Dalton Hinterscher scored 40 points for the Dieterich Movin Maroons Friday night, but his team needed every one of them as Dieterich edged the St. Anthony Bulldogs 65-61.  The game at the Enlow Center was heard on 979XFM and 

Hinterscher, averaging just under 25 points per game this season, scored 28 in the first half as the Movin Maroons gained a lead of as many as 14 points before the Bulldogs started to right the ship and pull back to within at halftime, 39-29.  Dieterich led 23-11 after one quarter with Hinterscher just shy of 20 points at that point in the game.

St. Anthony switched to a 1-3-1 defense in the second half and was able to slow Hinterscher's momentum.  The Bulldogs continued creeping closer after intermission, getting to within five points before Dieterich pushed the advantage back to 12, but St. Anthony came back strong one more time and pulled within two points at the end.  A three-point try by John Goeckner that would've given the Bulldogs their first lead of the game just missed and Dieterich grabbed the rebound.  Hinterscher was fouled and he made both foul shots to push the lead to 65-61 and the Movin Maroons had the win.

Hinterscher scored his 40 points on 12 of 23 shooting from the field including three three's and was a perfect 13-of-13 from the line.

St. Anthony's Jacob Schuette had a big night of his own, finishing with 30 points on 12 of 21 shooting and grabbing eight rebounds.


Also for the Bulldogs, John Goeckner had a double-double with 14 points and 11 rebounds, and Jason Vogel, in his first game of the season, scored nine points and pulled down six rebounds.  Neil Williams scored four points and Zach and Andrew Gardewine each scored two points.

Also scoring for Dieterich: Tanner Traub with nine points, Devin Aherin 6, Brandon Westjohn 5, Austin Bushue 3 and Josh Campbell 2.

St. Anthony made 49% of its shots, hitting 22 of 45 while making 14 of 23 foul shots, committing 19 turnovers and grabbing 31 rebounds while making just one of five three-point tries.

Dieterich made 38% from the field on 20 of 53 shooting, but canned 19 of 23 foul shots while committing just 11 turnovers and pulling down 24 rebounds while making six of 22 three-point attempts.

Dieterich improved to 7-4 on the season while St. Anthony sees a two-game winning streak snapped to drop to 2-5.

Dieterich swept the night's action, winning a freshman game 41-32 and claiming the JV game 46-43.

In the freshman game, Niemerg led the way with 17 points for Dieterich, while Jeff Niebrugge scored 13 to lead St. Anthony.

In the JV contest, Bohnhoff had 16 and Feldhake scored 10 to pace Dieterich, while Matt Gibson and Andrew Gardewine each scored eight points to lead St. Anthony.


Leighton Lark hit a three-point shot with 1.7 seconds left to give the Effingham Hearts a 58-55 win over the Mt. Zion Braves at EHS Gym.

The Hearts were down by as much as 10 points before starting a second-half comeback that culminated with Lark's last-second shot.

Mt. Zion led the contest 16-12 after one quarter and outscored the Hearts 13-7 in the second period to lead 29-19 at halftime.  Then, the Hearts produced a 26-point third quarter while holding the Braves to 12 points to take a 45-41 lead.  Mt. Zion wasn't done, though, and came back to force a 55-55 tie before Lark's corner 3 gave the Hearts the win.

Lark and Jake Stombaugh each scored 12 points to lead the Hearts while Alex Carie added 10 points, all in the second half.  Also for Effingham: Hunter Keith 9, Josh Stombaugh 7, Clark Williamson 6, and Trenton Frey 2.

Effingham improved to 6-2 on the season and remain undefeated in the Apollo Conference.  It was the last action for the Hearts until the Centralia Holiday Tournament on Thursday, December 27.
