The Hodag boys copied the Thunderbird girls and led the game throughout but not as easily as the Lakeland girls team. The halftime score was 33-16 as the boys came out making shots while Lakeland was not making theirs. The Hodags led by as much as 22-10, but Lakeland went on an 11-0 run to close the gap.
The Hodags prevailed with the 68-57 win. Will Gretzinger led the Hodags with 19 points, while also in double digits were Kyle Brown 13, James Heck 11 and Kaleb Winter scoring 10. Bob Mainhardt photos.
