Eagles soar over Quakers

PLAINFIELD — After an inspired first half of play on senior night, the Plainfield Quakers lost some steam as the game went forward.

Zionsville downed Plainfield  70-48 after a close contest through two quarters.

“They obviously run their stuff very well and we got caught up in some screens and they made some shots,” Plainfield coach Andy Weaver said. “I think we ended up with a series of quick possessions and quick turnovers.”

The Quakers (5-14) trailed 27-22 at halftime and cut the deficit to three after a Will Williams layup to open the second half.

The Eagles (10-9) scored nine consecutive points to stretch their lead to 37-24 and effectively take control of the game.

In the third quarter, Zionsville scored 25 points, almost single-handedly matching its entire first half output.

Plainfield turned the ball over nine times and scored 10 points in the third quarter.

“It went from about three to eight or nine quick. Then it went from nine to 17, 18 awfully quick,” Weaver said of the Quaker deficit.

Contributing to the Eagles solid second half play was their ability to hit from beyond the arc. Zionsville made four of its nine 3-pointers in the third quarter and shot 53 percent for the game.

“They are a good shooting team first of all,” Weaver said. “Second of all, we were a little slow on closeouts, slow on when to switch out of screens and they moved the ball awfully well.”

Senior point guard Andrew Dakich scored a game-high 19 points on 7 of 9 shooting for the Eagles. He was able to create shots for others, as well as make his own.

“You are not going to turn him over,” Weaver said. “He handles it so well and he shoots it so well. That’s a pretty good combination.”

To open the contest, Plainfield showed no signs of being intimidated by the Hoosier Crossroads Conference school. The Quakers led 4-0 and were tied at 10-10 in the first quarter.
