Gilboa-Conesville Upsets Middleburgh in Overtime

Written By Editor on 2/1/14 | 2/1/14


In what has been described as an upset by hometown spectators, the Gilboa-Conesville Wildcats came into Middleburgh Thursday evening and were able to outlast the Knights 89-84 in an exciting overtime exchange that brought fans, and players to the brink as Gilboa made the most of Middleburgh's mistakes through out the night.

The Knights were aided by the twenty point plus performances of Ryan Bechtold (21), Troy Hinkley (21), and Tanner Van Aller (20), but it just wasn't enough to overcome the visiting Wildcats. Christian Cooper (33) and Zach Perry (31) carried Gilboa-Conesville's varsity squad, with both completing 80% or more of their nineteen combined free throw attempts.

If one statistic could pinpoint where Middleburgh lost the non-conference game, it would be the number of free throw shots Gilboa-Conesville attempted Thursday evening. The Wildcats received 23 attempts to score from the free throw line, and they sunk 19 of those shots in the basket - sealing the Knights second overtime defeat this season.

HEY IT WASN'T JUST THEIR MISTAKES, GILBOA OUTPLAYED THEM! GIVE CREDIT WHERE IT IS DUE. GILBOA FACED A VERY LOUD DISRUPTIVE FAN BASE, MIDDLEBURGH HAD HOME COURT ADVANTAGE. NO EXCUSES FOR THE LOSERS!
