Balanced scoring, strong shooting lift No. 7 Hawks past EBF

Feb. 7—SULLY — Six players scored at least six points, the Hawks made nearly half of their shots from the floor and the Class 1A No. 7 Lynnville-Sully boys' basketball team dominated on the glass during a win over Eddyville-Blakesburg-Fremont on Tuesday.

The Hawks led by five after one quarter, extended the margin to double-digits at halftime and played even with the Rockets in the second half during a 65-54 non-conference home win.

"The boys played tough defense tonight," L-S head boys basketball coach Nick Harthoorn said. "We had five guys engaged on that end of the floor. We also did a nice job on the boards. Offensively, we shared the ball and took good shots."
