Lima, OH – The Barons fell to OU Eastern 58 to 70 despite a 32 point effort by Ryan Schroeder (Ft. Jennings).
With four minutes remaining the Barons were able to cut an eight point deficit to just three points, but that would be the closest they would get for the remainder as OU Eastern showed poise knocking down several key free throws.
In addition to Schroeder’s 32, Charlie Patterson (Allen East) netted 12 points in a very physical game that saw a player foul out for each side.
The Lady Barons also dropped a hard fought game to OU Eastern tonight in a high scoring affair 72 to 95, matching their highest point total on the season. Key contributors for the Lady Barons were Jessica Lehman (Pandora Gilboa) with 31, Alli Brodman (Bluffton) with 15, Amanda Horstman (Fort Jennings) with 11, and Heather Jacobs (Elida) added 10.
The Barons and Lady Barons return to action tomorrow, Saturday January 24th at 1pm and 3pm. Come out and support the Barons, admission is free to all Ohio State Lima/Rhodes State College Faculty, Staff, and Students.
