Titans avenge earlier loss, eliminate Hawks from playoffs

  • 0

Even though the game took place almost two months prior, it is safe to say the Titans never forgot.

On Dec. 1, the second game of the season for South Central Calhoun, the Titans tasted defeat for the first time of the 2020-21 campaign. The Titans had to travel to Jewell, where South Hamilton was able to gain a 60-47 victory.

SCC would win 15 of their next 19 games, winning the Twin Lakes Conference title and securing the second-overall seed in their district.

Revenge was served for the Titans on February 18 when they were able to gain a 61-45 victory over South Hamilton. Better yet for the Titans was the fact that the win advanced them in the district tournament, while they were able to send South Hamilton home for good.

South Central Calhoun was able to grab an early advantage, leading by eight after the first quarter.

The lead continued to grow for SCC over the next two quarters as they led 44-33 after three quarters.

South Central Calhoun continued to feed the ball to their sharpshooter, Joshua Dietrich, on the night throughout the fourth, allowing the Titans to continue to pull away.

With the win, the Titans are able to go to the district final game, where they will play Roland-Story later tonight. Tipoff is scheduled for 7 p.m. at Greene County High School.

Dietrich led the way with 14 points. Cole Corey had a double-double with 12 points and 11 rebounds.
