The final home boys basketball game took place Tuesday, February 19th when the Raiders hosted Adrian.

Fulda had high hopes on this senior night of pulling off a victory, however, the Dragons put together a nice string of free throws at the end of the game to earn a 73-68 victory.

The Raiders held an early edge in the game with Andy Oakland and Zach Holt each notching a bucket followed up by threeís from Todd Peterson and Josh Ramerth putting Fulda up 10-6.

Adrian bounced back going on a 7-4 run to pull back within one, 13-14. With another three by Peterson, Fulda was back out front, 17-13. But back-to-back threeís by Adrian along with a baseline drive by Nick Reyne and the Dragons took a 21-17 advantage in the contest.

With 5:48 left on the clock, Zach Holt found Cole Dierks on a fast break for the two-point bucket and the Raiders followed up with a free throw by Trevor Ruesch to close the gap, 20-21.

Adrian went back to work on offense with Chris Christians dropping in two points, then Reyne and Cody Polzine combining for 9 points to push the edge back to nine, 29-20. Fulda was able to climb back from their deficit as Ramerth and Peterson each swished a three and closed out the first half down 26-31.

Fulda came out of the locker room with renewed enthusiasm putting up 8 quick points with Peterson and Oakland each dropping in a three along with two free throws from Holt.

Adrianís Reyne was almost like a one-man recking crew as he made a nifty move to the hoop for two points and on returning offensive possession nailed a three. With Collinís Kemperís three point shot, the Dragons were back on top, 41-36. Adrian was able to extend their lead 49-39 as Reyne and Theron Miller combined their efforts for eight points during a 2 minute stretch.

Andy Oakland answered with a three point shot before the Dragons went on a 10-2 run to take a 62-46 advantage with 6:35 left to play in the game.

Fulda now had their work cut out for them. They chipped away with Holt finding a lane down the middle twice and then found Oakland in the corner to pull back within ten, 53-63. Holt was not done. He dropped in two free throws and later added a layup off a steal by Oakland, 59-63.

The lead was cut to just two points, 63-67, as Trevor Ruesch managed to get the ball inside to Oakland who converted both free throw attempts as Reyne fouls out of the game. However, with just a little over a minute left, Fulda was forced to foul in hopes of having any offensive possessions to work with.

Adrianís quick pass upcourt to Miller for a layup and a free throw shot gave the Dragons a 68-63 advantage with 1:16 left on the clock.

Fulda returned the other way to have Ruesch notch a baseline drive to the hoop and quickly fouled Adrianís Benn Henning on the in bounds play. Henning dropped in both charity stripe attempts, 70-65.

With 42 ticks left, Oakland sank a three-pointer, but this was as close as the hometown Raiders would get as Adrian added a layup and another free throw to secure the 73-68 victory.

Zach Holt was the leading scorer for Fulda finishing the game with 19 points, 2 steals and 3 assists.

Todd Peterson added 17 points, 6 rebounds, 2 steals and 3 assists on the night while Andy Oakland was charted for 16 points, 5 boards and 2 assists.
