The Camel Greyhounds (21-1) played the Fishers Tigers (17-8) on Friday in the second round of sectionals on Friday night in Carmel. They Greyhounds started off hot, outscoring the Tigers 17-5 in the first quarter and 12-5 in the second, and the pace didn’t slow much throughout the Greyhounds’ 62-52 win.

Carmel’s John Michael-Mulloy led all-scorers with 19 points and Karsten Windland had 18 of his own.

In the first quarter, Carmel got out to a 7-0 lead less than two minutes into the game with the help of three turnovers on three possessions from the Tigers. Michael-Mulloy was guarded for most of the night by Fishers freshman Jeffrey Simons, and Michael-Mulloy’s experience in the post showed as he went for six points in the opening quarter. By the end of the first quarter, Carmel was on top 17-5 and Fishers had already committed seven fouls.

Fishers looked to slow the pace in the second quarter and Carmel seemed happy to oblige. With four minutes left in the second the score was 20-7, Greyhounds. Two minutes after that the score was just 23-7. By the end of the first half, the Greyhounds were on top 29-10.

Fishers started off the second quarter with two buckets in the first minute and a half, but Carmel’s dominance in the paint forced the Tigers to commit two fouls within the same time frame. Luckily for the Tigers, at that point, the Greyhounds had only managed to make seven of their 18 free-throws on the way to their now 20 point lead. By the end of the third, Carmel was on top 41-25.

In the fourth quarter, Fishers tried to mount a comeback — cutting the lead to 6 points with 1:42 remaining — but it was too little too late and the Greyhounds went on to a 62-52 victory.

They Greyhounds will move on to face Hamilton Southeastern (16-8) in the sectional championship game on Saturday night in Carmel. Tipoff is at 7:30 p.m.
