The AW-Perrysburg game is Tuesday at 7 p.m. at Findlay.
"We played Bowling Green early (in the regular season) … and they played a very defensive-minded
game. They have a lot a seniors and they have had a successful season," said Perrysburg head coach
Mike Timbrook. "Going in, our game plan was to play a little more quicker balls, get it up to
Karter (Sell), let him lay it out, go the goal and attack the flanks.
"It created quite a bit of pressure," Timbrook continued. "I knew BG would have to come
out and play and that would open up a little more space for us to operate in."
Alec Smith scored twice for Perrysburg off rebounds. Nate Smith and Sell also scored goals. Jeremy Ashley
made three saves for the Yellow Jackets.
BG’s Will Hess finished with 17 saves and James Fite had one.
"Hess is a talented keeper and he does a nice job," Timbrook said. "The objective was to
put the ball on frame and let happen what happens. When you get close-in shots, it’s hard for the keeper
to make a real solid save. Sometimes rebounds come out and hopefully you’re there crashing the nets and
will be able to pick it up and go."
Allowing Perrysburg to score off rebounds was disappointing for BG head coach Tim Memmer.
"Everyone of them we had the first play on and we didn’t follow up," Memmer said. "That’s
extremely frustrating." The Bobcats were limited in their scoring opportunities as Perrysburg
controlled the play, especially in the second half.
BG finished the season 8-6-4 overall.
"From where we were last year to what we did this year, when it’s all said and done, our
goal-differential improved by 50-plus goals from what it was last year. We basically cut in half the
goals we allowed and doubled the goals we scored," Memmer said. "All around a tremendous
change from where we were last year."
