Last Friday night, after only one game in the books for their 2020 basketball season, the Hackett Sr High Hornets hosted the Dover Pirates in their second game of the year. Finally hitting the court with a completely healthy roster and a full week of practice, the Sr Hornets snagged their first win 59-50 putting them 1-1 in season play. “It was a great game for us to play all of our guys. Our guys played three great quarters of basketball and got the lead all the way up to 24. Foul trouble was a constant factor in the game and those are aspects we have to clean up in order to be successful,” explained coach, Kent Elmore.
Cash Oliver cashed in with 19 points followed by Jake Fisher and Austin Cowell with 9 each, Ty Smith with 8, Jesse Esparza with 6, Fischer Shipman with 5, and Logan Slavens with 3. Four Hornets successfully secured at least one three-point shot in the game.
“Our chemistry and knowledge over a week have grown greatly. We have a great opportunity to pick up two more wins this week and get to 1-0 in conference play. We are looking forward to getting after it again on Tuesday against Magazine.” The Sr Hornets will play at Magazine on Tuesday, December 8 starting at 6 pm.
