Panthers fall short to Dugger, Ind., 52-50, in non-conference contest
JOSH BROWN
Sports Editor

Close but no cigar was the theme for Oblong High School's boys' basketball team Tuesday night (Jan. 29).

The Panthers were bidding to get back in the win column, but came up just short in a 52-50 loss to Union-Dugger, Ind., in a non-conference contest.

Oblong jumped out to a 13-9 lead after one quarter, but was outscored 15-11 in the second quarter to send the game into halftime tied at 24-24. Oblong outscored Union-Dugger 12-11 to grab a 36-35 edge, only to be outscored 17-14 in the fourth quarter, allowing Union-Dugger to escape with the win.

The three-point line proved critical in the game, as Union-Dugger knocked down eight shots from long range outscored Oblong 24-15 from beyond the arc. That helped the Bulldogs overcome poor free throw shooting, as they made just 2-12 foul shots, while Oblong hit 7-10 free throws.

Conner Potts led OHS with 18 points, while Nate Meese also reached double figures with 13. Caleb Black tossed in eight points, Zane Belford scored five and Hayden Johnson and Diego Lliteras netted three points apiece.

Three players reached double figures for Union-Dugger, led by Ben Dobbins and Mason Boyd with 14 points apiece, while Brayden Robertson tossed in 10.

Oblong did win the junior varsity game 22-19.

Caleb Newman led OHS with 11 points, while Johnson tossed in seven and Jonathan Littlejohn scored four.
