Shamrocks end three game skid

Kyle Ruediger returned to action scoring 12 points in New Haven's win over Owensville.

Hermann, Mo. – Tuesday night Kyle Ruediger returned after missing the past three games since being injured in the semifinals at South Callaway two weeks ago.  Since Ruediger’s injury New Haven had lost three straight as they entered Tuesday’s first round of the Hermann Tournament.

Ruediger is not quite 100% as Coach Ray Steinhoff limited his playing time to about 25 minutes in New Haven’s win over Owensville, 48-35, advancing them into Thursday’s semifinals.

New Haven led by 12 at half-time, 23-11, but were never able to pull away in the second half, largely in part from hitting just 13 of 20 free throws.  However a win is a win, but New Haven will face a much better Chamois team who they lost to last Friday in overtime, 31-24.

Seth Schenck's game high 14 points came off of 5-9 shooting, hitting one three and was 3-4 from the line.

New Haven is in a similar position as last year when Chamois beat them in the regular season only to come back and knock off the Pirates to take third place in last year’s Hermann Tournament.

New Haven’s win on Tuesday marked the end of a three game losing streak, improving to 9-7.

Seth Schenck led all scores with a game high 14 points followed by Ruediger’s 12 points and the sixth straight game he has hit double figures, scoring 22 points against Silex.

Thursday’s game will start at 7:30 p.m. and will be played at the high school.
