Tidioute drops a pair to Union

RIMERSBURG – A slow start, coupled with the scoring of Lucas Bowser proved to be too much for the Tidioute Bulldogs to overcome in a 58-42 setback on Monday.

Bowser scored 35 points for the winners.

“We knew coming in that he (Bowser), was good,” said Tidioute coach Terry Cotterman.

Jared Veasey had another strong game for Tidioute with 16 points and eight rebounds, while Patrick Shields added 11 points, six rebounds and two blocks.

Free throw shooting was a problem for the Bulldogs, as they shot 9-of-28.

“We’re good shooters, it was just a bad night,” noted Cotterman of the foul shooting. “The second and third quarter we played well.”

Tidioute returns to action on Wednesday, hosting Youngsville.

RIMERSBURG – The Tidioute girls basketball team ran into a strong Union squad on Monday, falling by a score of 69-28.

A big second quarter run for Union, 23-4, opened the game up.

Nakiesha Krouse led Tidioute with 13 points, while Greysen Fors added 10.

“Outnumbered and out-hustled,” said Tidioute coach Christy Valentine. “Nakiesha got into early foul trouble and had to spend time on the bench. Lack of hustle and offensive rebounding – the girls would get one shot and get beat down the floor. Every game is a learning experience with such a young team and tonight was one of them.

Krouse added four steals, Fors five rebounds and two assists and Sunny Henderson seven boards.

Four Union players finished in double figures.

Nakiesha Krouse with 13 points and 4 steals. Greysen Fors with 10 points, 5 rebound and 2 assists. Sunny Henderson with 7 rebounds. Frankee Remmick with 14 points for Union.
