Doug Mammoser. “Our guards play pretty well when they can get up and down.”

Things picked up early in the first quarter when Davidson hit three straight threes to put Newton up 13-4. The Bulldogs hung around, keeping it at 28-20 with about five minutes left, but Newton scored 12 of the next 17 points and grabbed a 40-25 lead at the half.

“We were hanging around; they’ve got a good team,” said St. Anthony coach Mark Tovey. “We don’t guard well enough to handle a team like that right now.”

Tovey said the Eagles shot 59 percent from the field Friday night.

Any hopes of a second-half surge were quickly extinguished, as Newton rattled off an 8-0 out of the gate to take a 23-point lead.

The deficit stayed around there for much of the game and both coaches emptied their benches midway through the fourth quarter.

Davidson, Dylan Johnson and Corey Davidson stepped up shooting the ball from the perimeter, while Luke Stone and Butler handled things on the inside.

Mammoser was happy with their shooting.

“We haven’t shot like that since (Elijah) Knepper went out (with an injury),” Mammoser said. “He was our three-point shooter.”

Stone had 13 points, Johnson added 12 points and Corey Davidson had eight, rounding out a balanced Newton attack.

Jacob Schuette led the Bulldogs with 16 points, Jason Vogel had eight points and John Goeckner and Neil Williams had six points each.

    At least it’s the last year of the Ohnesorges for Altamont’s opponents.
    That’s the sister duo of Madison and Lauren that have been top athletes at Altamont High School. The pair produced once again in a 6-2 win over Charleston at Karch Field.

  • ZGard1.jpg Pitcher's duel: Gardewine leads St. Anthony over Teutopolis 1-0

    Zach Gardewine gripped the game ball tightly in his right hand and smiled.
    It’s not every day a pitcher shuts out the loaded Teutopolis lineup and he knew it. Gardewine became the first player to blank the Wooden Shoes, in St. Anthony’s 1-0 win on Tuesday, since Dieterich duo Tanner Traub and Jake Bohnhoff on March 22, 2013.

  • 4-22Ziegler.jpg Ziegler's choice an easy one

    Lake Land College’s Grace Ziegler had a choice after her two years playing were up.
    The Altamont alumna basically whittled her options down to this: continue to play basketball collegiately at a four-year institution, or transfer to a four-year institution to have a traditional college student experience.

  • Vonderheid.jpg Vonderheide, W/SS win at Charleston 12-0

    Christian Vonderheide had the luxury of choosing which was better.
    It was either the grand slam, or a complete game shutout thrown by the right hander.
    “They are both pretty equal,” Vonderheide said. “Pitching is more of my thing. The grand slam I got lucky. I swung hard, and I was lucky enough for it to go over the fence."
    The win could be more important as Windsor/Stew-Stras pounded a 12-0 win over Charleston at CHS Field.

  • czachorskimug.jpg Czachorski: Time to catch Cup fever

    I woke up early Friday morning and did something I never do these days -- I flipped on SportsCenter.
    It was the top of the 7 a.m. hour, and unshockingly, ESPN led with discussion of the playoffs.
    What left me flabbergasted was they were leading with the NHL playoffs, as I was truly unaware ESPN remembered that hockey was a sport.

    His first three hits were no doubters, but Blayke Cutts’ fourth hit on Thursday was a high bouncer over the glove of Olney third baseman Peyton Billington to win in a walk-off.

    The typical phrase used in situations like this, I think, is: “He shows potential.” I may not have believed anything I was saying, but at least he was in line to be a four-year starter; at least, he had that.
