ASHLAND — Colonel Crawford went straight for Eastwood’s Achilles’ heel on Thursday — limiting the Eagles’ leading scorer, Jake Schmeltz, to just five points in a 42-36 Division III district semifinal win. PHOTO GALLERY
“They did a great job on him. He had to work for every shot he had,” said Eastwood coach Matt Routson.
Schmeltz had the first three points of the game, and then was held to just one field goal the remainder of the contest.
“It’s a tough loss, but I am so proud of what we accomplished,” Routson said.
“We played our hearts out. We talked about making the most of every opportunity, and I felt like we did that. We left everything out on the court.
“A couple of shots didn’t fall for us, and that was the difference.”

TONTOGANY — Perrysburg’s boys basketball team has become fond of taking control of tournament games in high-pressure situations.
The Yellow Jackets seized another opportunity to do just that in Thursday night’s 41-38 Division I district semifinal win over Findlay at Otsego High School.
Trailing 38-37 with 1:45 to play, Perrysburg forward Matt Kaczinski hit a jumper from the left elbow putting the ’Jackets up 39-38. Just 27 seconds later guard Matt Mesker jumped the passing lane at midcourt, resulting in a steal and a contested layup, giving Perrysburg its three-point cushion. It was Mesker’s only basket of the game. PHOTO GALLERY
“We said in the second half we had to keep getting pressure on them but not foul, and sooner or later we had to come up with something,” Perrysburg coach Dave Boyce said. “Mesker’s play was absolutely huge and he made a tough shot.”
“I don’t even know what I was thinking, it was just instincts,” Mesker said. “I saw the ball in the air and then I saw that (Austin) Gutting was going for it so I thought I had to take a chance and go for the steal.”

PERRYSBURG - With a gloomy winter season, there was still a glimmer of happiness, relief and excitement for three Perrysburg High School athletes last month.
Nate Patterson, Courtney Clody and Lucy Walton signed their national letters of intent to compete at NCAA Division I universities on Feb. 5.
Patterson will play football at Miami (Ohio) University, Clody will run track and cross country at Ohio State, and Walton will play soccer at Ball State.
Taylor Monheim also signed to run track and cross country at NCAA Division II Grand Valley State University.
Patterson, a tight end on Perrysburg's football team, was called "one of the best blockers I have ever seen at the point of attack" by coach Matt Kregel last fall.
Patterson's 6-foot-4 frame helped propel quarterback Gus Dimmering to 1,207 rushing yards and 15 scores, along with 1,688 passing yards with 14 touchdowns as the Yellow Jackets claimed their first Northern Lakes League title since 2006.
"Part of me wanted to go to a great school, but another part of me wanted to play football, and I knew, because of their record, I wanted to become part of something new and turn it around next season or the season after," Patterson said.
