Jason Bolha had a big game for the Indians, hitting six three-pointers on his way to tallying 28 points. Mason Mollohan added 16 and Seth Young finished with eight.

Cardington Pirates

Cardington led at the half against visiting Centerburg on Friday night, but a big third quarter propelled the Trojans to a 57-49 win.
