Hornets second half surge upends BearsPublished 9:31am Friday, February 7, 2014
HENNING — A second half scoring surge put the Henning boys basketball team over the top of the Bertha-Hewitt Bears 55-42 Thursday.
“We struggled against the Bertha-Hewitt zone in the first half,” Hornets’ coach Randy Misegades said. “They did a good job slowing the pace and we did too much standing around. Andrew Smith got us going a little bit in the second half and we were able to stretch the lead.”
Hornets were led by Smith as the senior posted a 20 point, 10 rebound evening. Teammate Kaleb Thalmann chipped in 18 tallies in the victory.
The Hornets will take on No. 4 (Class A) ranked and undefeated Battle Lake Battlers on the road at 7:30 p.m. Friday.
