Tinora 55 Continental 36

CONTINENTAL – After the Lady Pirates Liv Logan nailed a three pointer from the left wing to give Continental a 21-19 over the Rams to start the third quarter, Tinora senior Liv Mueller said not so fast.

The lead for Continental was quick as Tinora’s Mueller drove the lane, scored and was fouled, giving the Lady Rams a 22-21 lead after a free throw with 6 mins remaining in the third. Mueller and the Lady Rams would never look back.

Tinora would outscore Continental 36-14 over the remainder of the contest, coming away with a 55-36 hard-earned win on the road over Continental.

The Lady Rams had things going their way right out of the gate, grabbing a 15-7 lead after the initial quarter.

For coach Thiel and the Lady Rams, the second quarter is one they would like to erase. After seeing things come easy in the first quarter, the Lady Pirates zone defense would give Tinora second quarter fits. Tinora would just score four points in the second, Continental would slice the Lady Rams lead to 19-16 heading to the half.

The third quarter was the Liv Mueller show. Liv would take over the game, as the Lady Rams would score 19 third quarter points, grabbing a 38-25 lead after three.

Tinora would dominate the final quarter, scoring 17 fourth quarter points, the Lady Pirates would score 11 points in the final quarter, Tinora would come away with a hard fought 55-36 victory.

The Tinora defense shut down Lady Pirated leading scored, Bryn Tegankamp in the second half, limiting her to 6 points, and just nine points overall. Liv Logan would lead the way for Continental with 12 points.

The Higbea Embroidery Player of the Game goes to Liv Mueller. Liv with a game high 18 points, 14 points in the second half.

With the win, the Lady Rams improve to 202. Tinora will take part in the Defiance Physical Therapy Classic from Defiance High School on Monday and Tuesday. Game one is Ayersville vs Tinora at 6 pm.

Continental falls to 0-4. The Lady Pirates will host Fairview on Tuesday, Dec 6,

JEWELL – The Tinora Lady Rams came into the Monday night contest looking for their first win as a team in 2022, looking to give first year head coach Andrew Thiel his first win, and also looking for the delivery of their home white uniforms.

Due to the latter, the Lady Rams and the Lady Cadets would end up with a great uniform matchup, one that would definitely put anyone in the Christmas spirit. Hilltop trotted out in their road reds, while the Lady Rams were forced to wear their road greens. Somewhere, Santa was smiling from ear to ear down on Tinora High School.

The Lady Rams haven’t had much success finding the bottom of the net through the first two games, however tonight was a new chapter.

Tinora Senior Liv Mueller came out a blazing, scoring 12 points in the initial quarter, bucketing four three pointers for a Lady Rams 17-12 lead after one.

The first half was the Mueller & Baker show. Hilltop sensational sophomore Libbie Baker would match Tinora’s Mueller point for point most of the night. Baker would score 13 points in the half, eight in the second quarter.

Tinora would take a 28-21 lead to the locker room.

Hilltop came out in the third and put the clamps down on Tinora’s Muller, the Lady Rams had a backup plan. The Okuley’s, Karli and Nova, both scored in double figures in the second half as the Lady Cadets limited Mueller to just four second half points. Tinora would exit the third quarter with a 45-22 lead.

In the fourth quarter, the Cadets were riding the hot hand of Libbie Baker, Baker with 23 second half points, tried to will the Lady Cadets to a comeback win. Unfortunately, Hilltop could never get closer than 10 pints in the final quarter. The lead would bounce from 12 to 10 throughout the last five minutes, with the Lady Rams coming away with their first victory of the new season.

The Higbea Embroidery Player of the Game award went to Liv Mueller, congratulations Liv!

With the win, the Rams improve to 1-2. Tinora will travel to Continental Thursday to take on the Pirates.

Hilltop falls to 2-2 with the loss. The Lady Cadets will host Stryker on 12/2.

Congratulations to coach Thiel on his first career varsity win.

Tinora 52 Bryan 38

JEWELL – Heading into the new season, the Rams had to replace senior leader Nolan Schafer. Schafer seemed to be at the head of the Tinora offense for the past decade, but just four years, actually.

As the post holiday, post Big Game crowd filled the Tinora High School gymnasium, the Rams seemed to have a spark they’ve been missing for a few seasons.

Bryan started their season with a 47-44 win over GMC member Edgerton Friday night, the Golden Bears matched last seasons win total with the season opening victory.

Junior wingman Owen Ackerman, who played a majority at JV last season, supplied the Rams with their first two baskets courtesy of sweeping drives to the bucket. Ackerman would wind up with eight points for the game, but his slashing presence was noted throughout the contest.

Tinora’s leading scorer last season, Luke Harris, 12.6 PPG, also provided some scoring in the first quarter. Harris scored a team high seven in the quarter, including a left baseline buzzer beater from about 12 feet, giving the Rams a 13-7 lead after the initial quarter.

The second quarter started with an Ackerman drive and score, The Rams would have a very productive second quarter, scoring 20 points.

Senior Gavin Eckert supplied the Tinora offense with consecutive three pointers in the quarter from the top of the arch, increasing the Rams lead 28-14 with just over two minutes remaining in the half.

Eckert, despite missing the last two months of the football season, returned to the hardwood to provide high energy and intensity on defense to the Rams throughout the night.

Another junior, Aiden Rittenhouse, made his presence felt in the second stanza. Rittenhouse would score eight in the quarter, including the Rams second buzzer beater in as many quarters, this one came from the right corner for three to send Tinora to the locker room with a 33-16 halftime lead.

The Rams played nearly flawless in the initial half, shooting 67 percent (14-21) from the floor with just three turnovers in the half, while Bryan shot 41 percent (7-17) with 5 turnovers.

Bryan would start the quarter looking to cut into the Tinora lead, and the Golden Bears would make a run throughout the quarter.

Tinora would not find scoring as easy as they did in the first half, Bryan would limit the Tinora Rams to just seven third quarter points.

At the end of the third quarter, Tinora led Bryan 40-29. The Bryan Golden Bears would finish the final six minutes on an 11-2 run, cutting into the Rams 17 point halftime lead.

Tinora would look to capture the first half magic, but with the sluggish play by both teams over the final 12 minutes, the scoring would be difficult. Rough, hard nose defense by both teams and mounting fouls by both teams seemed at times to slow down the play in the final quarter to a crawl.

Tinora would hold the Golden Bears to just one point over the first five minutes of the final stanza, closing out a season opening 52-38 victory.

Each team would finish with nine turnovers. The Golden Bears did not make a three point shot during the contest, while the Rams would convert six threes.

The Higbea Embroidery Player of the Game would go to Rams senior, Gavin Eckert. Gavin with 13 points and tough defense throughout for Tinora. Unofficially, Gavin grabbed 12 rebounds.

Tinora starts the 2022-’23 season at 1-0. The Rams back in action on Friday 12/2 at home vs Delta, then Saturday night 12/3 at Napoleon,

Bryan drops to 1-1 and will host Wayne Trace on Friday, then Eastside on Saturday.

BRYAN – The Tinora Lady Rams coming off a season opening loss at Miller City hit the road for the second straight game, this time traveling over to Bryan to take on the perennial power, the Lady Golden Bears who came in at 1-1.

Bryan, coming off a NWOAL title also has a 40-10 record over the course of the past two seasons.

Despite graduating Addie Arnold, who was a first team All-NWOAL selection along with Delilah Taylor, who was a second team honoree, the Lady Golden Bears still return tons of talent as they look for their third staring NWOAL title.

As in the 56-43 loss to Miller City, the Lady Rams had trouble with the full court press, this night it was Bryan applying the pressure throughout the contest.

After the first quarter, Bryan jumped out to a 20-8 lead, the Lady Golden Bears never looked back, leading by as much as 24.

The second quarter was a quarter both teams would like to forget, Bryan scored just six points in the third, the six points came via ex Lady Ram transfer Anna Gray.

With the sluggish, sloppy play by both squads in the second quarter, Bryam took a 26-13 lead to the half. Gray led the way with nine first half points, while Maggi Nagel lead Tinora with three points.

The second half brought more of the same for Tinora, suffocating defense by Bryan led the Lady Rams to nine third quarter points, Bryan poured in 18 points to take a 44-22 lead to the fourth.

The story of the second stanza was Bryan’s Reese Grothaus as she poured in 12 second half points, ending the game with a team high 17 with three 3 pointers made.

Tinora tried to get back into the game despite the large deficit, but the Lady Golden Bears defense would deny the Lady Rams any comeback attempt, walking away with a 50-28 win.

The loss dropped Tinora to 0-2, the Lady Rams next game is their home opener vs Hilltop on Monday, 11/28.

Bryan improves to 2-1. The Lady Golden Bears will travel to take on Wayne Trace on Tuesday, 11/29.
