Boys blast Bell City in homecoming rout

The Oran High School boys basketball teams picked up a pair of victories Friday on homecoming over the Bell City Cubs.  The junior varsity won a two-quarter affair 34-23 and the varsity had their way with the Cubs from start to finish, winning 83-19.

Dane Shands led the younger Eagles with 18 points.  He hit a pair of three's and was 2-2 from the line.

Samuel Shoemaker had seven, including a trey.  Logan Rose scored four and also made both free throw attempts.  Seth Cauble had three points and Cameron Westrich, who struggled with foul problems had two points.

They were 5 of 7 from the line for 71% and improved their record to 9-4.

In the varsity matchup, Bell City scored first but then it was all Eagles as Oran led 33-7 after one and 54-15 at halftime on their way to the 64 point win.

Jacob Shoemaker led a balanced scoring attack with 18.  He hit a pair of three's.  Cooper Priggel had 17 with 15 coming from beyond the arc.  Ty Johnson had 13 and Tyson Goodale had 12, including a trey.

Langdon Scheeter, Todd Priggel and Avery Mitchem each had six.  Scheeter hit a trey and Priggel had a nice two-handed slam (video posted below) and Mitchem also had a trey and hit his only free throw attempt. Luke Patterson made a three-pointer and Kaiden Massey made both of his free throw attempts to round out the Eagle scoring.

They were 10-15 at the free throw stripe for 67% and improved to 16-1.

The Eagles will host Oak Ridge in a key conference matchup on Tuesday at 6 pm.

Coach Joe Shoemaker said, "I thought we were able to keep our energy up throughout the game. It was nice to see some of the players who don’t normally get a lot of playing time some minutes."
