Henning to host LP-A on Tuesday in Section 6A match up
After snow canceled practice for most of the week, and in their first game action in seven days, the Henning Hornets jumped out to an early lead and never looked back as they defeated Sebeka by a score of 83-25 on Friday night. The Hornets led 53-7 at halftime after forcing 23 steals and picking up 41 rebounds, including 20 on the offensive end of the court alone.
“We weren’t quite sure how the guys would respond after not being in the gym for three days, but we did a nice job defensively for the most part. We frequently turned them over which led to some easy buckets,” said head coach Randy Misegades.
As a team the Hornets shot 44 percent from the field, but went just 11-33 from behind the 3-point line. Tyson Misegades, Kale Misegades and Mason Hammer each hit three 3-pointers to lead the charge for Henning.
Hammer led the team with a double-double as he scored 26 points and pulled down 12 rebounds. Tyson Misegades and Kale Misegades each scored 17 points, while Lane Dilly was just 2 points shy of recording a double-double as he finished with 8 points and a team-high 14 rebounds. He also led the team with 7 steals in the win.
“We didn’t shoot the ball especially well against their zone, but we had several guys knock down a few open looks and also did a nice job getting some second opportunities,” said Misegades. “We’re looking forward to practice on Monday to try and get better.”
Also scoring for the Hornets was Noah Umland who scored 7 points off of just 3-4 shooting, Carter Dilly with 4 points, Logan Kostelecky with 3 points and Dawson Misegades rounded out the scoring with 1 point.
With the win the seventh ranked Hornets improved to 5-0 on the season as they wrap up their 2022 portion of their schedule with a non-conference game against Lake Park-Audubon at home on Tuesday night.
