Eagles flatten Indians in CIC tilt

FRANKTON — The Frankton Eagles decided they wanted the fate of the conference championship to back in their hands.

To do that they applied a strangling defensive grip on the Mississinewa Indians and came away with a 55-32 victory here Friday night.

In the middle two quarters the visitors were limited to five free throws and no field goals. That turned a 13-11 deficit after one quarter into a 38-18 advantage. It was nearly three minutes into the final period before the Indians hit their first field goal since the first quarter.

“Defense was a point of emphasis all week for us,” said Frankton coach Brent Borbston. “I thought Nick Wright did a great job defensively. Obviously Jordan’s (Reeves) presence on the interior was huge for us.”

The Eagles opened the game in a 1-2-2 zone, three-quarter court press with Aaron Korn at the top. The zone lasted one quarter and really didn’t have a strong effect on Mississinewa as the Indians scored 13 points.

“After that, we changed to a 2-2-1 press just to give them a different look,” said Brobston. The change didn’t force turnovers but it threw off the Ole Miss offense. The Indians took seven shots in the quarter and missed them all. But they still trailed just 20-15.

But when the field goal drought lasted through the third period, the outcome was decided before the final stanza began. In the third, five different Eagles scored five field goals with Korn and Austin Compton getting five points each.

It wasn’t until Brobston emptied the bench in the game’s final five minutes that Mississinewa managed to get three more field goals for a grand total of nine for the game. The Indians hit just 25 percent of their field goal attempts on the night.

Korn scored 20 points on just 16 shots to top both teams. Reeves scored 10 and Copmpton added nine. Wright pitched in seven.

  • SPT - HB0731 - Colts Camp - Werner - 319 Werner's progress evident at Colts Camp

    Bjoern Werner's rookie training camp was rather quiet. The German-born outside linebacker went through individual drills and worked hard in full-team sessions, but he was overwhelmed by all the new information he was processing. And it was holding him back. When the season started, Werner was further set back by a foot injury that cost him three games, and he finished the year with just 2.5 sacks. Then the former Florida State star went to work.

  • SPT - HB0731 - Colts Camp - Fleener - 206 Colts focusing on situational improvement One year ago, the focus in Indianapolis Colts training camp was on turnovers. The team had committed far too many in 2012 and was determined not to repeat its mistakes. The theme at Anderson University carried over to the field, and the Colts' 14 turnovers were the fewest in the NFL last year.
