ASHTABULA TOWNSHIP — Basketball is commonly referred to as a make or miss game and Struthers took care of the makes in Tuesday night’s 76-59 All-American Conference win at Edgewood.
Struthers (5-5, 3-2 AAC) opened the game on a 9-2 run, then exploded behind the three-point line. The Wildcats made nine 3-pointers in the first half and by the time they missed their sixth shot of the game, they had already connected on seven from behind the arc. They finished the game with 15 made triples.
Ryan Carson capped off Struthers’ first-half shooting display by banking in a 3-pointer from straight away, seconds before the halftime buzzer to stretch the lead to 43-15.
“When they’re shooting that good, there’s not much you can do other than just keep playing hard and that’s what we did,” Edgewood coach John Bowler said.
The All-American Conference is an OHSAA-sanctioned league, created in 2008 as the result of the merger between the Trumbull Athletic Conference and the Metro Athletic Conference in Ohio. The league has 21 different member schools, with 17 sports offered throughout fall, winter and spring sports seasons.
