DEERFIELD – Fall River coach Arnie Oelke didn’t mince words during a time out midway through the final period of a key Southern Trailways Conference game against Deerfield on Thursday night.

“I said, ‘Every loose ball, every rebound has to be ours,’ ” Oelke emphasized. “We did a super job down the stretch. Our kids got more aggressive and we got that sense of urgency.”

Fall River junior guard Cody Dagnall, in particular, took the message to heart.

FALL RIVER – Fall River picked an inopportune time to go cold from the floor Friday night.

The Pirates went scoreless for a five minute-span in the fourth quarter while Deerfield went on a 13-0 run to hand the hosts a 54-44 Southern Trailways defeat in a battle of unbeaten conference leaders.

“We’re just not shooting the ball very well right now,” Fall River coach Arnie Oelke said. “We had too many unforced turnovers and that’s affecting our shooting.”

MILWAUKEE – Fall River hasn’t quite matched the offensive efficiency it displayed a season ago in boys basketball.

It wasn’t necessary in Friday afternoon’s 48-36 Southern Trailways win over Johnson Creek at the Bradley Center. The Pirates (4-1, 3-0 South) forced 27 turnovers and kept the Bluejays (1-3, 1-2) without a field goal in the opening quarter.

“I thought we played quite well in that first half defensively,” Fall River coach Arnie Oelke said. “But we just didn’t finish at the other end.”

Fall River hit just four of 12 shots but was still able to jump out to a 12-1 lead.

RIO – Even though he came off the bench Friday night, Jake Grebe was lauded by Fall River coach Arnie Oelke for his leadership.

Grebe led by example with a game-high 18 points as the Pirates took a 60-38 win at rival Rio in their only regular season meeting. With Horicon’s move to the Trailways, the Vikings moved from the South Division to the Central.

RIO –Fall River shot the ball darn well Tuesday night in a 73-61, Southern Trailways victory — one that gave them the league championship outright — at arch-rival Rio.

“Wow,” Fall River head coach Arnie Oelke said, with a couple laughs that suggested even he couldn’t believe his team’s 59.1 percent shooting effort (26 of 44), which included 11 3-pointers. “These guys are on a mission ... as you could see probably (by) the way we played tonight.”

DEERFIELD – Arnie Oelke admitted he was curious to see how his Fall River boys basketball team would handle the fourth quarter with a 39-37 deficit Tuesday night.

“It’s been a while since we’ve been in that position,” Oelke said.

The response was deafening. His Pirates swamped host Deerfield with a 21-2 run and made the Southern Trailways theirs to lose with a 62-47 triumph.
