Knights quiet ThunderPublished 9:32am Friday, February 7, 2014
BARRETT —The West Central Area boys were able to win its third straight game of a four game home stand as a quiet start led to a 46-32 win over the Long Prairie-Grey Eagle Thunder Thursday.
“Long Prairie is a team that loves to play a real slow down style,” Knights’ coach Kraig Hunter said. “They are very deliberate. The good thing about that for us, is that if you get a lead on them, they are not a comeback team. Being up by fourteen points against them is like a 20-25 point lead against most teams. So even though the style they play is not the most entertaining for fans, it was a good win for us.”
Brady Combs was the only player in double digits for the Knights as he scored 12 points.
For what the Knights didn’t do offensively was made up for under the rim as the visitor pulled down 31 boards compared to the Thunder’s 22. Jay Zimmerman and Dakotah Kashmark each had nine rebounds in the win.
The Knights will go for the home sweep Saturday as it hosts the Royalton Royals in a 5:30 p.m. tilt.
