Wolverines snap losing streak

Monday, February 4, 2013

It took an extra session, but the White River Valley Wolverines finally snapped a five-game losing streak.

WRV got double-figure scoring from three sources and outscored host Owen Valley 11-8 in overtime to post a 53-50 win Saturday night at Spencer.

WRV, who hadn't won a game since they defeated North Knox on Jan. 12, crawled back above the .500 mark improving to 9-8 on the year.

The Patriots fell to 7-10.

Wolverine point guard Cade Hill led the way for the win with 15 points while fellow starters Michael Fisher and Luke Mowery drained 14 points each.

Mitch Ingram added eight while Jonathan Koenig finished with two.

Despite a pair of 3-pointers from Owen Valley in the first quarter, the two teams were tied at 8-8 after one quarter.

White River Valley surged ahead in the second thanks to a trey and 5 of 6 successful free throws from Ingram and carried a 21-16 advantage into the intermission.

Things turned in favor of the hosts in the third quarter as they reversed the trend from the second frame holding a 15-9 edge and a 31-30 lead on the scoreboard.

The fourth quarter saw the Wolverines edge OVHS 12-11 to force the overtime thanks to Fisher (four points in the quarter), Hill (a 3-pointer) and Mowery (five points).

White River Valley will remain idle until Saturday when they played a conference game at Linton-Stockton. Because of the girls sectional, the junior varsity will start at 1 p.m. with the varsity game to follow.

On Tuesday, Feb. 12, the Wolverines will travel to Eminence for a 6 p.m. non-conference clash.
