The Loveland Tigers Freshman boys basketball team hosted conference rival Glen Este on January 23, and lost another heart breaker, 41-38.
The game began ominously for the Tigers as they had difficulty scoring in the beginning of the first quarter against a team they defeated 53-40 on the road earlier this year. Then a 7-0 run put the Tigers on top 12-5 going into the second quarter and the game seemed as it may turn out as the first game did. But, in the second quarter Glen Este came out with a pressure defense and quickly ran off 10 straight points to go ahead. Loveland fought back to regain the lead going into the half, 23-19.
In the second half Glen Este's pressure defense continued to bother the Tigers as they were limited to 1 FG in the quarter, cutting Loveland's lead to 28-27 heading into the final quarter. In the fourth quarter the Trojans tied the game at 35 with 1:10 and extended their lead to 39-35 before a 3 pointer by Anthony LaMacchia cut the lead to 39-38 with 10 seconds remaining. A quick foul on the in-bound pass by the Tigers put the Trojan's point guard on the line and produced the missed foul shot Loveland hoped to get. But, an offensive rebound off the miss by Glen Este led to another Tiger foul and this time the Trojans converted on both foul shots with just a few seconds left for the final score.
Loveland was led in scoring by Anthony LaMacchia with 22, Joe Moran recorded 8, Jordan McNally 4, and Jake DeGrace and Jon Treloar each had 2.
With the loss Loveland's overall record drops to 4-9 overall and 3-3 in the conference.

CLERMONT COUNTY, OHIO - Over 8,000 Clermont County customers of Duke Energy are without power this morning, as crew’s worth to repair lines toppled by the large snow and ice storms that hit the area this week. This morning, two county roadways are impassable, because of power lines tangled in trees and limbs that have fallen into the road; the roads closed are Wolfpen Pleasant Hill Road in Miami Township and WoodvillePike near Chilo Road in Wayne Township.
The Clermont County Engineer’s Office has five crews working this morning to plow and salt the 400 miles of roadway the agency oversees. The Engineer’s Office cautions that homeowners and businesses not push the snow from driveways and parking lots into roadways; that makes plowing difficult and creates a safety hazard for other drivers. The Sheriff’s Office says that activity is also against the law and could result in a citation.
The National Weather Service reports that several more inches of snow could fall on this area into the weekend; the county received up to 10 inches of snow from the storms this week plus ½ to an inch of ice.
The Clermont County General Health District has some information if you are utilizing alternate heat sources:
Use fireplaces, wood stoves, and kerosene heaters only if they are properly ventilated.
DO NOT use charcoal or gas grills inside to heat; they could produce deadly fumes.
Never use an electric generator indoors, inside your garage, or near an air intake for your home, due to the risk of carbon monoxide poisoning.
