From Herald Staff Reports
It was a rough night for a few local basketball teams but one was able to come away with a big road victory.
Here’s a brief rundown of Thursday night’s prep sports action.
Huskies 51, Rangers 44: The Forest Park girls basketball team had a tough road battle on Thursday night in Evansville but fell just short to the Huskies of Evansville North.
After the Rangers found themselves down by nine points at the halftime break, they were able trim the lead to just three points heading into the final quarter. But the Huskies defense stymied the Forest Park offensive attack late as the Rangers were held to just five fourth quarter points.
Macie Zink led the Rangers with 14 points while Amber Theising added a season-high 10 off of the bench.
Lions 59, Jeeps 25: The Northeast Dubois girls basketball team faced an uphill battle on Thursday at Loogootee as they struggled to get much going from the opening tip.
The Lions jumped out to a 20-2 lead after the first quarter and led 37-2 at halftime as they held the Jeeps scoreless in the second quarter. Loogootee kept their foot on the gas in the second half as they cruised to victory.
The Jeeps were led by Jazlyn Sander who finished with eight points while Madison Cave added six points.
Patriots 72, Pioneers 49: After suffering a tough home loss against Gibson Southern on Tuesday, the Heritage Hills girls basketball team bounced back with a big road victory over Boonville.
The Pats led by just seven points at the halftime break but used a 27-point fourth quarter to pull away for good en route to the win.
Four Patriots finished in double-digits in the victory — Rebekah Gordon led the way with 19, Morgan Vaal finished with 15 and Hadley Lytton and Avery Neff both added 12 each.
