OTTAWA — It didn't take long for Ottawa-Glandorf to start frustrating a young Lima Bath team Friday night.

Employing their aggressive style of full court defense the Titans were able to force several first quarter turnovers. Those turnovers lead to points on the offense end as O-G built an early lead on their way to a 102-48 Western Buckeye League win over the Wildcats. O-G moved to 2-0 in the WBL and 7-1 overall, while Bath is 0-2 in the league and 1-7 overall.

Bath actually took a 2-0 lead in the contest before the Titans slowly took control. A 6-0 run by O-G gave them the lead for good as Ben Westrick scored four of the six points and Owen Hiegel converted a steal into two points. The Titans had an 11-6 lead before they went on a 16-0 run for a 27-6 lead. Westrick, Hiegel and Braden Fortman all had a three-pointer during the run.

Bath's Devan Grigsby ended the O-G run with a basket with 2:11 left in the quarter before Andrew Stahr hit a three-pointer for the Wildcats. Two three's by Fortman helped the Titans to a 33-13 first quarter lead. Westrick scored 12 points in the opening quarter for the Titans and Fortman added 11 points as he hit three three-pointers in the quarter.

Ottawa-Glandorf continued to pull away in the third quarter as they outscored the Wildcats 26-12 for 59-25 halftime lead. The Titans added a 28-11 run in the third quarter as all five Titan starters departed the game in the quarter. The Titans had an 87-36 lead going to the final quarter.

In the final quarter, the Titans outscored Bath 15-12 as two Owen Nichols free throws with 1:28 left helped O-G reach the century mark.

Fortman paced the Titans with a career high 24 points as he hit canned six three-pointers in the game. Westrick added 17 points and grabbed eight rebounds, while Hiegel added 15 points and Brennan Blevins hit four three-pointers to finish with 14 points.

The Titans hit 16 three-pointers in the game to break a school record. The previous record was 14 three's in a game, twice, in 2017 against Liberty Center and against Leipsic in 2-14. Seven different players hit a three-pointer in the win.

Ethan White had eight points and grabbed eight rebounds for the Titans.
