WASHINGTON TWP. | Times No. 7 Washington Township closed the second quarter on a 17-0 run to blow open what was a close game and remain perfect in Porter County Conference play with an 81-48 victory over host Kouts on Friday.

Three Kouts players scored] in double figures, led by Andrew Birky’s 19. Birky also grabbed 12 rebounds for a double-double.

Cody Nelson added 18 points on 7-of-8 shooting, and Max Everaert chipped in with 12 thanks to 8-of-9 shooting at the free-throw line.

“I just let the game come to me,” Nelson said. “I tried to get good shots and I tried to set up my teammates. It all worked out.”

In all, nine of the 11 Mustangs who saw action scored a field goal.

“We had a lot of people scoring,” Kouts coach Marty Gaff said.

Nelson and Everaert had back-to-back 3-point plays. Matt Stewart followed with a put-pack, and Nick Taylor followed with a 3-pointer from the top of the key.

“We got on a roll and we were getting up and down the court and getting good looks,” Gaff said.

Everaert closed out the run with a basket in transition and a pair of free throws.

Kouts (10-1, 3-0 PCC) forced nine Washington Township turnovers in the second quarter and limited the Senators to 2-of-14 shooting.
