HILLSBORO — The Thomas More Prep-Marian boys’ basketball team defeated Goodland 54-48 in overtime on Thursday in the consolation bracket of the Trojan Classic, hosted by Hillsboro High School.

TMP, now 5-6 on the season, will play Riley County on Saturday at 1 p.m. in Hillsboro in the tournament’s fifth-place game. Riley County is coming off a 54-49 win over Republic County on Thursday after losing to undefeated Hesston 70-30 in the opening round on Monday.

TMP and Goodland played a close contest all the way through with the game featuring eight lead changes and six ties. The Cowboys led 26-24 at halftime before a strong defensive third by TMP gave the Monarchs a 34-33 lead heading into the final quarter.

Both teams struggled in the fourth quarter with Goodland outscoring TMP 5-4 to send the teams to overtime tied at 38. That’s when the offenses reignited. TMP scored 16 points in the overtime period and pulled away for the six-point victory.

Jordan Gottschalk led the Monarchs with his double-double performance, finishing with 12 points and 12 rebounds. Kameron Schmidt
added 10 more going 5 of 6 from the foul line. TMP outshot Goodland 43.5 percent to 32.7 percent, but 21 Monarch turnovers helped the Cowboys overcome the poor shooting.

TMP outrebounded Goodland 42-31. The Cowboys were only 3 of 10 from the free-throw line. Gage Ihrig led Goodland in scoring with 24 points, going 7 of 15 from 3-point range.

Goodland will face Republic County in the seventh-place game at 1 p.m. Saturday in the Hillsboro Middle School gym.
