Lady Rams 46 Stryker 38

On a night the Tinora Lady Rams basketball program honored their five member senior class of Sierra Brown, Dakota Schaffner, Emily Harr, Maggi Nagel, and Liv Mueller, it also brought a couple of firsts.

For the first time this season, the Lady Rams sported their new 2022-23 home white uniforms. A delay by the manufacturer delayed the delivery of the new uniforms that arrived late last week.

The second first, and tear-jerking moment, saw Lady Rams senior Sierra Brown suit up for the first time this season. Brown was injured a week prior to the seasons start during a scrimmage game and was unable to play her senior season.

Along with her five senior teammates on the floor, the Lady Rams controlled the tap, fellow injured Lady Rams Dakota Schaffner passed the ball into Brown, Sierra then bucketed her first points of her senior season for a great feel good moment for all in attendance. (Video below)

Stryker would jump out to a 13-6 lead over the Lady Rams after the initial quarter, as Stryker’s Lexi Wickerham would knock down five of her seven first quarter points in the first three minutes for the visiting Panthers.

The Lady Rams would struggle from the field in the initial quarter.

The second quarter would see the Lady Rams chip away at the Panthers lead. Tinora sophomore Nova Oluley would bucket two deep three pointers in the quarter, scoring six of her 13 total points.

The Panthers had the reigning BBC conference player of the year in their pocket as Sage Woolace would try to keep the Panthers lead in check, she would also, however, pick up her second foul midway through the first half.
A Woolace followup with just under the three-minute mark in the second quarter put the Panthers up 21-15, Woloace would knock down seven points in the half.

Tinora would rally to cut the lead at the half to 23-22.

Liv Mueller would lead the Lady Rams with seven points, Wickerham with nine for the Panthers.

Tinora would bust out of the half with five quick points, grabbing a 27-23 lead, the Lady Rams would never relinquish the lead over the final half.

In the key third quarter run, Karli Okuley would drain a three, giving Tinora a 25-23 lead, then another quick bucket by Karli would gibe the Lady rams a four point lead.

Tinora’s defense would then take over the quarter, limiting the Panthers to just four points as the Lady Rams lockdown D would end the quarter with a 28-27 lead.

The Panthers scoring leader, Sage Woolace would also pick up her fourth foul late in the third quarter, a key point for both teams.

The fourth quarter would see a gaggle of fouls called, both teams would wind up in the bonus midway through the fourth quarter.

A Julia Durfey deep three would give Tinora a 31-27 lead a minute into the fourth quarter. Live Mueller would follow with another deep three, this one from the left corner, giving Tinora a 34-27 lead over Stryker at the 5:50 mark of the final quarter.

Woolace would try to get the Panthers back in it as she converted a three point lead at the 3:26 mark, cutting the Tinora lead to 36-32.

Stryker’s Woolace would collect her fifth foul at the 1:40, mark, fouling out with 10 points on the night.

Karli Okuley would find Liv Mueller wide open under the basket for two after dribbling 45 seconds off the clock, the bucket would put Tinora up 41-35 with 45 seconds left.

The Lady Rams would convert down the stretch on both offense and defensive ends, giving the Lady Rams a 46-38 win on Senior Night.

With the win, Tinora moved to 12-9. The Lady Rams have won 5 of 6 and will close the regular season at Antwerp on Thursday.

Archbold 46 Tinora 34

ARCHBOLD – The Rams basketball team headed over to The Thunderdome at Archbold High School to take on the Bluestreaks.

Coming in off a disappointing loss Friday night to Paulding, the Rams were looking to get back on the tracks as they entered, winning 3 of their last 4 contests.

Already missing their second leading scorer, Aiden Rittenhouse, they learned prior to the game Adam Spychala, injured vs Paulding, would also be lost for the season. Sychala was to split time with Alex Homier to make up for the loss of Rittenhouse.

The first quarter saw both teams struggle from the floor as Archbold took a 6-5 lead after one.

Archbold would find the offense in the second quarter as they would bucket 20 points, grabbing a 26-11 lead at the half.

Sonny Phillips with 11 in the initial half paced the ‘Streaks, while sophomore Micah Nofziger showed much promise down low, pouring in an impressive eight points in the half.

Unfortunately for the Rams, senior leader Luke Harris couldn’t shake free from the Archbold defense. At the time, it seemed Harris had a lint roller attached to him in the name of Sonny Phillips, as the ‘Streaks defense was so strong. Harris had just two points in the initial half for Tinora.

The Rams did keep Archbold’s leading scorer Cade Brenner in check in the first half, limiting Brenner to just two made free throws.

Tinora would slowly chip away at the Bluestreaks lead, Archbold would still lead 33-23 after three quarters of play. Gavin Eckert would begin to heat up from long distance for the Rams, hitting tow three pointers in the quarter.

Eckert would draw the Rams to within seven to start the final quarter at 33-27 after his fourth made three.

After a deep three by Eli Plassman, the Rams looked to cut into the Archbold lead, 36-29 with 4:16 remaining.

As Tinora’s Eckert and Plassman would heat up, so did Archbold’s Brenner. Brenner would score 10 of his 13 points in the final 5 minutes, propelling the ‘Streaks to a 46-34 win.

Harris could never get going, limited to just five points by Archbold.

Tinora drops to 8-11. The Rams will host Antwerp on Friday in the GMC finale.

Archbold will travel to Wauseon on Friday.

Lady Rams 45 Elmwood 40

BLOOMDALE – The Lady Rams headed to Elmwood to take on the Royals in a Saturday Matinée non-conference contest.

Tinora came in winning 4 of their last five contest as the regular season winds down, while Elmwood was heading in the opposite direction, losing four of their last five.

In the initial quarter, Elmwood would jump out to an early 8-0 lead on the visiting Lady Rams basketball team. Sophomore Nova Okuley would bury two three pointers, bucketing six in the first quarter, as Tinora would go on a 10-0 run, leading after one quarter of play, 10-8.

The three point ball was friendly to Lady Rams senior Liv Muller in the second quarter, Mueller would hit two from beyond the arch for six points in the quarter as the Lady Rams would grab a 22-21 lead.

Nova Okuley and Mueller would lead Tinora at the half with six points each.
Elmwood was paced by Aubrey Johnson with seven points.

In a tight third quarter, the Lady Rams escaped with a one point lead, 33-32. Elmwood’s Johnson would bucket six for the Royals in the quarter on two three pointers.

Not to be outdone, Tinora’s Mueller would remain hot from beyond the arch, draining three more three pointers for nine points in the third stanza.

The fourth quarter saw the Lady Rams pull away late, courtesy of Karli Okuley’s 10 points in the final quarter. Karli would go 7 of 10 from the line, winding up with 14 total points in the Tinora victory. Mueller would lead the Lady Rams with 17 points on five made three’s.

Aubrey Johnson would lead the Royals with 16 points, Johnson hit four three point shots in the loss.

Tinora improves to 11-8 with the win. The Lady rams will host Stryker on Monday, 2/6 before closing out the regular season at Antwerp on Thursday, 2/9.

Get out on Senior Night and support the Lady Rams in their final home game of 2023

Paulding 51 Tinora 28

JEWELL – A jammed packed house at Tinora High School awaited as the GMC title chase was coming to the stretch run.

Tinora, in search of its first GMC title since 2011, looked to stay in the race as they entered with just one league loss at 4-1, 8-8 overall.

Paulding, looking for their first title since their 1999 NWC title, and their last GMC title came in 1965, entered at 5-0 in conference play, and 11-5 overall.

Paulding exited the GMC back in 1974 and rejoined to start the 2021 sports season.

The Panthers were off and running right away after an Ethan Foltz bucket down low gave the Panthers a 2-0 lead. Paulding would open the game with a 13-0 run. Tinora finally broke the scoring drought on an Alex Homier free trow at the 35-second mark. A deep left corner three by Brandon Schroeder gave the Panthers a 16-1 lead at the end of the first quarter.

The Panthers pressing, hard nose defense forced four Tinora turnovers in the opening quarter.

The second quarter would see the Rams offense slowly start to come to life. The Rams Owen Ackerman darted to the basket and scored on a driving layup to start the quarter, cutting the lead to 16-3. Ackerman would score six first half points, using his driving skills that, at times, make him unstoppable.

Unfortunately for the Rams, Paulding would maintain both offense and defensive dominance as they took a 25-10 lead into the half.

The second half was all Panthers, Paulding took a 38-16 lead after three, and ended the contest with a 51-28 victory, cementing their 2023 Green Meadows Conference Championship.

Tinora was lead in scoring by Luke Harris with 13 points.
Paulding was led by Agler and his 13 points.
