Thunder rumbles through Knights 61-49

Published 10:08am Friday, January 4, 2013

LONG PRAIRIE — The West Central Area boys saw a first half lead slip away as the Long Prairie/Grey Eagle Thunder sent the visiting team home with a 61-49 loss Thursday.

The Knights were able to control much of the first half and went into the break with a 31-26 lead.

Nothing seemed to change for West Central in the second half, except the most important thing — made shots.

The Knights went cold from the field, allowing the Thunder to take the lead and never relinquish it.

“We executed very well in the first half”, said Knight Coach Kraig Hunter. “In the second half, we still got good shots, but we didn’t finish. We still had many chances down the stretch but had a lot of shots bounce in and out.”

Dakotah Kashmark and Drew Peterson each dropped in 14 points for the Knights in the game.

Long Prairie’s Dylan Warner proved to be tough to defend as he scored 20 marks in the win.

The Knights will be back in action Saturday as they play a 4 p.m. game on the road against Battle Lake.
