Noblesville’s Nolan Ginther, scored 6 point in the Millers’ 53-46 loss at Avon Friday night.
The Times


AVON - It looked like the Noblesville Millers were a shoo-in for a victory after a dominant first period, but by the end of the third, the Orioles made a comeback to win 53-46.

The first period was disappointing for the Orioles as they failed to connect on several shots resulting in a 14-point lead, in favor of Noblesville.

The second period looked a bit better as the Orioles began to score more buckets. Avon gained 12 more points and went into halftime down 27-14.

While the Millers had almost doubled up the Orioles in the first half, Avon wasn't ready to quit. Instead they were ready for a comeback.

While the Millers were still ahead, Avon persisted, scoring 21 points in the third period, cutting the Miller lead to just five. Hayden Crowder sunk a 3-pointer at the buzzer to make it 40-35, Noblesville entering the fourth.

The fourth period was nothing but heat as both teams fans were on the edge of their seats. The Millers began to play sloppily which gave Avon a chance to win their third game in a row.

When asked about Avon's Comeback Noblesville head coach Brian McCauley said he was disappointed.

"In the second half they pressured us, we panicked," he said.

In the last period, Avon came together to gain the lead, sinking shots left and right. However, it was free throws that won the game.

Nolan Ginther led Noblesville with 15 points .while Avon's Andrew Short had 15 and Evan Lowden added 12.

Avon is back in action tonight at Greenfield-Central for a 7:30 p.m. tip. The Millers will host Hamilton County rival Hamilton Heights tonight at the Mill, also at 7:30 p.m.

- The Hendricks County Flyer staffed the game for The Times.
