The defense forced more turnovers (17) than Oak Hill field goals (14), and it wasn’t even a spectacular night.
“Our goal was to put pressure on them for four quarters, and I thought we did a good job of that,” said Brobston, noting the NBA court’s 10 feet of additional length took some of the steam out of the Eagles’ press.
Nearly 600 fans made the trek south to support Frankton — which played the fifth contest in the six-game Hoosier Invitational slate — and they’d gladly do so again a few months from now with a state title on the line. That’s the kind of heady thoughts that sneak into a team’s head after a start like this.
But the Eagles have a showdown coming up next Friday against Class 2A No. 2 Wapahani, and the teams again are slated to play in the same sectional. So Brobston can be excused for declining to look too far ahead.
“Obviously, our goal in the tournament is to try and advance,” he said. “But the thing with the tournament series is, you’ve gotta advance every night.”
