Boys basketball sees win, loss

B y Jaime Thomas

Horde basketball players saw their second win of the season followed by a close loss last week.

On Tuesday, the boys held strong for a 61-50 win over Cambridge.

Leading the team was Jake Young, who had a game high of 20 points, with four 3-point shots boosting his score. Following Young with helpful scores were Evan Hoagland, who had two 3-pointers for a total of 16 points and Matt Fuller, who also had two 3-point shots and a 14-point night.

Trace Bourn also had a shot from the 3-point line.

The team remained several points ahead of the Indians in all quarters except the 14-13 second, when Cambridge had the upper hand. Leading the Indians was Maxwell McNeil with 15 points and Chris Wamke with 12.

Several days later on Dec. 10, the boys couldn’t keep up the momentum against Stillwater.

They suffered a 55-47 loss, which largely resulted from a lopsided third quarter.

The game started off even with a 13-13 first quarter, and Granville pulled ahead by three points by the half. But Stillwater’s 19-10 third quarter followed by a 14-12 fourth sealed the Warriors’ win.

Bourn, Young and Fuller each had a 3-pointer, while Nick Liebig had two. Liebig led his team with 12 total points.

Following the game, the Horde was 2-6 in the league and 2-10 overall.
