Varsity Boys Drop One to O'Neill

by Coach Ludwig

January 29, 2018

    On Thursday night, West Holt hosted O'Neill in a re-match of the late December Stanton Holiday Tournament championship which the Huskies lost 60-43. It was also a battle between the #1 team in class C-1 (O'Neill) and the #1 team in class D-1 (West Holt).  From the opening tip, this was a back-and-forth game with neither team gaining much separation until about two minutes into the fourth quarter when the Eagles went on a run to gain the lead and garner the victory.  After a low-scoring first quarter, the Eagles led 9-7, and at half-time they had maintained a two-point, 21-19 advantage.  During the third quarter, momentum shifted in favor of the Huskies and we outscored the Eagles 17-13 to erase the deficit and take a 36-34 lead into the fourth quarter.  In the final frame, the Eagles took advantage of a couple unforced Husky errors to spark an offensive surge and win the game 59-49.  This was a hard-fought, competitive game between two quality basketball teams, and while we didn't get the outcome we wanted, tests like this should help better prepare us for NVC tournament and post-season play.
