Lions nip H-BC boys in final minute

The Hills-Beaver Creek boys’ basketball team took a tough setback from Central Lyon Monday in Hills.

The situation looked good when the Patriots sported a 37-32 advantage at the intermission, but the second half belonged to the Lions.

CL converted a three-point play with nearly one minute left in regulation play to take a 63-61 lead and the score remained in tact when H-BC missed a late three-point shot that would have given the Patriots a victory.

Zach Scholten (20 points and 10 rebounds) and Preston Wilhelmi (17 points and four assists) paced H-BC offensively.

Trenton Bass (six rebounds, five steals and four assists) and Jax Wysong (five rebounds) also turned in strong performances for the 7-7 Patriots, who play in Westbrook Tuesday.
