Moulton starts slow, wins

Moulton 8th grade basketball played their 4th game in less than 5 days and started slow at Warrensburg, Saturday morning. They had a late night Friday winning the Nokomis Tourney Championship, then an early call the next morning. No matter. The Rams pulled out a 7-point win in the roller coaster contest to start conference play, 40-33.

Warrensburg double-up the Rams in the 1st period, 14-7. Nokomis tourney MVP Payton Howell hit a trey and guard Mason Cameron had a buckett and two free throws. But, Warrensburg scored six times, including their own trey.

Shelbyville had an answer in the 2nd period, an 11-0 run. Turner Pullen got going, with a two and 1-of-2 free throws. Tylr Gottfriedt scored, Brett Spears scored and Cade Watson got to the line three times, making 4-of-6 shots and giving Shelby a 4-point lead at the half, 18-14.

Warrensburg reasserted themselves in the 3rd and reclaimed the lead with a 13-7 run. Gottfriedt scored from the floor and the other five Ram points had to come from the line. Watson was 1-of-2, Cameron was 1-of-2, and Pullen got to the line three times, making 4-of-6.

Shelby shot just 1-of-8 from the floor in the 3rd. Warrensburg hit four field goals and was 4-of-4 at the line to take a 27-25 lead heading into the fateful 4th.

The Rams ratcheted up their defense and blew by the Cardinals with a 15-6 run. Shelby allowed just on Cardinal basket in the final 6:00. The Rams got a trey from Howell, a solo two from Pullen and Gottfriedt converted a 3-point play.

Shelby scored their other seven points at the line on 7-of-12 shooting. Cameron was 3-of-4 late, Howell was 1-of-2, Pullen was 2-of-4 and Gottfriedt made another 1-of-2.

Shelby free throws won them the game. They were out-scored 24 to 20 from the floor, but out-scored Warrensburg by 11 points at the free throw line. Shelby was 20-of-35 and Warrensburg was 9-of-13. The Rams also snared 19 rebounds.
