Lions pile up Wood
By John Mullen, sports writer  
Friday night under the lights inside Jack Butcher Sports Arena was a good one two times over as both the varsity and reserve Lions picked up their first Blue Chip Conference wins of the season against the visiting Wood Memorial Trojans.  
  The junior varsity took care of business in the evening’s preliminary with a convincing 49-25 victory.  
  The big boys followed suit with their own resounding effort by the score of 63-35.  Wood was out-manned in all facets as the Lions’ pressure defense kept the Trojan shooters from getting hot and staying close.  
  The junior varsity got contributions from their entire line-up.  Austin Bradley led with nine, Kirk Lengacher followed with seven, Clinton Burch six on two 3’s, Colin Nelson five, Matt Tucker, Aaron Howell, and Jon Sherfick four each, Stephen Bradley three, and Tyler Jacobs and Waylon Matthews two as the little Lions raced to a 23-5 halftime advantage and coasted.   
  Meanwhile, the varsity actually only led 26-16 at the halftime break, but a huge 11-0 run in the first four minutes of the third period virtually put the game away.  WM managed to string together seven straight tallies to stop the bleeding, but in the fourth frame, Loogootee continued to build a comfortable bulge as the final score would indicate.  
  Leading the way in the points department was the newly masked man, John Baugh, who, just 48 hours removed from a broken nose, put up 14.  Bryant Ackerman drained three trifecta’s on his way to a baker’s dozen to go with rebounds, and Jordan Arvin came off the bench to record 11 and grab five boards.  Conner Wittmer put in eight, all coming in the first two quarters.  Ben Hogan hit two bombs and also finished with eight markers.  Stephen Bradley, Daniel Wildman, Greg Woody, and Travis Sergent completed the box score with three, two, two, and two respectively.  Josh Divine ran the point all night long, dishing for a career-high 11 assists, but did not dent the scoring column.
