FPS staff report

Carrollton High School boys basketball
Carrollton senior, Stephen Ericksen, brings down a rebound against Louisville last Friday night.

The Northeastern Buckeye Conference season opener for Carrollton proved to be somewhat of a challenge for the Warriors last Friday night against visiting Louisville.

A steal and score by senior Andrew Collins with under a minute left to play proved to be the difference as the Warriors held on for a 48-47 win over the Leopards.

The win improved the Warriors to 3-0 overall and 1-0 in the NBC.

Carrollton led by as many as 10 points late in the first half, but the Leopards chipped away at the Warrior lead and took their first lead of the game since the first quarter at 40-38 at the five-minute mark of the fourth quarter.

The Warriors led 15-14 after the first quarter, 30-22 at halftime and 38-35 after three quarters of play.

Collins led the Warriors in scoring with 12 points, three rebounds and four steals, while senior Stephen Ericksen added nine points, nine rebounds and three blocked shots. Sophomore guard Zade Deitz also finished with nine points for the Warriors.

Shooting, the Warriors hit 17-of-51 shots from the floor and just 8-of-18 from the line. They finished with 29 rebounds and 11 turnovers.

For the Leopards, two players hit double figures. Alex Schooley led the way with 12 points and Alex Hollifield added 11.

From the floor, the Leopards hit 18-of-39 shots and went 7-for-9 from the line. They turned the ball over 14 times and pulled down 18 rebounds with Ronnie Carter pulling down seven.

In the junior varsity game, the Warriors fell to the Leopards 46-31.

Daniel Leary led the Warriors with 14 points, while Brandon Johnson added nine and Troy Fairclough and Avery Wilson four points each.

Earlier in the week, the Warriors hosted East Liverpool last Tuesday.

Carrollton jumped out to an 18-8 first quarter lead and rode it to a 75-68 non-league win.

Ericksen led the Warriors with 25 points and 12 rebounds, while sophomore Caleb Pasiuk added 15 points and Deitz 10.

The Warriors led 34-26 at halftime and 55-44 going into the final frame.
