FINAL VARSITY BOYS’ BASKETBALL SCORE – Huntington Holiday Hoops – Huntington North-61 South Bend Adams-59

In the first game of the Holiday Tournament, Huntington North boys get their first win of the season versus South Bend Adams. The Vikings led most of the game, but Adam’s kept it close. Huntington North went into halftime with an 8 point lead, 31-23. After the third quarter, the Vikings lead dwindled to just 5 points (46-41). After it was all said and done, Coach Thompson gets his first win as the head coach of the Vikings 61-59.

Zach Nash reserved a seat next to coach for a large portion of the first half, after getting called for 2 offensive fouls early on in the first quarter. Having said that, Nash and Sam Double were the leading scorers of the game with 14 points a piece. Ethan Zahn knocked in 13 points and Dalton Husband contributed 9 points in his first game back from injury.

Thoughts from Coach Thompson:

“The Vikes picked up our first win of the season vs South Bend Adams in the 10:00 am game in our Huntington North Holiday Hoops Trny. Coaching staff is very proud of them. The guys showed great mental toughness battling adversity today improving on both sides of the ball as each game comes our way. Vikings are gaining confidence within themselves; within the the system.”

The Vikings play in just a few short hours against East Chicago, tip off at 6pm.

NEXT GAME: Huntington North (1-7 and 0-1 in NE8) will host East Chicago Central @ 6 pm this evening (12-28).

The Vikings battled back from a 17 point deficit at the half (24-41), but it wasn’t enough. To start the 3rd quarter, the Vikings went on a 9-0 run (33-41). By the end of the 3rd, the score was cut to 7 (41-48)

The fourth quarter was most exciting! The game looked promising when the Vikings tied the game at 51 with 5:21 left, then again when it was tied at 56 with 2:34 left. Unfortunately, that’s when East Chicago pulled away. The Vikings could not get a shot to fall for the remainder of the game and East Chicago hit their free throws. The final score was 56-62.

Huntington North had 4 of their 5 starters in double digits tonight. Senior Zach Nash led the way with a career high of 22 points, as well as 7 rebounds and 5 assists. Ethan Zahn and Asher Chipchosky each knocked in 11 points. Dalton Husband had 10 points, 8 rebounds, and 4 assists (and played all 64 minutes of the two games HN played today).

The Vikings play again at home tomorrow against Fort Wayne Snider with a 2pm tip off. In the 3rd Place game of the Holliday Hoops Tournament.
