(December 6th, 2014) – PIONEER: Hosting the Cadets of North Central, the eighth grade boys of North Central stood ready to defend their home court. However, the Cadets were fully prepared to launch a full-scale invasion on the Pioneer institution.
The result of the conflict was a 41-14 victory for the Hilltop boys.
It was the Cadet defense that led to such a successful assault. They were disruptive to the Eagle offense all game long. In fact, North Central had a difficult time simply moving the ball beyond the half court line. Hilltop routinely stole the ball from mid-court, leading to easy layups in transition.
Hilltop’s McKinney was the leading scorer in the game. The Cadet eighth grader put up an impressive 26 points. Cogswell was the primary points producer for the Eagle boys. He managed 7 points in the loss.
