Frankfort rallies, Bellaire holds on in TC regional


In overtime, freshman Kole Hollenbeck stepped up, scoring Frankfort’s first six points and staking the Panthers to a 65-62 lead. Loney tallied with 31 seconds left to push the margin to five.

Loney did his damage in the paint, despite playing with four fouls since the 4:04 mark in the third quarter.

“I think it just came down to making basketball plays,” Baldwin coach Scott Pedigo said. “We just didn’t box out. We got poor at boxing out that last three or four minutes of regulation. And it carried over into overtime. We had a couple chances to stop that and just rebound the ball and hold onto it.”

“I tip my hat to them,” he added. “We had a nice lead. We tried everything with timeouts to keep the momentum. After they got that ball back and tied it, we just lost the momentum. It was a big battle from there on out.”

Andon Ware led Baldwin with 24 points and nine rebounds. Childress, who fouled out early in overtime, added 23 points and 12 rebounds.

Hollenbeck contributed 10 to the Frankfort attack.

“That was key,” Panthers coach Reggie Manville said of Hollenbeck’s contributions.

Manville said Frankfort was able to rally because the Panthers “stayed together as a team.”

Of course, it helped that Frankfort played better defensively in the second half and that Stratton caught fire offensively.

“Owen’s been unbelievable lately,” Manville said.

Manville said playing a tough schedule helped Monday night, too.

“We beat Cedarville and they won a district,” he said. “We beat Harbor Springs and they won a district. We beat Maple City-Glen Lake and they won a district. We beat Suttons Bay and they won a district.

“We played some tough competition. Games like this, that’s where it shows because you’ve been through a lot of wars.”
