MINNEAPOLIS — The Henning boys’ basketball team is a game away from hoisting the Class A state title as the Hornets defeated Spring Grove 67-34 in the state semifinals at the Target Center Friday.

The Hornets came out on fire in the first half making around 75 percent of their shots from the field. With a great start, Henning went into the break up 37-16.

The Lions would never get into the game as the Hornets continued to pile on the points in the second half.

Parker Fraki and Sam Fisher would lead the Hornets in scoring with 15 points apiece, while teammates Isaac Fisher (14) and Adam Lange (10) were also in double figures. Fraki would also lead the Hornets in rebounding with nine.

Spring Grove (24-5), which upset top-seeded Springfield in the quarterfinals, was paced by sophomore guard Caden Grinde’s 11 points.

The Hornets will now take on North Woods High School (29-2) a 57-55 winner over Ada-Borup in the Class A title game at 11 a.m. Saturday at the Target Center. North Woods was last year’s state runner-up.
