Laurel grinds out 37-31 victory over Central

From buzzer-beaters to blowouts, the Laurel Locomotives have won every which way in the eight-year tenure of coach Pat Hansen.

But a 37-31 victory over Eastern A archrival Billings Central on Friday at the Nelles Activities Center was anything but typical.

“We tell our kids, a win’s not a win but a competitor is a competitor,” Hansen said. “And we got that win by pure heart all the way through it.”

Top-ranked Laurel countered inconsistency and impatience on offense with a gritty defensive effort to stretch its record to 10-0 overall and 5-0 in the Eastern division.

Though it was hardly pretty, it stood as the Locomotives’ eighth consecutive victory against Central, and served as their 34th win in their last 35 regular-season games against league opponents.

Laurel trailed after the first quarter, but held the Rams scoreless in the second to grab a 10-point advantage at halftime.

Central (6-4, 3-2) rallied to eventually tie the game on the strength of 18 points and 14 rebounds by 6-foot-7 inside man Daniel Meyer, but the Rams turned the ball over too many times and couldn’t convert baskets when it matter most down the stretch.

Central went through a 4:34 span in the fourth without a field goal.

“We’ve got a lot of heart,” said Laurel senior Shawn Nardella, who helped play defense down low against Meyer despite giving away eight inches in height. “We’ve got a lot of pride and heart at our school, and we know we can win when it comes down to it at the end.”

Laurel got a boost off the bench from Dylan Meccage, whose basket with 5:35 remaining broke a 26-26 tie. Meccage was fouled on the shot, and when he missed the subsequent free throw he got his own rebound, was fouled again and (this time) cashed in on two extra fouls shots.

It was a four-point swing with just a couple seconds ticking off the clock.

Meyer scored on the low block on Central’s next possession to close the gap to within two points with 5:15 on the clock, but the Rams didn’t make another shot until Garrett Flaming’s driving layup with 41 seconds left.

By then, Laurel had a six-point lead.

“The big thing is the second quarter,” said first-year Rams coach Jim Stergar. “If we don’t turn the ball over as much as we did … I mean we had bad turnovers through the whole game, but that second quarter really beat us up.

“We recovered, but Laurel’s undefeated for a reason. They know how to play the game. They struggled from the field, and we guarded the 3-point line probably as good as they’ve seen all year. We just have to put it all together when it counts.”

Central’s defensive effort was best reflected in its performance against Laurel standout Brett Thompson. The Rams held Thompson to 11 points on 2-for-12 shooting, roughly seven points under his per-game scoring average.

Central, though, was without point guard Jacob Stanton, who missed the game due to a concussion. Stanton’s absence was at times glaring on offense.

“Central did a good job of stretching us out offensively,” Hansen said. “We got very impatient, and we didn’t possess the ball very good.

“But holding them to 31 (points) is pretty good, because I thought we gave them way too many offensive opportunities than we wanted to. It turned into a gut-it-out mess.”

NOTES: Laurel’s only Eastern A loss since the beginning of the 2009-10 season was a 59-50 setback at Sidney last Jan. 30. … Central's last victory over Laurel was a 52-43 home triumph on Jan. 22, 2009. … Locomotives guard Jake Anderson was bloodied in the mouth midway through the game, but Anderson returned to make an important free throw and play solid defense in the fourth quarter. … Boise State University football player and former Helena Capital standout Matt Miller was in attendance. Miller, an All-Mountain West performer in 2012, is a nephew of Stergar.
