Minneapolis Bounces Back With a Victory Over Winfield

Ben HaddenJanuary 18, 2019

After the second loss to Halstead this season, Minneapolis was looking for a bounce back in the second round of the Adolph Rupp tournament against 7th seed Winfield.

It started out with a hot run from the Winfield Vikings, taking an early lead. The Lions bounced back however, and cut the lead down to one by the end of the first quarter, 14-13. Jonah Ausherman, battling illness, came out of the gates hot with 7 points in the first quarter.

The second quarter was a better showing by the Lions, building on their momentum and taking over the lead. It was an evenly dispersed scoring attack, with 5 different people getting in on the offensive action. Trent Moeckle and Nolan White leading the way with a three pointer each. The score going into halftime was 24-20.

Coming out of halftime, the Lions looked to build on the lead, and close out the bounce-back victory. They did so, holding the Vikings to 11 points, while putting up 14 points themselves. Once again, 5 different people got in on the scoring attack, with Jonah Ausherman and Kaden McCullick leading the way with 4 points each.

The final quarter started to get dicey for the Lions. The Vikings made a little bit of a comeback, cutting the lead to 3 points. Kaden Griffin was able to put an end to the comeback, dropping a 3 pointer that stunned the Vikings. He ended up dropping 9 points in the final stanza, leading the way with Kaden McCullick, who also had 9 in the fourth. The game ended with Minneapolis on top, with a final score 61-54.

The boys are back in action on Saturday, where they will compete for 5th place, at 3:30. Halstead Highschool, against Rose Hill.
