Bethesda remains unbeaten

BROWNSBURG — Despite some sloppy play by both teams, the Bethesda Christian girls’ basketball team remained undefeated at 4-0 with a 31-29 defeat of Indianapolis International (0-3) Monday night.

“That does feel great and the girls are just hustling and moving,” Bethesda coach Wayne Leichty said of the Patriot’s record. “But I could tell that with three games straight in three days and we came back with one day off that they were spent. They fought through it and got it done.”

That sluggish residue lingered throughout the first half as the two teams combined for nearly 41 turnovers and the contest was a virtual standstill in the first two periods.

Bethesda scored the first and second field goals of the game at the 5:09 and 3:49 marks of the first quarter, respectively. But the Patriots only hit five free throws for the remainder of the half. The Gryphons were not much better as they tallied eight points and led 10-9 at the break.

Leichty has preached fundamentals since coming back to the program he revived several years ago. But with tired legs and a defense the Patriots had not seen before, Bethesda turned it over 22 times in the first half.            

“They threw a 1-2-2 zone at us that we had a hard time adjusting with and where our space needed to be,” Leichty said.  “We tried to run our standard offense we were familiar with but couldn’t defeat that 1-2-2.”

Bethesda came out with a new game plan and renewed energy after the break and was led by freshman Morgan Reffeitt’s 15 second-half points. Reffeitt led all players with a game-high 16 points.

“She is one of our freshmen and I kind of saw this coming,” Leichty said. “She came out big for us. By keeping her mentally focused she will be a great asset for this team.”
