DEKALB JUNCTION - Basketball is a 32-minute game.
Hermon-DeKalb fell short by 12 minutes, according to Coach Steve Morrill, on Thursday in a 54-47 NAC West Division Girls Basketball loss to Heuvelton.
We were cold in the first and third quarters and didnt play 32 minutes. Heuvelton had a lot of easy baskets and they took advantage of them. We played a little better tonight than against Harrisville - so I like that - but weve got to play a full game, said Morrill whose team fell to 4-4 overall, 3-4 in NAC West.
Heuvelton Coach Rob Power liked his teams performance after a setback on Monday at Hammond.
We played much better as a team. Logan Tallman continues her excellent play and Alexis Weidner is getting her legs back and her offense showed tonight. Maddie St. Pierre really had a solid overall game and Rachel Thornhill hit a big three in the fourth and created a turnover right after it to stop H-Ds momentum a bit, said Powers whose team improved to 8-3, 6-2 NAC West heading into a home game against Harrisville on Monday.
