|Big second half run lifts Huntsmen to road win at Southeastern
With Southeastern leading 26-25, the Panthers were holding the ball for the final shot of third quarter.
Huntington was able to force a turnover and on that extra possession it was Daniel Addy knocking down
a triple from the left corner to give the green and white a 28-26 advantage heading to the final quarter.
The final eight minutes was all Huntington. The Huntsmen outscored Southeastern 19-7 in the final frame
to secure a 47-33 victory.
Early in the game, Southeastern had the tempo in its favor. With the Panthers packed into the paint
defensively, the Huntsmen fell in love with the three ball in the first half. Huntington's inability to knock
down shots made it tough for the Huntsmen to apply any defensvie pressure, and as a result,
Southeastern owned a 17-15 halftime lead.
In the second half, Huntington started to have some success getting it inside; however, Southeastern did
stretch its lead to two possession before Huntington cut into the lead and recorded the before mentioned
big turnover to end the third period.
In the fourth, Huntington scored early and started to turn up the pressure. This led to many transition
baskets, and forced Southeastern to match-up. This allowed Huntington to really go to work in the paint
and put the Panthers away.
For Huntington, Corey Cottrill scored nine points and grabbed 15 rebounds while Drew Trusty scored
10 points and pulled down nine boards. Kyle Deal also scored 10 points and Derek Clark added eight
points. Another stat of importance to the winners was Clint Turner. In the first half, Turner scored five of
Huntington's 15 points, and his two perimeter shots were the only two shots to fall, which kept
Huntington from trailing by more than just one score.
Southeastern, who was without leading scorer Jordan Elam due to a toe injury, was led by Devin Willard
with 11 points. Sophomore Tyler Osborne scored 10 points and dished out five assists.
Just three days after Piketon recorded a big win over Westfall, the
Piketon Redstreaks were back at it again Friday night as they

Zane Trace team that is responsible for Piketon's only loss in 12 games.
In the win, Piketon's backcourt continued its great play. Cody Smith
scored 18 points and recorded seven rebounds. Sophomore point
guard Evan Legg scored 18 points as well. Jordan Brabson added 10
points in the win while Caleb Southworth scored nine points and
