Ravens Basketball Cruise to a Win Over the Wildcats of Columbus
Hillcrest Academy returned home to Hillcrest Union Friday after four road games, and following a slow start, used a 10-0 run to gain a 16-6 lead after one period before cruising to a 65-27 win over Columbus. The Ravens outscored the Wildcats 21-7 in the second period to take a 37-13 lead into half-time. Hillcrest led 51-17 with three minutes to play in the third, as reserves played the rest of the way.
Coach Dwight Gingerich said, “It was great to see us move the ball well, and to see the shots fall. The guys are sharing the ball, and I thought we had an improved effort on the defensive boards, and doing a much better job of limiting them to one shot.”
Hillcrest Academy goes to 8-4 in conference play and 10-5 overall, and next plays Friday at Pekin.
