Hi-Liner Boys vs. West Fargo at the HAC
With the stands half full of spectators and snow on the ground, the Hi-Liner boys’ basketball team went up against the West Fargo Packers on Tuesday night in the Hi-Liner Activity Center. This game was more important than ever, coming off a rough loss last Friday against Sheyenne, so the pressure was on. After a close game, the Hi-Liners ended up taking the defeat against the Packers.
Strong start for the Hi-Liners, winning the toss-up and scoring the first basket of the game (both thanks to Jared Eggermont). The Packers bounced back quick though, scoring the first three-point basket as well as multiple two-point baskets before the Hi-Liners had the chance to score again. By the time there was ten minutes left in the half, the score was up to 16-21, Packers leading.
