ANTWERP – Three Archers reached double figures, and another scored nine to lead a balanced Antwerp to a 47-26 victory over the Holgate Tigers last night.

Land Brewer, Zane McMichael and Parker Moore all scored eleven points, and Reid Lichty had nine in the effort. Ben Savina and Cam Fuller added three and two points respectively to close out the Archer scoring.

Antwerp jumped out to a 14-2 lead at the end of the first quarter, and despite Holgate outscoring the Archers by one in the second, the outcome was never in doubt.

The home team took a 24-13 lead into halftime and extended their lead to 40-24 during the third quarter. Antwerp shut down the Tigers in the fourth, giving up just two points while adding seven themselves.

The Archers outrebounded Holgate 24-18. Antwerp controlled the ball well too, committing only six turnovers while forcing fifteen.

With the win, Antwerp improves to 11-3 on the year. Holgate falls to 2-13. Up next for Antwerp is a GMC matchup at Ayersville on Friday night, before traveling to Montpelier Saturday.

Notes of interest: The non-conference game was a makeup contest, rescheduled due to the Antwerp football team’s extended playoff run. Holgate posted a symmetrical line, scoring 2-11-11-2 in the quarters.
