Sheffield, Tidioute boys drop regular season finales
Sheffield gave Kane everything it wanted and then some in its regular season finale, which also served as Senior Night, but in the end a strong start was enough for the Wolves in a 56-46 triumph.
“All eight seniors contributed,” said Sheffield coach Mike Knapp. “Tevon Campbell, who came halfway through the year and played JV, was able to come in and knock down a jump hook to start the second half.”
Cale Albaugh ended his career in style, pouring in 18 points, while also playing excellent defense on Kane standout Chad Greville.
The sharpshooting guard exploded for 24 points in the first half as Kane jumped out to a 33-22 lead, but Knapp made the switch to put Albaugh on him and it paid off, as he was held to just five points in the second half.
Matt Dunham also had a terrific game, scoring 18 points, while pulling down eight rebounds, dishing out seven assists and notching three steals. Albaugh also had seven rebounds, three assists and two steals.
“We played really well in the second half,” Knapp said.
And while it was a tough season for the Wolverines, Knapp and his team still took away plenty of positives.
“It was a tough year, we had several games that could have gone either way,” he said .“It was a learning year, probably a little tougher than we anticipated, but I think we’ll be better for it in the future.”

CRANBERRY 74, TCCS 60
CRANBERRY – Tidioute’s boys took a while to get their legs back after a bit of a lengthy layoff and it cost them in a 74-60 loss at Cranberry Thursday.
The team was only able to get two practices in since it’s last game at Fort LeBoeuf Feb. 9.
“One thing we found out about our team, we need to play,” Tidioute coach Terry Cotterman said.
The Bulldogs didn’t get into an offensive rhythm until the second half, but by then the Berries had a 33-18 advantage.
“We didn’t shoot the ball well until the second half,” Cotterman said.
Jared Veasey had a double-double with a game-high 21 points and 10 rebounds. Patrick Shields had 14 points in the loss.
