From Herald Staff Reports
Two local boys basketball teams opened their seasons on the night before Thanksgiving hoping to be thankful for a victory. One team was able to achieve their goal while the other fell just short.
Here’s a brief rundown of Wednesday night’s boys basketball action.
Wolfpack 43, Rangers 41: The Forest Park and Crawford County boys basketball teams battle tight for 32 minutes in Marengo but it was the Wolfpack who ended up squeaking away with a narrow win in the fourth quarter.
The Rangers had some players with some big nights including sohpomore Simon Jacob scoring 11 points in his first career start, Curt Hopf nearly recording a double-double with nine points and eight rebounds and Drew Howard recording six points in his first career varsity game. Forest Park also had solid performances from Isaac Uebelhor (nine points) and Reid Steffe (six points, four assists).
Forest Park will have its home opener on Saturday against Springs Valley.
Jeeps 52, Chargers 44: Northeast Dubois traveled to Petersburg on Wednesday evening and came away with a big season opening victory over Pike Central.
The Jeeps held a ten-point advantage at the halftime break but Pike Central rallied in the third and fourth quarters as they trailed by just three points with two minutes to play. However, Northeast Dubois ended the game on a 5-0 scoring run to clinch the victory.
Reece Bauer led Northeast Dubois with 14 points while Trevor Seufert added 10 points and Logan Dodd finished with nine in the victory.
