Arrows topple TrojansPublished 10:25am Wednesday, December 18, 2013
ASHBY — The Ashby boys basketball team earned their first home victory on Tuesday night, toppling the visiting Ortonville Trojans by a point in a 62-61 victory.
The Arrows led by as many as 12 in second half, before the Trojans took the lead on a three pointer with a minute to go.
The Arrows defense stepped up its game, however, giving Ashby the opportunity to take the lead.
Up by a point, the Arrows held off the Trojans’ last play with just a second to go.
“This was a great win for our team,” Ashby head coach Jeremy Knick said. “We knew coming into tonight that Ortonville was a good team with a lot of weapons. We knew our defense was going to have to come up big. Which it did.”
Morgan Wing dropped 23 points for the Arrows. Blake Ohren followed up with 16.
With the win, the Arrows establish a three-game winning streak. The Arrows face Hancock on Friday.
