Sports : Hamilton wins state-ranked showdown with Trenton, 51-45
Posted by Tom on 2013/1/28 10:40:00 (508 reads) News by the same author

In the first of at least TWO matchups between #2 ranked Trenton and #9 ranked Hamilton, the outstanding play of senior guard Elsie Greenwood proved too much for the Lady Bulldogs on Saturday night, with the Missouri S&T bound Penney product sizzling the nets for 35 points, with Hamilton earning their own tournament title with a 51-45 win.

Greenwood scored 35 of the 51 Hamilton points over the course of the game, including ALL 24 POINTS scored by the Lady Hornets in the first and third quarters combined. Also key in the Lady Hornets win was the stingy defense put on Trenton throughout the contest.

Sports Director Tom Johnson spoke with THS girls coach Brian Upton about the game earlier this (Monday) morning:

The lead for Hamilton was 12 after the end of the third quarter, and the hosts withstood a late Lady Bulldog rally to earn the win. Greenwood hit six three pointers in the game, and her blazing-fast "whirlwind" pace got her to the free-throw line 11 times (she knocked down seven).

Trenton's record, with the loss, falls to 16-2. The Lady Bulldogs were led by 14 points from senior center Avery Whitaker while senior point guard Scotlin Hurley added 10. THS will not have much time to lick their wounds, facing a road test on Tuesday night (at 5:30) at Lawson High School, before returning to Trenton to host Milan on Thursday (at 6:15 at the THS gym) and battle St. Joseph Lafayette on Saturday afternoon at 2 o'clock at the Ketcham Community Center.

The girl's championship game from Hamilton on Saturday night was broadcast on Hot Country Z 101.7 and 'Internet TV' from

The boy's championship game from Hamilton was won by Gallatin (in overtime) over Richmond by a score of 78-75, as Bulldogs senior center Dexter Daniel had a career night, scoring 34 points. Dalton Tompkins had 13, Derrick Lin 13, and Chris Cameron 12 for the victorious Bulldogs. In the loss, Richmond was led by 27 points from Reid Summers and 17 from Dee Pritchett.

The third place boy's game was broadcast EXCLUSIVELY on 'Internet TV' from, with the Trenton boys battling hard, but coming up short against South Harrison for the third time this season, 75-63.

Foul trouble appeared to play a key role in helping South Harrison's fourth quarter surge, as Bulldog starters Chase Tolson and Colby Larson both picked up their fourth personal fouls early in the fourth quarter, with the third-seeded South Harrison Bulldogs able to then turn up the pressure on Trenton, leading to a 29 point final quarter. Trenton had led the game 49-46 after three quarters, with THS scoring 25 points in the third quarter.

South Harrison's all-state tandem of Kaid Hendren and Dylan Heitz continue to give Trenton headaches, with the pair combining for 50 of South Harrison's 75 points in Saturday's game (Hendren with 26 and Heitz with 24). The loss drops Trenton to 11-8. The THS Bulldogs had 18 points from Austin Taul (all in the second half), 17 from Colby Larson, 12 from Chris Kurtz, and 10 points from Seth Acton. Trenton will play at Lawson on Tuesday night and host the Milan Wildcats on Thursday night (January 31st) of this week, looking to rebound from playing well, but losing to teams from Richmond and Bethany in finishing fourth at the Hamilton Tournament.
