Falcons beat Lebanon in home finale



Springfield, Mo. (For OzarksSportsZone.com)  -- Glendale stayed fundamentally sound in a 67-44 senior night win over Lebanon on Tuesday.

The Falcons answered an early Yellowjacket lead by scoring 11 unanswered points over three minutes in the first quarter, but Lebanon mounted a comeback in spite of some turnover troubles in the second to enter the half trailing by eight points as every player who touched the court found their way onto the scoring ledger.

Yet Glendale came out of the intermission unfazed by the momentum swing, outscoring the Yellowjackets 18-6 in the third quarter.

“We did what we wanted to do,” said Glendale coach Sean Williamson. “We cut down on our turnovers from the last game and we were patient enough to shots we wanted around the basket.”

Junior Cameron Maes led the Falcons in scoring with 18 points, shooting 5-for-14 along with collecting four rebounds and four steals on the night.

“This was our last home game and we wanted to send our seniors out with a bang,” Maes said.

Jeffery Blake and Isaac Gillen lead Lebanon with 9 points apiece.

“[In the third quarter] we were getting stops but weren’t getting buckets at the other end of the court –that’s been our Achilles heel all year,” said Yellowjacket coach Cole Dishman.

“They are a competitive group of kids,” Williamson said of the Lebanon squad, “They took it to the basket to us in the second when our shots weren’t falling.

“Overall we just executed a little better than what we have recently.  That was a good one; I’m really happy for our seniors.”
Lebanon falls to 1-12 (0-2 Ozark Conference) on the season and will host Rolla on Jan. 29, while Glendale improves to 7-9 (2-2 Ozark Conference) and will face off on Jan. 21 against Rogersville in the opening round of Rogersville’s tournament.
