  • Creston comeback sinks Glenwood

    Creston erased an eight-point fourth quarter lead to hand Glenwood a 46-44 loss in the Rams’ home opener Friday in Hawkeye 10 Conference boys basketball.

    The Panthers (2-0 overall, 1-0 in the Hawkeye 10 Conference) out-scored the Rams (1-1 overall, 0-1 in the Hawkeye 10 Conference) 19-7 in the fourth quarter thanks mostly to the clutch shooting of leading scorer Jay Wolfe. The senior scored 11 of his game-high 28 points in the fourth quarter to rally the Panthers.

    The Glenwood girls basketball team used it’s full-court press to build a 19-2 first quarter lead and never looked back in a 64-17 season-opening victory over Council Bluffs Thomas Jefferson last Tuesday.

    The Rams’ trapping, full-court pressure forced the Yellowjackets to turn the ball over seven times and use two timeouts to regroup in the first quarter alone.

    “That gave us a cushion to start with and then we got into a pretty good rhythm scoring after that,” said Glenwood coach Barry Loeffelbein.
