Key Moment: The Pilots raced out to a quick 10-0 lead in the first four minutes of action and never trailed in the game.

Key Moment: After a Holy Cross run gave them a 46-43 lead, the Pilots answered with a 9-0 run of their own with 16:00 remaining to retake the lead for good.

Game Notes: The game’s first five minutes were dominated by the defenses as neither team could dent the scoreboard until Wes Laidig converted a basket putting the Pilots up 2-0. After ten minutes of action, Bethel led the Titans by the score of 16-8. However, IUSB turned the tables on the Pilots by scorching them with a 30-12 run to end the half with a ten point lead at 38-28.

Game Notes: The Pilots wasted no time by racing out to a quick 10-0 lead in the game’s first four minutes of action. The margin grew to seventeen on a basket from Stephen Ward, making it 25-8 at the 12:00 mark of the period. A bucket from Ryne Lightfoot with 8:29 remaining gave Bethel their largest lead of the half at 37-13. From there, the margin never dropped below fifteen, and the Pilots went to the break leading 60-40.

Game Notes: Holy Cross tallied the game’s first two points on a pair of free throws before the Pilots used a quick 15-2 run to take early command of the contest. However, the visitors fought back to within a point at 18-17 with 8:52 left in the period. A few minutes later, two Ryne Lightfoot free throws put Bethel back in front by nine at 29-20. And at the break, Bethel led Holy Cross 37-32.

The second period began with the Pilots coming out of the locker room with good defensive intensity which led to a quick 14-1 spurt, putting Bethel back in front 4239. Over the next several minutes of play, the teams traded baskets, and with 8:00 remaining, the Titans held a slim 52-50 advantage. That’s when Bethel went on a crucial 8-0 run to re-take a 58-52 lead. Still, the Titans hung close and trailed by just a point (6059) late in the contest. Bethel’s Ryne Lightfoot then connected on a huge three-point bucket to make it 63-59 with under 2:00 remaining. After each team tallied a pair of points, Bethel’s Tony Benford then salted the game away with a big three-point basket making the score 68-61 in favor of the Pilots before time ran out.

The second half began with Judson making a 7-2 run to cut the deficit to fifteen before the Pilots responded with an 8-0 spurt to restore the lead back to 70-47. A basket from Wes Laidig at the 9:51 mark, later gave Bethel a 100-72 lead. And a bucket from freshman, Landon Booker, gave the Pilots their largest lead of the night at 118-83.

The second half began with the Saints going on a 14-6 run to take a 46-43 lead at the 16:00 mark. But the Pilots answered with a 9-0 run of their own to retake the advantage 52-46. From that point, Bethel slowly began to pull away, building a 14 point cushion 69-55 with 8:00 remaining. The Pilots managed to hold a double digit lead the rest of the way.

Key Moment: After allowing Judson to within two points, the Pilots broke out on a 20-7 run to take a 15-point lead with under seven minutes remaining.

Key Moment: To start a 23-3 run by the Pilots, Steve Ward contributed seven of eleven straight points to give the Pilots a 75-45 lead.

Game Notes: Judson jumped out to an early 7-0 lead only to see the Pilots answer with a 25-8 run over eight minutes to take a 10-point lead, 25-15. The Eagles battled back to tie the game at 29 with 5:39 left and a Kuban three-pointer gave Judson the lead at the 4:23 mark at 32-31. Judson grew the lead as large as four, until Ryne Lightfoot hit a jumper to end the half for a one-point lead, 46-45.

Game Notes: The story of the first half was the Pilots ability to dominate the offensive boards and control the tempo of the game. However, at 13:55 remaining, the score was knotted at 14-14. The Pilots mounted a run to gain the lead for the final time and get a double digit lead at 34-24 with under seven minutes remaining in the half. The Pilots were able to maintain the lead between four and eight points until halftime, leading 42-36. The second half was a different story, with the Pilots exhibiting terrific defense and forcing four straight turnovers to jump out to a 48-36 lead just minutes in. A few moments later, with the score 52-42, the Pilots began to pull away. Spurred by Steve Ward’s excellent play off the bench, the Pilots spouted off a 23-3 run to give the Pilots their largest lead of the game at 75-45 with 8:20 remaining. Ward contributed seven of eleven straight points during the run. The Pilots managed to hold serve the rest of the game to preserve the 26-point victory.

In the second half, Judson kept pace with the Pilots and retook the lead, 49-48. The Pilots bounced back and took a six-point lead, 61-55, with 14:33 remaining but saw Judson close to within two, 61-59, at the 12:41 mark. At that point, the Pilots used a 20-7 run to take a 15-point lead, 81-66, with just under seven minutes to play. Judson could not recover as Bethel went on for the 14-point win.

The second half was much like the first as the Wildcats were in control much of the way. Bethel closed to within two points several times but each time Indiana Wesleyan pulled away. The Wildcats built their biggest lead of the game at ten points when Aaron Martin hit a three pointer with 4:34 to go, but the Pilots had one more run in them and managed to close the gap once again. After two free throws by Caleb Laidig at the 1:01 mark, Bethel trailed by only two points at 65-67. The Wildcats, however, pulled away for a final time to come away with the 73-67 victory.

The second period began with Goshen going on a 9-2 run to trim the deficit to a single point 47-46. However, the Pilots countered with a 10-4 spurt to stretch the margin back to 57-50 with 14:23 still left to play. Over the next nine minutes of action, the margin remained between 3 and 6 until a pair of free throws from Steve Ward gave the Pilots a 74-67 advantage at the 5:07 mark. The Pilots then closed out the contest by taking care of the basketball and connecting on seven consecutive free throws to seal the victory.

Game Notes: The Pilots made the short trip across town to Holy Cross College to take on the Saints and led wire to wire in posting an 87-63 victory to improve to 8-1 on the season. The Pilots jumped out to an early 10-0 lead and continued to steadily build their advantage throughout the opening period of action.

From that point on, the Pilots coasted to a 41-19 lead at the break. Any thoughts of a Concordia comeback in the second half were quickly put to rest as the Pilots hit the Cardinals with a 19-6 run to increase their advantage to 60-25 with 11:27 remaining in the contest. The Bethel defensive effort continued throughout, and the margin grew to a game-high 41 with Bethel leading 75-34 at the 6:53 mark.

At the 9:50 mark of the period, Bethel had increased the margin to 33 points (8249), and cleared the bench the rest of the way.

Key Moment: A trio of three-pointers by Ryne Lightfoot and Tony Benford highlighted a 13-2 run to put the Pilots on top 70-62 with 4:15 remaining in the contest.

Key Moment: After the Pilots would cut the lead to two, Melvin Calhoun’s runner in the lane with under a minute remaining gave the Seahawks a 74-70 lead.

Game Notes: In the first half of action, Cedarville jumped out to an early 11-4 lead three minutes into the contest. The Pilots responded with an impressive 27-10 run over the next nine minutes of play to take a 31-21 lead. However, over the final minutes of the period, the Yellow Jackets climbed back into contention by out-scoring Bethel 14-6 to close the half with the Pilots clinging to a 37-35 advantage. The second period began with the Yellow Jackets nailing a three-point basket to jump in front 38-37. The Pilots then tallied the next nine points to take a 46-38 lead with 15:30 left to play. Cedarville countered with a 22-11 spurt to go back in front 60-57 at the 8:00 mark. After a Bethel time-out, the Pilots went on the decisive 13-2 run, highlighted by a pair of three-point baskets from Ryne Lightfoot, and another from Tony Benford. The spurt put the Pilots in front to stay 70-62 with 4:15 remaining. From there, Bethel managed the clock offensively and played solid defense to close out the contest.

Game Notes: Two free throws by Tyler Brown on the opening possession would be the only lead the Pilots saw all game. The Seahawks responded with a 16-4 run capped by a Jay Duncan three-pointer to make it 16-6. Tony Benford and Ryne Lightfoot would respond with back-to-back threes of their own to cut it to 16-12, but that would be the closest margin the rest of the half. A Lester Hunte steal and old-fashioned threepoint play pushed the lead to 30-21 with under 7:00 remaining. Then with under 4:00 remaining, an 11-2 run would swell the lead to 42-25 before the Pilots closed the gap to 44-31 at the break. Coming out of intermission, the Pilots did all they could to get back in the game, but foul trouble hampered the efforts. The Pilots would cut the lead to 49-44 to open the second half but the Seahawks responded to push the lead back to 63-47 with 8:00 remaining. The Pilots mounted a furious comeback to cut the deficit to 72-70 with only 1:04 remaining, but a Melvin Calhoun runner in the lane and a couple free throws would ice the game for the Seahawks as the Pilots failed to score again.

Key Moment: After falling behind 5-2 early, the Pilots responded with a 23-0 run to assume command of the game at 25-5.

Key Moment: Tied at 63, Tony Benford’s and Caleb Laidig’s old-fashioned and longrange three point plays gave Bethel a 78-71 lead.

Key Moment: After seeing the lead cut to 67-64, Ryne Lightfoot hit a three-pointer to push the lead to six and give Bethel renewed confidence.

Game Notes: Spring Arbor took an early 5-2 lead before the Pilots hit them with an amazing 23-0 run to assume command at 25-5. A bucket from Wes Laidig gave Bethel their largest lead of the half at 40-14 late in the period. The Cougars were then able to trim the deficit to nineteen (47-28) going into the break.

Game Notes: The contest began with the teams trading baskets early before the Foresters used some red-hot shooting from the outside to take a 23-14 lead at the 10:00 mark of the half. For much of the period, the margin remained between seven and ten points as Huntington continued to knock down a number of long-range three point baskets. However, a pair of back-to-back three’s from Stephen Ward brought the Pilots back to within a point at 41-40. Moments later, the teams went to the intermission with Huntington holding onto a 43-42 lead.

Game Notes: The contest began with the visiting Knights building a five point lead at 18-13 seven minutes into the period. However, the next seven minutes belonged to the Pilots as they went on a 23-6 run to take the lead 36-24. Bethel continued their aggressive play for the remainder of the half and a three-point basket from Tony Benford with 0:08 remaining gave the home team a 54-36 advantage at the break.

In the second half, Spring Arbor began play with a 5-0 run to cut the margin to 47-33. But the Pilots responded with a 16-8 spurt to re-establish a 22 point cushion (63-41). A few minutes later, a Tyler Brown free throw gave the Pilots their biggest lead of the night at 77-49. From there, Bethel coasted to the finish line, winning an important conference contest.

The second half began with the home team once again building a quick nine point advantage at 51-42. But the Pilots answered with a 10-3 run to close to within two (54-52). Then with just under 10:00 remaining, a Ryne Lightfoot three pointer knotted the score at 63-63. That’s when the Pilots began to make their final push to victory as Tony Benford converted on an old-fashioned three-point play, followed by long-range three’s from Caleb Laidig and Benford, giving Bethel a 78-71 lead. Forced to foul the rest of the way, the Foresters never recovered as Bethel converted on 9 of 11 from the charity stripe to salt away the win.

The second half of action began with Marian using a 15-7 spurt to close to within ten (61-51) at the 12:22 mark. Bethel continued to struggle over the next few minutes on the offensive end and the Knights were able to slice the margin to just three (67-64) with 7:42 remaining. On the next Pilot possession, Ryne Lightfoot found the bottom of the net on a huge three-point bucket to increase the difference back to six. The basket seemed to give Bethel renewed confidence on offense as they steadily re-built the lead to 12 points (86-74) with 2:08 left to play. The Knights were unable to get any closer than seven the rest of the way.

Key Moment: Trailing 7-6, the Pilots rattled off a quick 16-3 run reminiscent of the old Goodman magic and seize control of the game.

Key Moment: After rallying to within a point at 74-73, the Trojans hit five free throws to ice the game in the final minute of play.

Key Moment: With 0.4 seconds on the clock and the Pilots down three, Tony Benford missed the first of three free throws to potentially tie the game.

Game Notes: The win was a milestone as it was the 100th win for the senior class and the 400th and possibly last win in Goodman. Both teams would jockey for the lead in the game’s opening minutes. At the 15:00 mark, the Pilots held an 11-10 advantage and were not willing to give it up. The Pilots rattled off a 15-2 run to gain command of the game at 26-12, before the Warriors closed to 26-18 with 7:00 remaining. The Pilots grew their lead to a first half high 19 points at 42-23 with just over a minute remaining. The Warriors scored the last four points to make it 42-27 going to intermission.

Game Notes: In the first half of action, the visiting Pilots were lethal from behind the three-point arc as they connected on 10 of 15 attempts to build an eleven point cushion at the break (45-34). However, Taylor used the first five minutes of the second period to climb back into the game by virtue of an 11-4 run. Bethel managed to hold onto the lead until the 7:00 mark when the Trojans jumped in front 62-61. Taylor increased their lead to 69-62 before the Pilots rallied to within a point (74-73) with 1:00 remaining. However, the Trojans were able to hold on by hitting five free throws down the stretch.

Game Notes: The battle of top ten teams saw each side battle closely to open the contest. A three point shot by Tony Benford at the 15:57 mark of the first half gave the Pilots their largest lead of the first half at eight. The Pilots would hold that eight point lead as late as the 9:47 mark of the first half before St. Francis battled back to draw within one point to close the first half of play.

To open the second half, the Warriors closed the gap to 49-37 with 14:23 remaining, but that was as close as they would get. A pair of Ryne Lightfoot three-pointers ignited a 20-9 run by the Pilots to break the game open at 69-46 with 6:00 remaining. The Pilots would use their defense to close out the game as 85-60 winners.

The second half began as the first half did until Jordan Bowerman sunk a free throw at the 8:48 mark to knot the game at 63 for the final time. From that point, the Cougars went on a 14-3 run to build an 11 point lead at the 5:23 mark of the second half. The Pilots managed to battle back within one on a three by Tony Benford with 0:10 remaining. After two St. Francis free throws, Bethel had one last chance to tie as Qadr Owens sent Benford to the line with 0.4 seconds remaining and three foul shots. Benford missed the first free throw and made the second to get the Pilots within two points. Benford intentionally missed the third but the Pilots were unable to corral the rebound.

January 30, 2010 Goshen, Ind. . Roman Gingerich R.F. Center

Key Moment: After seeing the lead shrink to 72-69, the Pilots converted from the free throw line to seal the win in the final 1:36.

Key Moment: Joe Welch drained a pair of free throws to push a tentative five point lead up to 75-68 with 0:50 in the game.

Key Moment: Ryne Lightfoot nailed a near-half court jump shot at the halftime buzzer to send the Pilots into the break with the momentum, leading 34-32.

Game Notes: The game began with Bethel and Grace trading baskets until the Lancers were able to take a 22-16 lead midway through the period. However, the Pilots used a 20-9 run to jump in front 36-31 with 3:24 left until halftime. Each team managed to score nine more points before the break and Bethel took a 45-40 lead into the intermission.

Game Notes: As you would expect, the contest began with both teams exchanging baskets before Bethel managed to build a modest 18-15 lead with 10:16 left in the period. A bucket from Wes Laidig pushed the lead to 25-19 before the Wildcats rallied to tie the score at 27-27 at the 4:51 mark. However, over the next few minutes, the Pilots went on a 13-5 run to assume control at 40-32. IWU trimmed the deficit to five before a basket from Caleb Laidig as time ran out gave the home team a 42-35 lead at the break. The second stanza began with Bethel converting the first three points to go up 4535. However, the Pilots went cold from the field over the next seven minutes and the Wildcats went on a 15-0 run to jump in front 50-45. Bethel answered with a 14-5 spurt to re-take the lead 59-55 with 9:07 remaining. The Bethel lead remained between one and four over the next seven minutes of action until a pair of free throws from Joey Welch pushed the margin to seven (75-68) with 0:50 left to play. Bethel then was able to seal the victory by connecting from the charity stripe and collect an extremely hardearned win.

Game Notes: Bethel jumped out to a quick 4-0 lead, but then went cold over the next six minutes of action as Goshen established a 16-8 advantage midway through the period. The Pilots used a 13-5 run to get even at 21-21, but a three-point basket gave the Maple Leafs a 24-21 lead once again. The Pilots answered with a 10-4 spurt to take the lead 31-28 late in the half. Goshen tallied four points in a row to jump back in front 32-31 with 2.6 seconds left to play. The Pilots then executed the final play of the half to perfection as Ryne Lightfoot took a pass from Joey Welch and nailed a longrange three-point basket at the horn, sending Bethel to the break with a 34-32 lead. The second stanza began with Goshen retaking the lead 40-39 before the Pilots went on a big 20-5 run to take the largest lead of the game at 59-45 with just over ten minutes left to play. However, the home team rallied to close to within three (66-63) before Wes Laidig converted a basket for Bethel to increase the margin back to five in the closing minutes. A three-point bucket from the Maple Leafs made it 68-66, but that’s as close as they would get as Bethel’s Tyler Brown connected on five of six from the line down the stretch to secure the win.

Halftime Score: Bethel 42-35

Halftime Score: Bethel 34-32

After Grace converted the first two points of the second stanza, the Pilots scored the next ten to take a 55-42 lead. Bethel continued to control the action and held a double digit lead until the Lancers cut the margin to eight (63-55) at the 11:06 mark. Still, Bethel held the upper hand by at least six points until the Lancers got to within three (72-69) with 1:36 left in regulation. But that’s as close as the Lancers would get as Bethel hit their free throws down the stretch to seal the victory.

Key Moment: After a seven point lead and a Pilot timeout Caleb and Wes Laidig spurred a 9-2 run to tie the game and sieze the momentum.

Key Moment: After Huntington regained the lead 38-36, the Pilots answered with a 12-0 run to take the lead for good with 15:19 left.

Key Moment: The Pilots gave up the lead at the 7:18 mark in the first half on a Knights jumper at 21-19 after leading 15-6.

Game Notes: In a gym that the Pilots had not won in since the 2004-05 season, the Pilots built an early lead by as many as nine points four minutes into the contest. 39% first half shooting, however, kept the contest close as the Pilots went into the locker room with a four point lead.

Game Notes: The Foresters jumped out to an early 12-7 lead before the Pilots rallied to go in front 14-12 at the 13:59 mark. The rest of the period was a back and forth battle which featured nine ties and three lead changes. In addition, neither team was able to build more than a four point cushion as the Pilots went to the break with a 36-35 advantage.

Game Notes: In a game that turned out to be a sloppy shooting and foul plagued affair, the Pilots jumped out to a 10-4 lead on a snowy night in Indianapolis. Bethel continued to build a lead in the first half and held its largest lead of the contest at the 14:23 mark of the first half at 15-6. From that point, however, the scrappy Knights squad began to battle back and eventually took a 21-19 lead on a Knights jumper at the 7:18 mark. Marian eventually carried a three point lead into the locker room at 32-29. Things began to unravel in the second half as neither team was able to get into an offensive rhythm with 48 fouls called on the night. Marian took advantage of the charity shots shooting 27-35 from the line to build a double digit lead midway through the second half. The Pilots were never really able to challenge the Knights in the second half as they shot 38% (23-61) from the field and an abysmal 14% (3-21) from beyond the arc.

The second half began with the No. 19 ranked Cougars on fire as they built a seven point lead on a three pointer by Matt VanPelt with 12:41 to go in the contest. The seven point lead for Spring Arbor would be their largest lead of the contest as Bethel used a timeout to regroup and steal momentum away from the Cougar faithful. The Pilots used a 9-2 run after the timeout to tie the game up for the fifth time of the night. The Pilots began to build a lead throughout the remainder of the second half thanks to offensive star Caleb Laidig whose 22 point 11 rebound effort led the Pilots second half surge. Laidig’s offensive rebound off a missed free throw and subsequent three pointer gave the Pilots an eight point advantage at the 8:47 mark of the second half.

The second half began with Huntington hitting a three-point basket to jump back in front 38-36. However, Bethel answered with a critical 12-0 run to assume a 48-38 lead with 15:19 left to play.

Key Moment: Wes Laidig’s basket just before half gave the Pilots their largest lead of the first half 40-21.

Key Moment: A Caleb Laidig basket with 7:39 remaining gave the Pilots a 54-39 lead and the Cougars were unable to get within single digits the rest of the way.

Key Moment: After getting to within two points, the Wildcats used an 11-2 run to close out the first half in front by 38-27.

Game Notes: Both teams got off to a rather sluggish start as the offenses had a difficult time finding the basket. As a result, the Pilots held an 11-10 lead at the 10:56 mark of the period. However, Bethel then went on a big 18-5 run to extend their lead to 29-15 with 4:27 left until the break. And when Bethel’s Wes Laidig hit a bucket just before half, the Pilots had their largest lead at intermission, 40-21. The second half began with the Pilots scoring the first four points to extend to a 44-21 advantage, and the margin grew steadily throughout the rest of the game. A basket from Jordan Bowerman at the 9:48 mark gave the Pilots a 30 point cushion (61-31), and a field goal from Derek Moser with 1:08 remaining gave the Pilots their largest lead of the contest at 87-52.

Game Notes: In the first half of action, Bethel jumped out to a quick 7-0 lead as Tyler Brown tallied all seven points in the early going. However, the Cougars answered with a 7-0 run of their own to knot things at 7-7. The Pilots then scored the next eight points to re-take a 15-7 lead at the 13:37 mark. The margin grew to eleven (24-13) on a Ryne Lightfoot three-point basket before Spring Arbor charged back to trim the deficit to just three at 24-21. And at the break, Bethel held a 29-24 lead over the visiting Cougars.

Game Notes: Bethel fell behind early 10-4 before rallying to within a pair of points 27-25. However, the Wildcats used an 11-2 run to close out the first half in front by eleven 38-27. The margin grew to 14 at 43-29 early in the second period before the Pilots went on a 12-6 spurt to close the gap to 49-41with just over 10:00 remaining. And when Caleb Laidig converted on a jump shot minutes later, the Pilots had narrowed the margin to just five (61-56). But that’s as close as Bethel would get as the Wildcats were able to hold on for the win.

67 64 OT

March 12, 2010 Point Lookout, Mo. . Keeter Gymnasium

Key Moment: A Steve Ward steal and layup at the 14:09 mark in the second half brought Bethel within four points and gave renewed life to the Pilots.

Key Moment: Tied at 64 with 0:21 remaining in overtime, Glenn Dalcourt put the Eagles ahead for good on a jumper.

Game Notes: The Falcons’ biggest lead of the first half came early when Chris Jackson grabbed the ball off of a turnover and hit a three-pointer to go up 10-2.

Game Notes: The game lived up to its seeding as the two teams exchanged the lead seven times in the opening half. Bethel went on the games first substantial run, when, down one (12-11), the Pilots outscored Embry-Riddle 14-2 to open up a 25-14 advantage. Bethel held the Eagles to just one field goal over a five minute stretch during the run. A Ryne Lightfoot three-pointer followed by a three-point play by Tony Benford gave the Pilots their largest lead of the game (33-19) just before the half. Embry-Riddle opened the second half with a pair of three-pointers by Blake Touchard and Danny Krazit to move to within two, 37-35. Bethel responded with a run of its own and after two free throws by Wes Laidig, pushed its lead back to seven with under six minutes left. Another Touchard three-pointer, his third of the game, cut it to one and Embry-Riddle grabbed its first lead since early in the first half on five free throws, the final two by Ray Graham with under a minute to go. Down three (60-57), Bethel came out of a timeout and Benford delivered a game-tying three-pointer with seconds left to send the game into overtime. The teams traded baskets for most of the extra period and the game was tied at 64 after a jumper by Lightfoot. On the ensuing possession, Embry-Riddle guard Glenn Dalcourt put the Eagles ahead on a jumper with 21 seconds left. Bethel came down but missed on their final two attempts to tie it in the closing seconds.

In the second half, the momentum shifted into the hands of Bethel. Stephen Ward stripped the ball from Brett Steven at the 14:09 mark and took it to the other end untouched to bring the Pilots within four points. A few minutes later, Bethel took its first lead of the game with a Stephen Ward three-pointer to make it 48-45. The struggle continued between the two teams until the end of the game when Friends was forced to foul. The Pilots hit seven of their last nine free throws to preserve the win and advance to the second round for the third straight year.
