How sweep it is

The Hill CIty boys dominated just like the girls. The Ringnecks never trailed, led 11-2 after six minutes and change, and coasted to a 54-22 victory, their ninth consecutive win over Smith Center in the boys series.

Keith Riley’s squad led by as many as 17 in the first half before going to halftime up 26-12. The Ringnecks weren’t sharp in the first half of the third quarter, even though the Redmen never got closer than 14. Following a timeout, Hill City got it going, outscoring Smith Center 12-2 the rest of the period to go ahead 44-20.

With 6:52 remaining, the margin reached 30, meaning the clock would run continuously for the remainder of the game.

Smith Center coach Joe Burgardt picked up a technical foul in the fourth quarter. He had to be frustrated.

The Redmen fell to 3-11, while the Ringnecks upped their mark to 9-5.

Time for me to wrap this up and drive north to Norton. I’ll pick it up there.
