Fifteen minutes after the conclusion of the Wapakoneta Redskinsâ€™ 56-42 loss to the Marion Local Flyers on Tuesday night, Redskins varsity girls basketball coach Rusty Allen still hadnâ€™t emerged from the home lockerroom.
Once he did, Allen knew what the first question was going to be.
â€śIt was the call,â€ť Allen said.
â€śThe callâ€ť was what Allen would later describe as a â€śphantom chargeâ€ť against senior guard Tasha Helmstetter.
BOTKINS â€” The Anna Rockets girls basketball team remained undefeated by easily taking care of Botkins in a 58-35 win Tuesday.
Anna jumped out to a big lead early, capturing an 18-7 lead in the first period and never looked back.
â€śThey are a very good team,â€ť Botkins varsity coach Don Mack said. â€śThey get up and down the court in a hurry. We were able to force them into some outside shots but it wasnâ€™t enough.â€ť
Annaâ€™s quickness got them plenty of second shots, as they pulled down 13 offensive rebounds in the contest.
