  • Kaneland tips Yorkville Feb 19, 2011 12:40 AM
    In the opening quarter of Friday night’s Northern Illinois Big 12 East Conference showdown in Yorkville, Kaneland put on an exhibition of top flight high school basketball. The Knights dominated not just both halves of the floor, but every inch of it. They did whatever they wanted with the ball, shut down Yorkville’s offense, led 25-7 after one quarter, and the game actually seemed even more one-sided than that score would suggest. By the time the final horn sounded, not a second too soon as far as the Knights were concerned, they would need every single point that they managed to wring out of the final three quarters, as they held on for a 53-52 win. The win puts Kaneland (16-8, 7-2) in a position to win the conference title going into next week’s game at Rochelle. The Hubs also are 7-2 after their 88-87 win over DeKalb Friday in double overtime. Led by Chaon Denlinger and Daniel Helm, who combined to score 21 points in the opening quarter, the Knights sprinted to a 9-0 lead, three minutes into the game. “They beat us by 20 the first time, and maybe they underestimated us a little bit,” Denlinger said. “There were a lot of open lanes to drive, and open shots, and we hit them.” Denlinger knocked down a trio of 3s in the first quarter to stake Kaneland to a 25-5 lead as Yorkville (15-10, 5-4) scrambled to find an answer. The Foxes scored the last hoop of the first quarter. At the time it did not seem especially significant. But the next time Kaneland would score, its lead would be down to 8. “Early on, we caught fire and caught them off-guard,” Kaneland coach Brian Johnson said. “But we knew the lead wasn’t going to stay as big as it had been, not against a team like Yorkville.” The game’s turnaround was not gradual, it was sudden, as if two different teams had taken the floor to start the second quarter. Kaneland began handling the ball as though it was covered in grease. The Knights committed 10 turnovers in the second quarter, and in the process relinquished every bit of momentum that they worked so hard to build at the start of the game. “We did have a lot of turnovers, but that’s going to happen against a team like that,” Johnson said. “I was so proud of the way the boys came out ready to go and play hard on (Yorkville’s) home floor.” Kaneland held a 29-21 lead at the break, and the Foxes would trim that gap to 30-25 midway through the third quarter, as the Knights managed just one hoop over a 12-minute stretch that began at the end of the first quarter, included all of the second, and the first 3 minutes of the third. Yorkville’s Ryan Herron took control of the floor in the second half, scoring 12 of his game-high 17 in the final 16 minutes. Herron and teammate Jordan Jones kept the Foxes within striking distance, and when fellow senior Derek Fitzpatrick closed out the third quarter with a 3-pointer, everything appeared to be moving in Yorkville’s direction. “If (Yorkville) had gotten the lead they would’ve been tough to beat,” Kaneland’s Tyler Callaghan said. Callaghan stepped up in the second half to give his team a much needed physical presence, while also knocking down a pair of key baskets. But it was one the smallest guys on the floor who would prove to be the difference-maker down the stretch. Zach Ringhouse can help the Knights win games in a variety of ways. One of the biggest is at the free-throw line, where he is shooting just a fraction under 90 percent. Ringhouse, who began the fourth quarter by nailing a 3-pointer, was exactly the player Kaneland wanted on the line in the final seconds. And that’s where he found himself with 13.1 left and his team clinging to a 51-50 lead. “I just stepped up there, I knew the gym was going to be really loud, but I stayed focused on the basket, and calm as possible,” Ringhouse said. After Ringhouse sank both free throws, the Foxes had one final gasp. But when Fitzpatrick’s 3-point attempt failed, they had to settle for two. With 1.1 showing on the clock, all Kaneland had to do was inbound the ball, and again they called on Ringhouse, who got the job done. “We were able to shut them down, and get some timely rebounds toward the end of the game,” Johnson said. “That was a really big win, and it was nice to see the boys finish it off.”

  • Yorkville overtakes Kaneland in second half Jan 8, 2011 1:00 AM
    Maybe Kaneland and Yorkville wanted to play football. At least it seemed that way in a frantic, physical Northern Illinois Big 12 East division basketball clash in which Yorkville broke open a close game late in the third quarter Friday night to spark a 56-39 pasting of host Kaneland. The wild game featured numerous loose-ball battles, turnovers and collisions, but Yorkville cashed in on its biggest advantage when the game came to a halt for free throws. The Foxes sank 19 of 21 from the charity stripe to Kaneland’s 7 of 13. “They say if a team is going to make more free throws than you are going to attempt, they are probably going to win the game,” Kaneland coach Brian Johnson said after watching Yorkville can 12 of those free throws in the final quarter in sealing the victory. Yorkville guard Kyle Dhuse was a thorn in Kaneland’s side all night, tallying a game-high 19 points but swinging the game’s momentum in his team’s favor with two key plays late in the third quarter. Dhuse stole a pass near midcourt and drove inside for a basket that lifted Yorkville to a lead it would never relinquish at 33-32. Seconds later, he made the play of the night by grabbing a rebound under the Kaneland basket and then driving the length of the court to power inside for a layup and a 35-32 lead. The sequence sparked a Yorkville charge that carried over into the final quarter and resulted in a 21-7 run to close out the game. “I saw an opening and kept going, and they didn’t stop me, so I just took it,” Dhuse said of his key full-court drive. “Coach said right from the beginning that this was going to be a physical game.” The game was evenly matched in all aspects through most of the first three quarters, but Kaneland fell into a troubling trend. The Knights’ 22 turnovers were only two more than Yorkville, but they coughed up the ball four times each at the end of the second and third quarters. Yorkville coach Jerry Farber said that stat line occurred according to plan. “Our bench is deep, and that’s one of our strengths,” Farber said. “And when we press people it usually is toward the end of a quarter when the opponent is tired out; that’s one of the plusses we had.” Those late turnovers caused two key momentum swings as Yorkville (9-5, 3-1) scored the final 7 points of the second quarter to erase a 22-19 Kaneland lead to go into the lockerrom at halftime with a 26-22 edge. And the blitz at the end of the third quarter turned a 32-29 Kaneland lead into a 42-34 Yorkville advantage entering the final frame. “We knew it was going to be a tough place to get a win, and I wasn’t sure how the kids would play because it has been a week since we played last,” Farber said. “But I thought the kids picked up where they left off in playing well at the Plano Tournament.” Kaneland (8-5, 3-1) was led by Daniel Helm and Kory Harner, with 9 points each, while Josh Williams and Derek Piszczeck each chipped in 8 points for the Foxes. “Yorkville did everything we thought they would do, and they are really tough,” Johnson said. “Dhuse is the wild card on that team, he really hurt us tonight. “They really go to the rim well and their big men are very active and very long,” Johnson said of Yorkville in explaining why it was so difficult for his team to corral rebounds cleanly. “That’s hard to game-plan for, and they tip a lot of loose balls and their guys go after them and get to them.”

  • Kaneland improves to 7-0 Oct 9, 2010 1:29 AM
    The Kaneland football team was looking to play four competitive quarters while Tyler Callaghan was seeking his first touchdown of the season. They both got what they were hoping for during Friday night’s Northern Illinois Big 12 East division game at Yorkville. The Knights had to overcome a pair of turnovers and a resilient Yorkville team in the first half, but responded with a tremendous effort in the second half to win their seventh consecutive game of the season, 34-13. “I’ve got to tip my hat to Yorkville, they came out and played hard, they played a good game and that’s what we expected, Kaneland coach Tom Fedderly said. “We were hoping for a four-quarter game. We need this going into next week (undefeated Sycamore) and I thought we played a very good second half. Kaneland (7-0, 3-0) only led 14-6 at halftime but orchestrated a 15-play drive to open the second half that consumed 7 minutes and 49 seconds of the third quarter clock. The drive featured only three pass plays, but did include a 29-yard reception by Quinn Buschbacher from quarterback Joe Camiliere. Blake Serpa was the go-to guy of the drive, rushing eight times, including a 2-yard touchdown run which put the Knights ahead 21-6. “We put that drive together and that was something we were talking about for awhile, Fedderly said. “Being able to run the ball and drive like that and put some plays together to score. Yorkville (3-4, 1-2) didn’t runaway and hide though, at least not immediately. A 45-yard kickoff return by Steven Adler gave the Foxes the ball near midfield, but after a couple short gains, sandwiched between a pair of false start penalties, Buschbacher intercepted a pass, which he nearly returned for a touchdown, only for it to be brought back to midfield because of a tripping penalty. The Knights then extended their lead to 28-6, using seven plays to do so. Camiliere connected with Callaghan on a 9-yard strike at the 10:09 mark of the fourth quarter to give the 6-foot-5, 230-pound senior his first touchdown of the fall. “They (teammates) asked me again before the game if tonight was going to be the night that I would score one, Callaghan said. “I guess tonight was the night, but it doesn’t matter to me. Whoever scores, scores, I just want to go out and win. Less than a minute after sampling the end zone, Callaghan set up the Knights on their final scoring play when he leapt high in the air to intercept a Brant Corwin pass. Buschbacher followed Callaghan’s defense gem with a 13-yard touchdown run to blow the game open. “It was nice to go into a game and have to play four quarters, even if we didn’t play how we wanted to in the first half, Callaghan said. “Now we know we can make adjustments for the second half and show what we’re capable of doing. The game could not have started any better for the Knights. The Foxes fumbled the on the opening play from scrimmage and the Knights needed just two plays before Serpa took it into the end zone for a 1-yard touchdown run. But the Knights ran into some difficulties on their next three drives. Camiliere threw an interception, just his second of the season, they fumbled away another possession and they were unable to convert a fourth-down play on a 9-play drive. Still, they were able to turn things around quickly thanks to their defense, and the big-play ability of the offense. Camiliere connected with Sean Carter on a beautiful 70-yard touchdown as Carter made the catch in stride and sprinted down the middle of the field with 3:09 remaining in the first half. Meanwhile, the defense held the Foxes to a pair of first half field goals. Omarr Maldonado made a great diving tackle to help Yorkville coach Jim Still opt for the first field goal and the defensive line rushed Corwin into throwing an incomplete pass on a 3rd-and-5 on the second one. “Bend and don’t break, Fedderly said. “If we’re the good team that we think we are then we’ll be able to overcome some things and we saw that tonight.
