Bulldogs rout Rockets
By Dave Boninsegna
The Delphos Herald
PANDORA — The Columbus Grove Bulldogs boys basketball team continued their dominance from the free-throw line Tuesday night in their Putnam County League matchup against the Pandora-Gilboa Rockets at The Launching Pad.
The ’Dogs drained 17-of-22 attempts, with Will Vorhees connecting on 11-of-13, as the guests rolled past the Rockets 53-25.
Vorhees led all scorers with 20 points and has hit 17-of-19 over the span of the past two contest (6-of-6 vs. Continental). Collin Grothaus and Derek Rieman each had nine for Grove.
Abe Basinger led the Rockets with seven markers.
Grove shot 15-of-36 from the field in the contest. In contrast, the Rockets had difficulties finding the mark, going just 9-of-42 attempts and 4-of-9 from the stripe.
P-G took a brief 3-2 edge early in the game as the teams traded buckets on alternate possessions but after Rieman powered his way for a bank shot at the low block to give the Bulldogs a 5-3 advantage, the visitors never looked back.
Grove rode streaks of 19-2 and 13-2 in the first half to take control. The Rockets shot just 1-of-9 in the first stanza as a stingy Bulldog defense kept the hosts on their heels; P-G held the ball in one possession for nearly two minutes before a shot became available and even after that the home team got the offensive rebound, the ’Dogs stole it away.
Columbus Grove built up a 7-3 lead after the first stop and after a Rieman shot from the low post, the guests had a 10-point advantage at 15-5. Vorhees showed off his foul shooting talents in the second stanza by hitting 3-of-4 and adding a bucket from inside and outside the arc, the latter leading to a 20-5 lead and topping off a 19-2 spurt by the crimson and grey.
The Rockets made just 3-of-18 shots in the first 16 minutes and only 2-of-8 from the line.
The second half didn’t get much better; the visitors came out shooting again and after a Jarred Tousley bucket, the Bulldogs went on another stretch, this time a 13-2 run. At one point in the canto, Vorhees drove the paint, switched hands in mid-stride and laid the ball in for two, giving him 13 points on the night with the scoreboard showing a 28-11 Grove lead.
Grothaus and Vorhees delivered 15 of the 17 points for the Bulldogs in the third stanza as the hosts stood with a commanding 41-14 lead at the end of three.
Grove’s foul-shooting expertise continued in the final period as Jace Darbyshire nailed 4-of-4 adding to his six points; senior Josh Tussing, who had been injured this season, saw his first action and drained a long ball with under two minutes to go, making it a 53-21 score.
The Bulldogs improved to 12-6 overall, while the Rockets fell to 4-12.
The JV contest was also won by the guests.
Grove hosts Ada Friday.
Blake Hoffman 1-0-2, Jace Darbyshire 1-4-6, Collin Grothaus 4-1-9, Josh Tussing 1-0-3, Will Vorhees 4-11-20, Derek Rieman 4-1-9, Brady Shafer 2-0-4. Totals 17-17-53.
