In the books
Unfortunately for Russell, the boys could not carry the momentum over from the girls game. Ellsworth scored the first six points and never trailed, going on to win 62-48.
The Broncos, who lost to Ellsworth by 19 last month, got to within one point in the second quarter and trailed by five going to halftime, were outscored 17-2 to start the third quarter. The Bearcats’ lead never fell below 12 the rest of the way.
Got to write up these games and then go an appointment in Hays tomorrow morning. It will be frigid, which is why I refueld tonight before going home. That way, I don’t have to stand outside in the cold with the pump.
