Hornets Bow In Regional

Cowden-Herrick finished their season in the Nokomis Regional, challenging eventual champion St. Anthony, but losing 60-52.

The Hornets hung in there in the 1st half, then smacked St. Anthony back in the 3rd to make it a 2-possession game heading into the 4th. The Hornets almost matched St. A in crunch time, but just couldn’t get over the hump.

Cowden-Herrick used the 3-point line and the free throw line to challenge the Bulldogs. The Hornets out-scored St A from the arc 15 to 6. The out-scored St. A from the line, 13 to 8. C-H shot 42% from the arc and 41% inside the arc, while shooting 76% from the line.

Despite that 14-point edge, the Bulldogs were proficient from the floor in close. They out-scored C-H by 22 points inside the arc, 46 to 24. That gave St. Anthony the win and sent C-H home.

St. A led 16-12 after one, then stayed on track with a 13-8 run in the 2nd for a 9-point lead at the break. The 3rd would determine if the Hornets would go home without a fight or go down swinging. They went down swinging.

The Hornets stung the Bulldogs in the 3rd, 17-14, and made it a 6-point game. St. Anthony stiff-armed the Hornets late, despite the Hornets 15-point period. The Dawgs scored 17 and advanced to the title match.

Colton Burrus and Dylan Barnes led C-H with 19 and 16 points, respectively. Goeckner and Williams led St. A with 20 and 19 points, respectively.

Burrus recorded a trey hat trick and was part of the solid foul shooting for Cowden-Herrick. He went 8-of-10. He dished three assists and had three boards. He had no steals, but three deflections.

Barnes scored seven times from the floor (1-3). Barnes led C-H in floor play, grabbing a team-high six boards, dishing three assists, making three steals, and blocking three shots.
