Roundup: Hickory tops Rockets in OT; WM, Lakeview roll


Herald staff

---- — Last fall, leading LaBrae High’s football team was a quarterback named Peyton. And on the basketball team’s bench this winter is a Coach K.

But in Brookfield, the brand is all about balance ... and big boy Jeremy Quinlan.

Quinlan connected for a game-high 25-point, 13-rebound double-double Tuesday night, leading the host Warriors to a 66-61 win over LaBrae.

Quinlan outplayed LaBrae’s NCAA Division I prospect Peyton Aldridge. Actually, Aldridge annexed a 16-point, 8-rebound, 6-assist line, but missed his last 6 floor shots — all during the 4th frame.

Tuesday’s tilt could serve as a prelude to another meeting in about a month, as both clubs are in the Howland Sectional.

“ ... Down the road, on (Route) 82 here,” 1st-year Brookfield bench boss Bill Kovach noted, adding, “Hopefully.”

Though a mid-January regular-season game, it served as a benchmark for Brookfield (9-1), Kovach confided.

“It is, because they have a very good team and they also have a very special player, a Division I player who dominates a lot of games. And I thought Jeremy Quinlan showed his level of excellence with his defense on Aldridge.

“He mades three’s, but I thought his defense was the difference in the game, at least in the first half,” Kovach continued.

After an 0-for-4 start, Quinlan connected on 4 consecutive 3-point field goals as the Warriors went from a 19-8 first-quarter deficit to assuming a 27-25 margin at intermission.

Then Quinlan had help from the unheralded Collin Harkulich, who hit 8 of hits 17 points during the 3rd period as Brookfield built a 44-37 bulge entering the 4th frame.

But Brookfield’s lead evaporated as the Vikings vaulted to the first 7 points of the period, With 5:10 remaining an Aldridge free throw drew the Vikes as close as they would get, 48-47. Additionally, Quinlan had drawn his 4th personal foul with 5:28 left.

During the home stretch, however, Quinlan’s twin, Jimmy, converted 6 freebies while Derrick Dickson drained 3 — the last 2 of which with 24 ticks to play. Jimmy Quinlan — “our leader ... he’s the floor general of our team, a coach on the floor” Kovach commented — connected on his last 2 with 5.9 seconds, boosting Brookfield to a 5-point bulge.

“The balance was excellent, and I thought our movement on offense, we finally had some good flow, people were cutting hard. When we missed, we had people crashing the boards,” Kovach commented.

Dickson delivered 9 points and 3 assists, Jimmy Quinlan contributed a 6-point, 8-assist, 8-rebound line, and Ryan Mosora mustered a pair of 1st-half treys when the Warriors went on their run.

Aldridge annexed only 4 of 16 floor shots as LaBrae (8-2) landed 21 of 53 field goals (39.6 percent) and only 14 of 26 free throws. Also, Coach Chad Kiser’s club — which meets West Middlesex Sunday at 8 p.m. at Youngstown’s Covelli Centre — made 13 miscues, 11 during the 2nd half.

Rebounding, which Kovach felt was key, specifically during Brookfield’s 1st-half bounce-back, was won by the Warriors, 39-26. But Brookfield committed 21 turnovers, though led by Jeremy Quinlan’s 10-for-20 long-range markmanship, shot 21 for 46 from the field (45.6).—By Ed Farrell, Herald assistant sports editor.
