ROSWELL -- Etowah’s comeback attempt came up just short Tuesday in a 65-55 Region 4AAAAAAA loss to Roswell.
With the loss and Walton's win over Cherokee, the Eagles (12-9, 6-2) fell to the region’s No. 2 seed, while the Hornets (19-4, 8-0) clinched the top seed heading into the region tournament, but Etowah coach Jason Dasinger said the loss does not change this season’s goal.
“All we have to do is win one region game, and we’re in the same spot they are,” he said. “One of our goals was not to win a regular-season region championship. We’ve done that. Our goal is to win the region tournament, and we got better (Tuesday). Credit to them. They played a great game, but it’s going to help us moving forward.”
Roswell jumped out to an early lead thanks to a box-and-one defense that focused on Jaxon Etter and took the Etowah offense out of rhythm.
After scoring the first four points of the game, Etowah gave up 22 of the game’s next 25 and never led again.
“I have to do a better job of putting guys in a position to score,” Dasinger said. “I didn’t do that. They were taking Jaxon away, but we have 15 guys who can score on this team. It was poor coaching on our part.”
Etter finished with 10 points. Matt Lane also added 10, while P.G. Forde and Bryce Dotson each helped pick up the slack with eight points each.
The Eagles finally got their offense going after halftime with runs of 8-0 and 6-0 in the third quarter. Those runs included three offensive rebounds that resulted in six second-chance points in the frame to cut the deficit to 40-37 heading into the fourth.
“The kids played hard,” Dasinger said. “They always do. They worked hard, crashed the glass and made plays. Despite my bad coaching, they made plays. That’s why I love this team. If we bring that type of energy, I like our chances.”
Roswell was able to pull away again in the fourth quarter behind 21 points from George Pridgett and 19 points from Kolby Wade, but Dasinger said he expects his team to improve from the experience.
The Eagles will play again Friday against Woodstock, where Dasinger said he expects his team to continue to improve before it makes a run at its third straight region title.
“We still have everything in front of us,” he said. “We’re the No. 2 seed in the region. That gets us into the state tournament. That was a goal of ours. Hopefully we can get there as a region champion again.”
“One child, one teacher, one book, one pen can change the world.”
