Junior high boys defeat the Whippets
Last Monday, the Hennessey Middle School basketball teams hosted the Okeene Whippets mirroring the fifth/sixth grade results with a girls’ loss and a boys’ victory. While the Lady Eagles dropped their matchup 45-8, the Eagles won running away 50-11.
The girls struggled to get anything going early against a stingy Okeene defense. Their full-court press gave Hennessey fits and when they got it past the halfcourt line, the shots just weren’t falling for them.
The Lady Eagles were blanked in the first half, while Okeene built a 20-point advantage. Hennessey was able to put up seven points in the third quarter to finally get on the board, but that was their only rally of the night.
