Resorters have encouraging start to season

REEDSVILLE – The Elkhart Lake-Glenbeulah Resorters gave a strong Reedsville team a good battle before falling, 56-38, in boys basketball action here Tuesday night.

The nonconference game was both teams’ season opener. Resorter head coach Jim Brown stressed that the game was closer than the score indicated.

“Reedsville was one game away from state last season and has all the pieces back. We battled to within nine twice with the ball in the fourth quarter and just ran out of gas,” said Brown.

“The kids played hard and were resilient. It was a great test for us.”

The Panthers pulled away late by hitting several free throws. In the fourth quarter, Reedsville was 12-for-21 at the foul line. The Panthers outscored Elkhart 18-3 at the charity stripe for the game.

Senior forward Antonio Bett led the Resorters in scoring with a game-high 25 points, including five three-point goals. Bett exploded for 11 points in the final period.

Elkhart got off to a slow start and trailed 16-6 after one quarter. The Resorters were down 26-13 at halftime. Brock Gilsdorf keyed the Panthers’ attack with 18 points, including 15 in the first half. Gilsdorf erupted for 11 points in the opening quarter when he sank three treys.
