North Decatur 49, Milan 43; 2A Sectional 45 Round 1

Hanover- It almost happened a second time, but it didn’t.  Back on November 25, Milan erased a nine-point deficit at the start of the fourth quarter and beat the Chargers by two, 59-57 at North Decatur.

During Tuesday’s opening round of Class 2A Sectional 45 at Southwestern Hanover, the Indians dug out of a 12-point hole after three periods to tie the game in the fourth.  But, this time, North hung on to win 49-43.

Coach Kyle Nobbe’s Chargers never trailed in the contest.  They led by as many as four in the first quarter and held a 12-11 advantage at the first stop.  Garrett Metz headed the ND scoring effort with six points in the period.  Zac Minnich matched that for Milan on a pair of 3-point baskets.

North stretched the lead to 10 in the second quarter before settling on a favorable 32-25 margin at intermission.  Metz picked up six more points on a conventional 3-point play and a long ball.  Teammate Craig Adams found success twice from the arc in the first half for six points.  Zac Minnich continued to top Milan in scoring with eight points while Austin King and Jed Minnich both accounted for six Indian points.  King hit two bombs.

Twice, North Decatur’s lead was a dozen points in the third stanza, including 41-29 at quarter’s end.  Tyler Walterman worked inside for six ND points.  Zac Minnich hit his third trey for Milan.

Then came the start of the fourth.  Coach Josh Blankinship’s Indians scored the period’s first 11 points to pull within one and eventually tied the game at 43.  But the Chargers scored the game’s final six points.  A nice offensive stick back by Alex Stirn and good free throw shooting by Metz (3 of 4 in the fourth) helped secure the round one, 49-43 victory.
